Learning Difficulties

Help for homework stress, disappointing grades, inefficient test-taking

Learning difficulties can have a profound impact on your child’s day – from struggling to follow the teacher in class, homework stress, disappointing grades, and reading difficulty. These are indications of learning inefficiency that can in many cases be resolved by isolating and exercising the cognitive and language skills that go into learning.

Since reading, writing, and listening are all related to language, auditory processing is most often the source of difficulty. Here’s why that should be your starting point.

Our programs provide help learning with a range of exercises working on cognitive, language and reading skills. Our aim is to be one-time, lasting solution that removes the impediments to learning, thereby having a profound and positive impact on your child’s attitude and enjoyment of learning.

Learning Difficulties We Help

Homework Frustration & Test Taking

Many children take a long time (too long) over homework or resist homework altogether.  These same children are also very likely under-performing when taking tests.  Our learning help targets the listening, attention, working memory and reading skills needed to turn this around.

Lack of Focus

learning difficulties in kidsIn younger children it is sometimes hard to separate 6-year-old-itis from more serious attention issues. Check out these symptoms of inattentive ADD. If your child is inattentive mainly while reading check out these reading difficulties to see if any resonate.

Failing any of the above, the most likely cause of difficulty is a general delay in cognitive skill development — some children just need more time to develop these skills.  Delayed cognitive skills mean learning and reading will not be efficient.

This can be changed — cognitive skill growth can be accelerated. This is how our learning help works. Here are some of the other difficulties we address.

Executive Function

Executive function is an organization and planning skill. Our learning help creates the cognitive efficiencies needed for executive function skills to develop normally.

Working Memory

Working memory is associated with listening and reading comprehension, reasoning and intelligence, and attention stamina. Our adaptive software builds auditory and visual working memory skills.

Traumatic Brain Injury

Our neuroscience-based learning software works at a deep-seated, fundamental level and so can make a difference for a number of other less well-known learning disabilities, and the symptoms of traumatic brain injury and stroke.

Should You Take Action?

Here is an article to help you decide if an intervention is needed.  One approach is to check out our symptoms pages – APD symptoms here, dyslexia symptoms here, ADHD here.  Or you could pay for a psychological assessment.

Or schedule a call with a Gemm Learning consultant who can help you.

 “This has been the best 9 weeks of Maleek’s academic life! He’s turning in assignments, he’s more confident on the basketball court and all his teachers are saying how they see maturity and growth they have never seen before. He had an A, four B’s and 2 C+’s on his most recent report card and is passing geometry for the first time ever!!!  This is the best academic report he has ever gotten.”
