To learn anything, you need:
To concentrate, filter out distractions, and focus on a particular task for longer.
To grasp information and recall it confidently when needed.
To push through the
discomfort of learning,
increase perseverance and build skills for life.
To listen, read, speak and
write. To improve academic skills as well as social outcomes..
But some of us just don't have those skills - yet.
And even with speech therapy and/or tutoring,
many still struggle to learn.
Taking a toll on academic and social progress.
It also affects mental health.
Huh? What? Have you heard about
Auditory Processing Disorder?
Auditory processing disorder (APD) is behind
many learning challenges.
People with APD can hear, but their brain doesn't process sound
fast enough, so they may not understand everything you say.
It also affects their ability to read and comprehend.
When learning, children with auditory processing disorder ask
"what?" or "huh?" a lot. They
can't remember instructions
have trouble learning to read and comprehend
have difficulty with the rhythm and timing of jokes, poetry and social banter
may not remember how to spell
may not pay attention
can fall behind their peers as school work gets harder
may find ways to avoid classes or school
may be excluded, teased or bullied
can mix up the sequence of letters and words
Modern brain research can help.
Brain research into learning and reading challenges really took off in the 1990s due to advancements in brain imaging, like fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging). Educational neuroscience is now a scientific field that brings together neuroscientists, cognitive psychologists, educators and linguists.
They have discovered that the brain, at any age, is more like a muscle.
And if you exercise it in the right way, the pathways in your brain for learning
can become better connected, allowing the electrical signals of
information to travel faster and more effectively.

"Monique's coaching was so helpful. She knew when to encourage me and when to challenge me. She even knew when to make me laugh. My journey is not the easiest one, but Monique helped me to see the positives and keep going. I thank God I found her."

"He’s more self aware, more confident in himself, more determined to get his homework done straight away.
I’m so glad I found this programme, it was money well spent!"
"Not only has he been able to keep up across all areas academically, he has also gained confidence and now enjoys the learning process. It makes our heart sing to watch my son literally jump with joy as he is dropped off at school every morning."
