Identifying Your Child's Processing Problem DVD
In this first DVD from the "Struggling Learner Seminar video series, renowned speaker and educational specialist, Dianne Craft, shares clearly and compassionately tips and techniques to differentiate the challenges experienced by struggling learners versus more common issues of immaturity. Beginning with an overview discussion of right and left-brain differences and the maturity issues common in boys, she outlines the four learning gates and levels of processing problems. After identifying the four learning gates: Visual Processing, Audio Processing, Writing and Focusing/Attention, she shares common signs to help parents and teachers readily identify the child's greatest struggle. Once identified, she discusses a 3-pronged approach for all struggling learners and touches briefly on targeted activities in each of the four gates. Interwoven are nutritional considerations and research as well as encouragement that struggling learners will be able to overcome and make great progress if the right teaching approach is utilized. This is an excellent introduction to brain integration and processing problems. Included is contact information for additional teaching resources. Contains references to prayer and God given/ordained situations. DVD run time approximately 60 min. ~ Deanne
"Help! Why is teaching my child such a mystery?"
"My child is not learning as quickly as his age group. Is it just a maturity issue, or should I do interventions?"
The Four Learning Gates
There is no mystery to learning. There are only four learning gates. You can become an expert in diagnosing learning glitches or disabilities with or without formal testing.
In the "Identifying Your Child's Processing Problem" DVD the four Learning Gates will be explored in detail:
* Visual Processing Gate (slow, halting reading; reading reversals)
* Auditory Processing Gate (your "word guesser", sounds out the same word over and over; sight words hard to remember; easily confused; always saying "what")
* Writing Gate (great orally, but writes very little; seems allergic to his/her pencil; does all math in his/her head; copying takes so long; HATES to write!)
* Focusing/Attention Gate (you need to sit with him/her to finish their work; frequently says "I forgot"; easily upset; Sensory issues...noises bother him/her...tags, transitions, foods...anxiety about many things).
Whether a child is struggling with just a learning glitch, or has an identified learning disability like dyslexia, dysgraphia, auditory processing problem or autism, you can do interventions at home that will make learning much easier. LEARNING DOESN'T HAVE TO BE SO HARD! And you will find that it does not have to be expensive to do the interventions.
So many teachers and students have been waiting for this video presentation of this simple but powerful method of diagnosing learning glitches or disabilities with or without formal testing.
For use with teenagers, adolescents, and young children.
