Learning challenges can be debilitating for many children and can cause a whole host of other psychological issues, especially with self-esteem and anxiety. Most kids with learning disabilities have high IQs with their potential being blocked by Neurological Dysregulation. Many times parents do not understand why their children struggle. We know why and we can show you why, so that you understand and can help your child.
At Chapel Hill Brain Centre we help children with a variety of learning disabilities and learning disorders. Each area of the brain has been mapped out by scientists and their functions discovered. In the case of learning disabilities, the part, or parts, of the brain that control the particular academic skill can be dysregulated. When the affected brain area is regulated and strengthened and then communication between related areas is improved, learning challenges fall away. Improvements in neurological regulation successfully help children with the below learning disabilities to improve their performance and confidence as students.
- Dyslexia: children suffer with difficulty recognizing letters, learning letter sounds.
- Dyscalculia: children demonstrate problems with learning numerical and visuo-spatial fundamentals and skills
- Dysgraphia: children use distorted and incorrect handwriting, as well as issues with other fine-motor skills.
- Dyspraxia: children plagued by significant difficulty with carrying out routine tasks that instead become clumsy with uncoordinated movements. Can be global of all body movements or only of speech movements.
Solutions in the Brain for Learning Disabilities – Neurological Regulation
Neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to improve its performance, is at the heart of the Chapel Hill Brain Centre program. Learning disabilities are caused by Neurological Dysregulation Syndrome (NDS). Depending upon which areas of the brain are dysregulated, the subsequent skills and abilities are impacted. The areas for language comprehension and production, attention, executive functioning, cognitive processing (verbal and/or mathematical), writing and speech prosody are most impacted for children with learning disabilities. Learning involves many, many areas of the brain working in concert. Many times communication between brain areas is weakened when a child suffers from a multi-modal learning disability. When the brain is regulated and the areas are strengthened to perform better and communication between brain areas is improved, symptoms of learning disabilities disappear.
Our drug-free, state-of-the-art, approach regulates the neurological patterns within the brain thus improving your child’s ability to succeed in the classroom and beyond.
