Helping Your Smart, Struggling Homeschool Child to Read and Succeed
By Mira & Mark Halpert
Home school parents have called us from around the country. They have a smart child who is struggling to read and frustrated. They want to know:
Why their bright child is struggling -- is it dyslexia, an attention issue, a vision issue, or …?
We are Mira Halpert M.Ed. and Mark Halpert. We have four children, two of whom struggled to learn to read.
Mira developed the 3D Learner Program® that helped daughter, Julie, to improve her reading comprehension 4.2 grade levels in 7 months. Julie later earned her Masters in Education from the University of Florida. Mira’s son, Michael’s reading score improved by 40 points within that same school year. He is now an Honor’s College student.
Since 1997, we have helped over 1,000 students with both our 1-on-1 3D Learner Experience Program ® as well as our 3D Learner Home Learning System®
We know these students are often smart and learn differently and we label them GOLD Students (TM) Gifted Operating with a Learning Difference, but they have one, two or even five of the following challenges:
They have difficulty paying attention to that which is boring. Material needs to be engaging in order for them to be enrolled in the lessons.
They have visual perception and other sensory processing issues -- skipping words or lines when reading, reversing numbers or letters or difficulty copying/writing information. Brain and body integration exercises need to be used to build the necessary brain circuitry needed for optimal learning.
We know that Informed, Empowered and Proactive Parents are the best defense. We have developed the following 7-point plan to help you help your student.
7 Tips For GOLD Students -- Will Help Others Too
Your child can struggle with more traditional programs that bore them, or they can blossom when you capitalize on their strengths, address their issues and make small changes to get them ready to learn.
To Make The Difference, Consider
Consider more formal programs to do exercises before starting work -- we use Brain Gym®, Primal Reflexes®, and the Freeze Frame® Biofeedback® system. To understand why exercises can be invaluable for all students, parents and especially GOLD Students go to Exercises That Train The Brain
