Understanding and Solving Learning Difficulties
You would not want to build a 10-story building on a foundation for a single story home. It is equally difficult to develop a solid learning system when something in the foundation is weak. During each phase of our programs, from the assessment to completion, we make sure that the foundation for the skill is developed to an appropriate level. When tutoring, extra practice and other school-based interventions do not solve the problems; there is something in the continuum interfering.

Motor, visual, auditory, attention, memory and executive function systems develop and are used with increasing sophistication as one move up the continuum. Higher level success is dependent upon a solid lower level foundation.
Individualized Attention for Each Student
As you study the continuum you will notice that there is an overlap among segments. In addition, within each segment, there are higher and lower skills. In order for a student to make and sustain progress, we start working on the highest level they can handle and still benefit from.
However, without careful attention to the underlying skills that need to be addressed, students will not progress. That is why the tutoring, after-school programs and endless hours of homework have not helped solve the learning problems. Some underlying skills are so underdeveloped that the student cannot learn easily and efficiently so they can hold on to the new information.
When children are struggling, it is so tempting to attack the academic areas where grades are poor. Not all students need to start at the bottom of the continuum. However, it is very important to recognize that success at the higher levels is supported by stronger skills at the lower level of the continuum.
