It is a FUN way to learn and your students will love it! We, as teachers, can change a frustrating, unhappy year to a successful one by making them feel as smart as the really are. Read More…
Are you working with a struggling learner?
Are you working with a struggling learner? I have developed a unique diagnostic program that will reveal where the learning process is breaking down for your child and will train the parent in using the corrective steps that will help overcome the child’s processing “glitch”.
I also offer educational and nutritional counseling that will dramatically improve your child’s learning and behavior.
Inside this website you will find free articles and videos that will inform you as to what could be the real problems that your children might be facing. My Daily Lesson Plans for Struggling Learners are also available here for free.
We believe you will be encouraged to hear the stories of Brianna and Colton, two children whose lives were touched by Dianne Craft and why their mom, Pam Gates, joined on with Dianne on her mission to improve the lives of struggling learners.
This “The Biology of Behavior” update explores the causes behind atypical child behavior and walks you through several diagnostic checklists to determine whether or not your child has a yeast overgrowth that is truely the cause of his or her behavioral and/or learning difficulties. If you are wondering whether or not my CD set of the same name is the right program for you to follow, watch this video and find out!
Watch “Sight Words” and explore the way that the brain processes what we read and how sight words are often difficult for children to sound out and read, particularly those with visual processing glitches, dysfunctions, and dyslexia. Does your child struggle with “outlaw” words, like “city” or “the”? Are repetition, change of location, slower speed, or louder speech not working? Try Sight Words! In this video you will see a demonstration of how my Sight Words Cards work and the reasoning behind why embedding images into letters helps these children read.
