Reading Struggles

Reading StrugglesDo you have a child that is a struggling reader?  Have you wondered if your child has dyslexia?   Once again Dr. Jan asks us to think differently and drop the thought of labels.  Labels are given when you can check off a number of present symptoms. What good is that?  The Neurodevelopmental Approach looks at what is causing the symptoms and finding solutions for those symptoms.

Common symptoms of dyslexia are difficulties with reading, writing, and spelling.  To be able to read, you need to have good visual abilities. To write, you need to know where you are spatially so that you can make your hand move across the page accurately. To spell correctly, the ability to visualize is extremely important.  Don’t know what all this means?  Listen to the podcast for a thorough explanation.

If your child has symptoms such as difficulty blending sounds into words, reversing letters, and/or reading slowly or hesitantly, don’t despair. Dr. Jan shares possible causes and solutions for these struggles.  There is hope. If you address the problems, these symptoms diminish or disappear entirely.  Once these issues are no longer troublesome, students quickly catch up to their peers.

This week’s Brain Coach Tip will start you down the path to taking the struggles out of reading.  You will also learn how you can be proactive with your preschool child to avoid reading struggles in their future.

Don’t miss the handout attached here with the symptoms of Dyslexia and the root causes that could be addressed with NeuroDevelopment.  You will also find discount codes.

Homeschooling Special Needs 911

Have you been considering home schooling your child who has been struggling academically or is labeled with ADD, ADHD, Autism, Auditory Processing Disorder or dyslexia? Special Needs Homeschool 911Do you find that your child with unique learning needs has been happy-go-lucky all summer while the pressure of school has been off?  Are you seeing that now the closer to the start of school you come, the more anxious the child is?  Have you been considering home schooling your child who has been struggling academically or is labeled with ADD, ADHD, Autism, Auditory Processing Disorder or dyslexia?  Or, are you just wondering if you have the knowledge to continue home schooling a special needs child? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, this podcast is for you.

You can look forward in this podcast to some interesting information about the purpose of education.  Dr. Jan will encourage you to write your personal goals for the education of your child.  What is really important?  Actually, that is a question all home school educators need to answer.  When you realize what is really important, the stress for you can be reduced, and you won’t be tossed by the wind of the next new curriculum or the next great suggestion from a friend.

The NeuroDevelopmental Approach for Life really does take the guesswork out of your quest to educate your children.  The better the brain functions, the easier life and learning can be.  You might ask, “But aren’t we just born with all the brain power we are going to get, and you just have to work with what you have?”  For many years, educators echoed that understanding, but NeuroDevelopmentalists have known for over 65 years that the brain has plasticity.  This unique feature of the brain, allows it to change with the right kind of stimulation.  Learn how to release your children’s full potential with this and other Brain Coach Tips.

Create a Positive Learning Environment – Part 1

Create a Positive Learning Environment with Dr. Jan BedellLiving in a household where the environment is negative is no fun for anyone.  There are many factors that could cause this undesirable situation to be happening in your home.  Some such factors can actually result in symptoms of learning struggles and even labels like ADD, ADHD or dyslexia.  I am not saying your child might need a label – far from it!  You just need to know what the possible causes are and what you as a parent can do to change them. Some of these causes that are affecting your children negatively could be something that you have never thought about and the simple solutions might surprise you!

In part 1 of this message, the Brain Coach will share ways to help metabolic (inner chemistry of the body) and neurodevelopmental issues. Also, you will be equipped with a way to change your interactions with your child from negative to positive. These are some of the first steps to creating a positive learning and home environment. Examples of how to make handwriting, math and reading a more positive part of your school day are included as well.

In part 2, we will tackle how to deal with the negative behavior coming from your child as it pertains to a sin nature we all inherited at birth.

Struggling Learners and When to Get Help – MBFLP 143

mbflp-struggling-learners-when-to-get-help-v

 

How desperate we are to avoid labeling our kids! And with good reason … if they’re in a classroom setting, maybe. But as homeschoolers, we have a much better handle on the social side, and there are serious benefits to your struggling child when you get her tested earlier rather than later. This episode, we talk about our own struggling learner and what we discovered on the way from a late start … to a college scholarship! There’s hope!

MBFLP – Homeschooling Boys

Radio Show Homeschooling Boys

Homeschooling is a great option for families with sons because frankly, institutional classrooms are not very friendly to normal, active, distractible young boys. On the other hand, the same traits which make it hard to teach boys in a schoolroom setting can make it challenging at home, too! This week we talk about how boys learn differently, and how you can work with their particular style to make education both effective and enjoyable — for them and for their teacher!
