Enjoy learning again with a group and individual online tutoring sessions, enrichment, and intervention tutoring classes, dyslexia screenings, parent/teacher courses, and freebies. Basically, I have your child stop “guessing” at words and being frustrated by not understanding what they read. They will become confident in their own ability to read, write, and speak!! In my ELBERT™ classes and sessions, I cover the affirmations of strengths of having a neurodifference and view them as “gifts” such as we are highly intelligent and have the ability to use tools and strategies to compensate and problem-solve for our struggles to read, write, or spell.

I help you and/or your child discover and use their strengths. Those with a neurodifference, often have intuitive and insightful, well-developed social awareness and emotions while possessing a lexicon of words to help with the synonymous “whys of dyslexia”. We also have deep and holistic, list-form thinking, problem-solving, and building/constructing abilities, computer skills, and gaming strategies. Lastly, we seek out endeavors of creative, imaginative, visual, artistic, and visionary skills while taking on inventing and innovating pursuits. Lastly, we may excel at thinking of “outside the box” solutions, seeing a problem from many different sides, and spatial relationships along with the ability to think in 3 dimensions.

Helping Those with a Neurodifference Enjoy Learning Again:Group Tutoring, Parent Courses, & Freebies

I understand the impact anger and shame that a negative social environment has on those who have learning differences, or as I prefer to say “neurodifferent”, ELBERT™ is a program that employs a positive attitude and positive environment towards learning for those who have difficulty with learning. Instead of allowing shame and anger to overwhelm the learner, I focus on bringing in positive emotions and teaching methods that help the learner with their learning difference. #1- I enjoy being a “confidence builder” and “inspire” those with a neurodifference like myself!

People with dyslexia have a sound and language processing problems. They will struggle to connect letters to sounds (mainly problems identifying speech sounds and learning how they relate to letters and words-decoding); as well, those with visual processing disorder struggle to understand visual information such as letters, shapes, or objects and, mainly, problems processing graphic symbols. Related to the absorption and processing of sounds, sounds especially can be omitted from words by the student, students with dyslexia most commonly omit letter sounds, words, phrases in the middle position, then the end, and least commonly the beginning. When they omit, they might do repetition(s), substitution(s), addition(s) or delete altogether or fusions, on the other hand; transversal and reversal are more common in students with a visual processing problem.

Because dyslexia and dysgraphia cannot be cured, students can develop tools and strategies to help their working memory, phonological awareness, reading, speaking, and spelling. For Spelling, Dyslexia and Dysgraphic students need sound-word knowledge. Sound-word knowledge is how many letters and how many sounds are in each word. Again, related to the absorption and processing of sounds, sounds especially can be omitted from words by the student, students with dyslexia most commonly omit letter sounds, words, phrases in the middle position, then the end, and least commonly the beginning. When they omit, they might do repetition(s), substitution(s), addition(s) or delete altogether or fusions, on the other hand; transversal and reversal are more common in students with a visual processing problem. Notably!!! After Spelling a word, They need to check their spelling by count the letters to check to see if they added or deleted any letters. They count the sounds to see if they repeated, substituted, or added any sounds to the word. Read More Here: https://lnkd.in/dG9yekQ
