The Wilson Reading program is designed to promote reading accuracy (decoding) and spelling (encoding) skills for students with word-level deficits.

For ages 3 to adult. Neurofeedback is a type of therapy that helps the brain to function more efficiently. It can be highly effective for people who have ADHD, anxiety-depression, behavior disorders, headaches, seizure disorder, autism, Asperger’s, sensory integration, or other impediments to learning.
Neurofeedback provides real-time feedback on brainwave activity, measured by sensors on the scalp that are connected to a video display, sound, or vibration. It rewards the brain for changing its activity to more appropriate patterns.
Our Neurofeedback therapy program is provided through EEG Info. Please note that Connections Learning Center has a licensed therapist on site who can bill insurance for this specialty therapy program in Chicago.

The Listening Program
The Listening Program is a music-based therapy that can improve brain health. By listening to music that is acoustically modified to train the brain, students can strengthen neurological pathways and improve their ability to learn, communicate, and process information.
This therapy and custom-tailored tutoring are designed for anyone with an auditory processing issue. When auditory perception is distorted—through illness, injury, developmental or other challenges—it can lead to academic, emotional, cognitive and social challenges. The areas this therapy can address include:
- Attention and concentration
- Speech and language
- Self regulation
- Vocal performance and musical ability
- Social skills
- Sensory integration
- Physical balance and coordination
Auditory Processing problems are also common in people who have dyslexia, learning disabilities, ADHD and autism-spectrum disorders.
