Does this look familiar?
Is homework a battle?
Is your bright child not feeling so bright?
Is your child working very hard, with minimal results?
Is tutoring really fixing the problem?
If you sometimes feel helpless to support your child when it comes to learning, you are not the only one. It's a lonely feeling to see your child struggle in school.
Every classroom has children who are struggling to learn despite proof of their intelligence.
Learning problems are hurting many more than those who are diagnosed. In fact, for every child who gets extra help, there are 2 more who need help but don't qualify. Sadly, many of these children are viewed as lazy or unmotivated. Their self-esteem gets lower and lower with every "failure". Some are taught to cope, but the problems are rarely eliminated.
Most learning and attention challenges, whether they are associated with a diagnosis or not (Dyslexia, ADHD, CAPD, NVLD, etc.), do NOT have to be permanent.
At the Center for Cognitive Learning (CCL), we help students of all ages become comfortable learners.
How do we do it? By developing individualized training programs to increase or correct weak or unbalanced underlying learning skills which are at the root of the learning problem.
If your child or youth's struggles also include concerns with conduct at school and/or home, we often combine our services with an individualized behavioural program provided by Hébert Family Support Services (HFSS) .
The team at HFSS provides tremendous support to the CCL team, the school team and directly with the family when it comes to managing undesirable behaviours and developing new and positive routines. Check out their website for more information at www.hfss.ca.
