YOU can help your child overcome learning disabilities and learn to read, write, or do math, at home, even if you have NO teaching background.
Let’s face it, whether your child has ADHD, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, or Dyscalculia, you’re looking for a way to help your child. You need solutions. There are proven ways to reach and teach your child.
Whether your child has one or more learning disabilities, is in public school, private school, or you are homeschooling, you can implement programs to help your child.
Your biggest challenge after your child’s specific learning disabilities are identified is figuring out HOW to help your child learn.
Learning Abled Kids will help you figure out WHAT TO DO to help your child overcome his learning disabilities.
As an Instructional Designer, Homeschooling Mom, and Educational Success Story Coach, my goal is to provide you with HOW-TO information, training, and coaching, so you can help your child learn successfully.
I helped my sons overcome their learning disabilities, by designing great individualized education programs. I’m confident you can help your child too!
You can launch Your Child’s Education Success Story Today by using the resources provided throughout the Learning Abled Kids website.
Once you identify your child’s learning needs, you’ll have three choices for getting the help your child needs:
1) Go after your school like a momma bear, waving the IDEA Laws and demanding an adequate and appropriate education for your child,
2) Start hiring private providers to fill in the gaps with proven remedial programs,
3) Do it yourself (not as difficult as you may think). You CAN help your child at home when you’re armed with the right information and proven programs. This is true whether you provide part-time help in addition to traditional school, or whether you choose to immerse your child in a proven educational program at home. You can homeschool learning disabilities right out the window!
I have followed all three paths. I went through the Georgia Advocacy Office’s Parent Leadership Support Program to learn about special education advocacy. I advocated at my child’s school and hired professionals to provide instruction I didn’t think I could handle. Ultimately I ended up teaching my boys myself in spite of their dyslexia, dysgraphia, ADHD, executive dysfunction, and more.
Your child may be struggling with dyslexia (reading decoding), dysgraphia (writing and written expression), and/or have difficulty with dyscalculia (math facts and math reasoning). It can be frustrating at best and downright scary when you think about the long-term issues your child may have if he never learns the academic basics.
I have been there and I worried that!
Here’s the deal:
I know you can do this too–You can help your child overcome learning disabilities. Whether your child has ADHD, Asperger’s, dyslexia, dysgraphia, or any other learning disability, you can help your child.
I did it. Other parents have done it. It CAN be done. You just need to know where to start!
Your First Three Steps to take towards creating your child’s success story:
1) Get a comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation from a highly qualified neuropsychologist. You need to KNOW what learning challenges are preventing your child from learning;
2) Figure out your child’s learning style so you can teach your child in the way that he learns as an individual. When it comes to education, one size never fits all. By using your child’s learning style to reach his mind, you can improve his learning abilities;
3) Find PROVEN Programs for reading disabilities. Use PROVEN programs for Memory and Processing speed to address each cognitive process that affects your child’s learning. Use proven programs for each of your child’s learning disabilities, then provide the programs–one way or another.
