Step 3 - The Right Accommodations In School

The school has lots of resources to help your child.  What help should you ask for?  This module helps you determine what accommodations to consider and which ones to focus on first. We'll help you sort out the "alphabet soup" of acronyms that the school system uses, to ensure your child has all of the help he or she needs.

Whether your child qualifies for services through the school, there are plenty of ways you can help at home.  In this module you will learn specific changes to help your child with:

  • Writing
  • Spelling
  • Organization
  • Use Of Technology

Step 6 - Focus and Concentration

  • How to recognize when issues with focus and concentration are symptoms of an underlying issue.
  • Knowing when movement during learning is okay
  • Activities and life-style changes to help
  • Supplements that may be helpful
Step 7 - Online Help

The internet is a sea of information. But how do you know which resources are best for your child?  More importantly how do you know which ones you can trust?

In this module you will learn where to turn to get help for:

  • Reading
  • Math
  • Speech
  • Keyboarding
  • Dictation software

Step 8 - Services Outside Of School

Step 9 - Fix The Energy Leaks

Children with learning issues expend an incredible amount of energy to keep up in school.  In this module you will learn:

  • What energy leaks are
  • How they are affecting your child's ability to concentrate in school.
  • Simple changes you can make to "plug" these energy leaks.
Step 10 - Gifts and Talents

Because struggles in school can affect your child's self-esteem, it is important for your child to recognize and develop his or her strengths and talents.  In this module you will learn exactly how to do that.
