Learning Disabilities (LD)

Learning to succeed!

Children with learning disabilities (LD) can present a variety of challenges for parents and educators. Untreated, these children may also face difficult and unique challenges that are pervasive throughout life. Learning disabilities affect all areas of academia, speech and language. LD can lead to:

  • Difficulty following directions
  • Trouble learning new information
  • Poor memory
  • Trouble focusing
  • Difficulty with reading and math
  • Poor handwriting

Fortunately, although the symptoms may vary, the cause is the same…timing. The domain-general mechanism of timing is a “jack of all trades” mechanism that manifests itself in sleep cycles, speech patterns, ability to attend over time and overall efficacy of brain communication. This timing in the brain, or temporal processing, has been shown to be deficient in several common conditions, including everything from mild learning disability to severe autism spectrum disorder. IM is the only training program that improves timing in the brain in an organized, systematic, flexible and engaging format.

In fact, a study from Baylor University reveals that students who received just

15 minutes of IM training, four days a week in addition to language and reading intervention, demonstrated significant improvement in reading rate, fluency and comprehension over students who just received language and reading instruction.”
