At LearningRx Fresno Northeast, we know that dyslexia isn’t about reading letters backwards. “Dyslexia” actually means “trouble with words” and is simply a general term that refers to reading struggles.
If you’ve tried hiring reading tutors to no avail, don’t get disheartened. There is hope!
Studies show that weak auditory processing—the cognitive skill our brain uses to hear, segment words and blend sounds—is at the root of 85% of all reading struggles. That’s why our team at LearningRx Fresno Northeast uses cognitive training to target and strengthen auditory processing and other cognitive skills to help make kids, teens and adults better, faster readers.
We use one-on-one brain training that includes challenging but fun, game-like exercises to create dramatic and lasting results. Students work with their trainers for about an hour a day, with programs lasting 12 to 32 weeks, in most cases.
If you want to help you student fall in love with reading, start by strengthening the foundational tools that make reading easier. Reading struggles can affect almost all academic areas, as well as confidence, So, many parents report seeing significant changes in not only school, but life in general!
