Learning Breakthrough was developed to address foundational brain processing and strengthen the weak cognitive skills of students who are not meeting the demands of classroom work or adults that have struggled with learning challenges (or are involved in TBI or stroke rehabilitation) as well as those working to reduce the natural cognitive declines experienced as they age. The recommended starting age for the program is six (6) years old and challenges such as Dyslexia and ADD/ADHD (attention deficit), Dyspraxia and Auditory Processing Disorder are among the range of classic diagnoses that therapists and physicians have used Learning Breakthrough to address for three decades.
Learning Breakthrough activities are physical, balance and sensory integration exercises that improve cognitive and literacy ability as well as motor skills and dexterity. This integrated approach is used to strengthen underlying brain processing skills necessary for simple, efficient resolution of the following problems:
Poor or sloppy handwriting
Below average academic achievement
Inadequate verbal fluency
Inability to pay attention and stay focused
Poor memory and comprehension
Poor athletic performance
Difficulty following instructions
Low self esteem
Learning Breakthrough sessions are performed at home and become part of each client's daily routine. Daily program use along with the precision of the equipment and movement exercises is what delivers benefits to each user.
Program attributes include:
Vestibular challenge and development - precise and individual adjustability enable calibration by all of the body's sensory processing centers.
Sensory motor work - bean bags, eye-tracking exercises, pendulum ball routines, super ball tossback skills, fina and gross motor skills development and refinement and thorough sensory integration work sessions.
Grapho-motor - handwriting, drawing, writing, and fine motor "eye-hand" skills
Auditory training - analysis, segment work, blending with decoding and spelling issues, auditory reception difficulties, auditory expressive issues and lingual motor control integration.
Visual Processing skills - training and development through each activity segment.
Attention, focus, and concentration training—focus is on divided attention, sustained attention, and increasing frustration tolerance.
Memory training—call, recall, assessment, evaluation, validation and finally: calibration.
Neurofeedback and proprioceptive feedback - self-regulated motor control processes are refined through iterative work with specialized equipment referencing the common sensory input of gravity.
Logic and reasoning—skills improvement in seeing patterns and sequential processing challenges are developed in a critical sensory mapping model of the physical space in which our senses operate.
