Students who have auditory and/or language processing problems work harder than anyone! A child doesn’t wake up in the morning and decide not to do well in school!
The good news is, we at Neurotech Solutions stay current on peer-reviewed scientific research as to how the brain learns, how the brain learns to read, and what to do about it!
It takes thoughtful interpretation of evaluation results, review of your child’s early learning and educational history, your input, how hard your child works to comprehend language and communicate, understanding of your child’s strengths and weaknesses, and insight as to what might be getting in the way of your student’s ability to communicate effectively and experience success in the classroom.
