October 2010 Schoolhouse Expo- Dianne Craft
It doesn’t have to be so hard for your child! You can become your child’s own therapist, once you know where the problem is, and the solutions. Join Dianne Craft in a Homeschool workshop, and start learning!
This is for your ‘puzzling child’. The child may be identified with a frank learning disability, or just be a Struggling Learner. The definition of a Struggling Learner is a bright, hard working child who has to work too hard to learn. I call them blocked learning gates. Dr. Mel Levine calls them “energy leaks”. Let’s find out what process is taking too much of your child’s battery energy. Learn the difference between a child who has a learning glitch, and one who has a focusing/attention glitch. Sometimes these children are considered, “sloppy, lazy or unmotivated”, when they really have an undiagnosed blocked learning gate. This workshop will help you identify which of the learning gates is blocked, and, more importantly, what you can do about it at home! It doesn’t have to be so hard for your child! You can learn to be your child’s own ‘resource room’ teacher at home. If you have had your child tested, and received a diagnosis, but still don’t know what to do to help him at home, you will love what you learn in this workshop. If you have not had your child tested, but suspect a learning glitch because of the amount of work it takes to learn, you will learn how to teach him at home. You can become your child’s own therapist, once you know where the problem is, and the solutions. You will learn things you never heard of before in a Homeschool workshop.
