- Learning Style Suite: includes our Learning Styles and Multiple Intelligences evaluation. Cost: $30
- Learning Styles include Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic (learning through action), and Reading/Writing
- We look at which style or combination of styles your student learns best from, and give strategies based around their best mode of learning.
- Multiple Intelligences are Nature, Language, Music, Body, Math/Logical, Visual/Spatial, Interpersonal (Social), and Intrapersonal (Self)
- The evaluation looks at where the students preferences and interests lie. This can tell a lot about how they most effectively take in new material. Our strategies reflect ways to present information that will keep them interested and help them process better.
- Motivation Style Suite: includes our Motivation, Hope, and Introvert/Extrovert evaluation. Cost: $30
- Its time to look at what really motivates your student. What motivates each of us is different. There are 8 Main Motivation Types that influence the kinds of things your student is most attracted to: Gregariousness, Autonomy, Status, Inquisitiveness, Aggression (Leadership), Power, Recognition, and Affiliation.
- These combined with Motivation Forces, i.e. the things that you can give your student in order to keep them motivated, can be very powerful in helping your student stay on track. Some common motivation forces, are projects, praise, prizes, people, prestige, and power.
- Another factor in how much effort your student will put into things is their Hope. There is new theory in education called “Hope Theory”. Studies show that one of the most influential aspects of whether a student will succeed or fail at a task is their hope level in being able to achieve what they set out to do. Once you know where there level of hope is on certain tasks you can help increase their hope in the areas they are struggling with.
- Don’t discount how important being an introvert or extrovert is in motivation. There are many different types and combinations of introverts and extroverts. Knowing where your student fits in is essential to putting them in the social situations most conducive to their learning and success.
- Neurodevelopmental Function Suite: includes an assessment of Attention, Memory, Language, Temporal Sequential, Spatial, and more. Cost: $60
- All brains work in a combination of different ways. Each of the main Neurodevelopmental Functions can be broken down into smaller components. You can be strong in every area of a Function except one and that will cause learning struggles. Often times these are disguised in what people term being “lazy”, or just not trying hard enough.
- Our evaluation will look at each separate piece and figure out where your student’s strengths and weaknesses lie.
- We look at Attention, Memory, Language, Temporal Sequential Ordering, Spatial Ordering, Social Cognition, Neuromotor Function, and Higher Order Cognition. We give you a profile of where your student is and an explanation on what each of these areas mean.
- The strategies target the weaker areas, by using the strong areas to improve them.
- Reading and Math Evaluations: Includes a 45 min. session with a trained evaluator to look at the area of concern. We spot any specific areas of strength, and areas of struggle. We add further value to the profile and provide additional strategies to target areas of concern. Cost $50 each
- There are many common areas of difficulty in reading from reading comprehension, to writing struggles, to trouble with phonics.
- For Math it can be struggles with basic arithmetic, word problems, thinking algebraically, or spatial trouble.
- We look at your students memory, processing, and more for each area of concern.
- We use what we see to give you an in depth report that you can use to implement strategies on your own. You can also take it to school personnel and/or your doctor to help target areas you want looked at further if there is a learning disability concern.
