Learning and Reading Help For Adults

Adults can improve reading and learning at any age

Yes, if you have been a slow reader or have struggled with reading comprehension or dyslexia your entire life, it seems unlikely that anything can change.

But we now know the brain is plastic, it can improve function at any age.  The window to improved reading, processing and test taking is always open. We provide reading help for adults in the form of online brain training software, 30 minutes a day, 3-5 days a week. It can make a significant difference in just a few months.

What Learning Issues Look Like

Adults tend to make allowances for their reading and learning issues. If listening is a struggle due to weakened auditory processing skills, they know to limit conversations in noisy rooms.

If reading has always been a struggle, they typically do not read much, and accept that they will always be slow readers and will struggle with reading comprehension if the text is long or complicated.

These ongoing learning issues can also block career progress. Their impact on test taking makes required certificates hard to achieve or simply impossible.

Treatment Options

Most adults live with learning issues, wrongly assuming that if their schools were unable to help them, nothing can.

They are wrong about that.

Most schools do not even address the source of learning difficulty. The tools they use to help students work around their underlying issues — word lists, extra tutor help, sitting at the front of the class — are coping strategies only. Chances are you have not yet tried to tackle the source of your reading or learning difficulty.

Advances in neuroscience now make it possible to go after these underlying delays particularly with respect to reading and test taking.
