Reading, Writing and Spelling with Dyslexia.
Why Doesn't Tutoring Work for My Child? Could the Reading Problems Be Dyslexia?
How can I tell if my child has dyslexia? When children are learning to read and have difficulty reading, they are given extra help learning to read through the use of tutoring. If reading difficulties cease and improvement continues after the tutoring help is terminated, the problem is solved. However, if reading difficulties resurface after tutoring has been discontinued, then what? It's very possible that your child is suffering from a learning disability such as dyslexia or ADD. If this is the case trying, the same reading solutions will often get the same results. One or more of the following learning difficulties will cause significant, long-lasting reading and learning problems in children: poor visual memory, poor visual tracking, lack of concentration (ADD or ADHD), poor auditory processing and dyslexia. All of these learning difficulties can be strengthened through the use of Physio-Neuro Therapy developed by Learning Technics.
The Struggle Of Learning To Spell With Dyslexia
Parents of children struggling with dyslexia and other learning problems will often spend hours working on a list of spelling words only to have the child miss most of the words on the spelling test. Or the student may remember the words long enough to pass the spelling test, but three weeks later he/she will be unable to spell these words. Poor spelling skills, in turn, creates poor writing skills. One or more of the following difficulties will cause significant problems with both writing and spelling: poor auditory processing, poor visual memory, lack of concentration (ADD & ADHD), poor short-term memory and dyslexia. The exercises involved in Physio-Neuro Therapy are designed to strengthen these developmentally weak areas of processing, making it possible for your child to attain perfect spelling scores and significantly improve their writing skills.
Dyslexia Is Correctable! There Is An Answer!
At Learning Technics, we have observed that one of the symptoms of dyslexia is poor directionality. Dyslexia and the associated symptom of poor directionality can be devastating for a student. It can make reading laborious, spelling almost impossible and writing frustrating. While both reading and writing the student will have difficulty visually discriminating between letters such as b & d or p & q and between words such as no & on or mom & wow. They will often confuse sounds and the sequence of sounds while both writing and reading. For example, try reading the following sentence: "Daeling wiht boor birtionaltiy can de bevastating for a stubent." In a classroom setting, dyslexic students constantly deal with this type of frustration. Through the use of Physio-Neuro Therapy, which consists of a series of activities tailored to stimulate specific types of neurological development, these learning difficulties can be permanently eliminated

The Poor Golf Swing
For a poor reader with a neurological deficiency to practice reading is like a poor golfer practicing his bad swing. He will get better and better at doing it wrong. That is what tutoring and tutors do to poor readers if the underlying problem causing a student to read poorly is not identified first. The point is a tutor cannot correct a problem by just treating the symptom.
