Academic Achievement Programs
More than just tutoring...
When a child is struggling academically, repetition of subject matter is typically not enough. The student's cognitive tools must be sharpened.
Deficits in the underlying cognitive skills that are required to achieve academic success are the likely root of the problem. These abilities include, but are not limited to, cognitive skills such as processing speed, working memory, attention, listening comprehension, visual processing, executive functioning, logic and reasoning, and integration of skills.
We use research based, neurocognitive interventions that strengthen underlying cognitive skills, and as a result, the student becomes a better learner. Our focus is to target the student's entire learning system, not just the surface skills. By elevating these essential skills, the student becomes a more efficient learner, thus making learning easier.
Listening Ears will customize a program tailored to your child's specific needs using clinically proven interventions including Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes, PACE, Master the Code, and Cogmed Working Memory Training to name a few.
A student will undergo a comprehensive assessment to determine which methods will be most effective for your child. Sharing current psycho-educational testing results and/or other professional evaluations that may have been previously conducted is also helpful in determining the student's learning style and program compatibility.
With the right program, a student can experience significant improvement in reading, spelling, comprehension, memory, attention, math, social skills, and other areas of academic and personal success.
