Help For Reading Problems & Dyslexia
Reading is the gateway to learning. It is an important functional skill for a child’s learning development process. In a child’s growing years from birth to age 7, development of these key functional skills is crucial. Developmental delays in this area would result in various forms of learning difficulties for a child.
Dyslexia is a learning difficulty that affects the skills needed to read words quickly and accurately. It can also affect writing and spelling. It is a lifelong condition and the most common issue in the world.
Some common signs include:
- Reading or spelling inaccurately
- Trouble matching letters to sounds when reading
- Struggles with learning new words
- Trouble recognising sight words (e.g. he, she, would, could).
If you are concerned that your child may have this learning disability, we are able to help you to find out what are the next steps and help your child overcome any learning disability with our wide array of targeted treatments and therapies for children with learning disabilities. Singapore Brain Centre’s brain training and sound-to-code reading training can become the foundation for a life of easier, faster and more fluent reading. By identifying the skill weaknesses behind each student’s specific reading problems, we are able to overcome a lifetime of poor reading in a matter of weeks!
Reading depends on strong cognitive skills for consistent success. Efficient auditory processing is at the core of all reading success. Studies by the department of education have suggested that poor auditory processing skills contribute to over 80% of the nation’s reading problems! If the student struggles to read, it is very likely that he or she is held down by an auditory processing weakness. To better understand dyslexia treatment, read our blog article here.
Identify Processing Deficits
Singapore Brain Centre’s testing can quickly identify any specific auditory processing deficits. Training can be formulated to strengthen those weaknesses and rebuild the reading foundation the student needs. Nothing changes lives quite as dramatically as the improvement in reading that comes from cognitive brain training.
