Speciality Programs

A screening can help determine a student’s strengths, weaknesses and academic level. This can include academic testing or screenings for weaknesses in visual perception, auditory processing or ADHD. Call and schedule a consultation today at (773) 238-4526 to find out what programs would best suit your child’s needs.

AMPS (Attention, Memory, Processing Skills)

The AMPS program is a cognitive brain training program based on proven ideas from the fields of behavioral optometry and cognitive neuroscience. It consists of a number of brain exercises designed to improve mental processing speed, working memory, attention, sequential processing, spatial orientation, visual and auditory memory, phonological awareness, motor planning, problem solving, and reasoning. All the work is done one-on-one with a clinician.

Wilson Reading Program

This program teaches reading and spelling skills from the ground up. Students of all ages who are struggling with reading can benefit from this program. In addition to promoting strong reading skills, this program also addresses reading fluency.

The Wilson Reading program is designed to promote reading accuracy (decoding) and spelling (encoding) skills for students with word-level deficits. The program is designed to teach phonemic awareness, alphabetic principles (sound-symbol relationship), word study, spelling, sight word instruction, fluency, vocabulary, oral expressive language development, and comprehension.

Neurofeedback

For ages 3 to adult. Neurofeedback addresses issues such as (but not limited to) ADHD, anxiety-depression, behavior disorders, headaches, seizure disorder, autism, aspergers and sensory integration.

This is a therapy technique that presents the user with real-time feedback on brainwave activity. Brainwave activity is measured by sensors on the scalp, typically in the form of a video display, sound or vibration. The aim is to provide real-time information to the Central Nervous System (CNS) as to its current activity. For more information, visit their website online here. (We have a licensed therapist who can bill insurance.)

In Time

InTime supports social & emotional function, auditory processing, communication, executive function, creative expression, motor coordination, stress response, self-awareness, musicality, and more. The client engages with the rhythm-based music of InTime to help stimulate rhythm awareness, focus, timing precision and adaptive responses to stress, all of which supply your brain with the highest quality of stimulation it needs for optimal function.

The Listening Program

A music-based auditory stimulation method, use to enable individuals with a broad range of challenges and abilities to achieve even more. When auditory perception is distorted—whether through illness, injury, developmental or other challenges—auditory processing problems can lead to academic, emotional, cognitive and social challenges, including problems with the following:

  • Attention and concentration
  • Listening
  • Speech and language
  • Memory
  • Communication
  • Social skills
  • Reading
  • Sensory integration
  • Self regulation
  • Physical balance and coordination
  • Vocal performance and musical ability

Auditory Processing problems are also common in people with dyslexia, learning disabilities, AD/HD and autism spectrum disorders.

Whether you are interested in improving brain health for longevity, expanding your own abilities or helping someone you care about, TLP can make a significant difference.

With the guidance of a TLP Provider, The Listening Program is an easy-to-use, cost effective, portable method that can bring about lasting change. For more information, visit their website online here

Visualizing/Verbalizing

Lindamood-bell Program for students of all ages struggling with reading comprehension. Does your student have difficulties with:

  • Reading Comprehension
  • They have to reread material several times and often remember only a few details, rather than the “whole.”
  • Oral Language Expression
  • They may seem shy and have difficulty organizing their language…or they may be talkative but scattered, relating information out of sequence.
  • Written Language Skills

On Their writing is often described as unorganized and nonspecific.

Visualizing and Verbalizing successfully stimulates concept imagery. This improves their language comprehension, reasoning for critical thinking, and expressive language skills. It is common for individuals to gain years in language comprehension in four weeks of intensive instruction. For more information, visit their website here

On Cloud Nine

A Lindamood-Bell Program for grammar school students struggling with basic math skills. A primary cause of math difficulties is an inability to image and verbalize the concepts underlying math processes. Individuals attempt to memorize facts instead of being able to think, reason, and problem solve with numbers.

Does your student have these difficulties?

  • Learning math facts such as multiplication tables
  • Grasping mathematical relationships
  • Doing word problems
  • Challenges with higher math

Solution

The On Cloud Nine successfully stimulates the ability to image and verbalize the concepts underlying math processes. Concept and Numeral imagery are integrated with language and applied to math computation and problem solving. There is emphasis on both mathematical reasoning and mathematical computation. Individuals of all ages learn to do and enjoy math.
