Quotes

"Training teachers and parents of children with learning challenges form an essential part of remedial therapies, together with a thorough assessment of the causes of the difficulties and the development of an individualized scientifically based intervention program. The workshop conducted by the two renowned experts presents an excellent opportunity for parents and teachers to gain an insight into th nature of this intervention, thus enabling them to become an important contributor to the child's successful mastery of their challenges" said Rudolf Stockling MSc (Psych), Clinical Director, Lexicon Reading Center
"The course makes you go back to basics and rethink the way you teach maths," says Rayner.

The course showed that getting those building blocks right is the key to unlocking maths for children with dyscalculia."
"During the study, we found that learning disability shows up significantly among students in Class 4. This may be because they are incorpo rating grammar elements while learning to write sentences" Dr Virudhagirinathan said. The children were subject to the Help Child Learning Disability Screening Test, which lasts for around one hour
