Don’t let your child continue to struggle with academics

October 28th, 2013

It’s early on in the school year and things seem to be progressing well at school, then all of a sudden it happens. You start to see signs of academic struggles at home, and your child’s teachers notice his/her difficulty with reading, comprehension, writing or math.

Their teachers talk about your child’s lack of attention, difficulty with speed, or remembering information. You’re worried that at the next parent teacher conference they may suggest your child has ADHD and may recommend seeing a doctor for medication (or you need to adjust your child’s medication). What may appear to be symptoms of attention deficit disorder may actually be an issue with your child’s fluency, and this impacts all areas of your child’s life.

If your child, or the children you work with, are struggling with academics then you will want to attend the guest expert call “How to get fluency: Helping kids who struggle with reading, writing, and math” an interview with guest expert, Amy Weinberger.  Amy will be sharing this valuable information with the International Parents and Professionals Community, tomorrow, Tuesday, October 29th.

If you know a child who seems easily distracted, their timing if off, or they take forever to eat their food or tie their shoe, then you may be wondering if they are being willfully disobedient and just trying to push your buttons? They may be smart, but they seem to struggle with everything; if so they may have an issue with fluency, and it impacts everything!
For over 20 years Amy Weinberger, the founder of the Thinking Center, has been providing reading, cognitive and fluency training, as well as, educational consulting to families experiencing educational crises for students in grades K-12 and beyond.
On this call you will learn:

  • What is fluency and how does it affect learning
  • What is the difference between an independent and dependent learner and how to help prepare your child become an independent learner
  • What is automaticity and executive function and control and why you need to know this to help your child succeed with academics
  • The importance of automating phonological processes, math fact retrieval, and handwriting to create success in the classroom at any level
  • What’s a self-distracted learner and how to create Neural Networks for the classroom and at home
