Finding Help for Dyslexic Children
Empower Your Child to Read With Confidence
Studies show that 88% of reading difficulties and dyslexia cases stem from a lower awareness of phonics and delays in auditory processing. However, dyslexia treatment can rewire processing in children. Programs like Gemm's focus on the individual child's underlying problems. And we reduce or eliminate dyslexia symptoms in a few months.
Our programs are:
At home, with trusted professional oversight
Individualized and self-paced
Backed by 240+ studies and 55 patents
Children with dyslexia do not always hear the sounds - phonemes - inside words. Reading is a real challenge, leading frustrated children to dislike learning. And while there is no cure for dyslexia, you can confront the learning disability by treating the cause. Gemm Learning guides children through the Fast ForWord program, improving listening efficiency and making it easier to pick out individual sounds. It thereby helps dyslexia - improving fluency and comprehension - one time, for all time.
A New Hope for Children with Dyslexia
It is now established science that the brain is plastic - it can rewire. Dr. Norman Doidge calls brain plasticity the most meaningful scientific discovery of the last 50 years. It is a major opportunity to treat dyslexia and other learning issues.
Our Fast ForWord software creates new neural activity, as shown in this pre- and post-fMRI image. It exercises the language processing region of the brain - the source of dyslexia -and leads to easier, more natural reading, and better comprehension in just a few months.
Taking the Right Dyslexia Treatment Steps
The most common at-home dyslexia treatment at home is tutoring or reading software that mimics school instruction, most often with disappointing results. These measures are like pumping air into a leaking tire - temporary fixes designed to cope with symptoms. They don't address the underlying impediments.
We target the root causes of dyslexia, through the Fast ForWord program. It starts at the bottom of the treatment pyramid and works up:
- Build a cognitive foundation. Most children with dyslexia need help with phonological awareness and related skills. All students start here.
- Develop reading fluency. Children then complete exercises to boost spelling, vocabulary and language structure, common difficulties with dyslexia.
- Reading comprehension. We individualize this phase, depending on your child's skill gaps and your goals. Exercises build vocabulary knowledge and grammar skills, which are required for reading comprehension.
- Critical reading. The final step, designed for students in middle school and higher, drives reading with metacognition. It's the ability to think about what you are reading - to self-adjust and think critically.
Most importantly, your child is different from any other. The amount of time spent at each stage depends on your specific needs. And based on your child's age, the protocols and outcomes will differ. Younger children need work on cognitive fundamentals, while older children need training in fluency and comprehension skills. We're here to find what works for wherever your child is in the process.
Dyslexia programs by age
Fast & Effective
Your child needs the underlying cause to be isolated and then fixed - and that's what we focus on. It's the most effective way to treat a problem.
Most dyslexia interventions provide added practice and strategies to work around the underlying difficulty, but they don't address it head-on.
We target the causes of dyslexia from the outset, before building essential reading skills in sequence. It is based on the science of brain fitness, addressing dyslexia at its cognitive source.
