Learning Struggles Can Be A Matter of Development


Neuro-Developmental Screenings are a very quick snapshot of the current functional abilities of your child.  A Neuro-Educational Specialist will observe your child doing cognitive, physical, and sensory activities (parents are welcome to sit in on a screening because they can learn , as well, a new base of knowledge and techniques that they can apply to help understand ques and clues about learning issues.

Individuals can gain an understanding of themselves or their child through a screening. We are shifting the focus from looking at the symptoms to looking at root causes and learning why those symptoms are occurring. It is in finding the cause that the remedy becomes clear. Typically it’s a simple matter of development.

Little Giant Steps has many resources on our website. You can even attend our webinars for free!  Most parents are unaware of the positive significant impact they can have on their child’s learning abilities! Also, check out the right sidebar on our home page and discover other important free services.

If you wonder why your child has difficulty: following directions, remembering what they’ve learned from one day to the next, struggles with new concepts, is disorganized in their thinking or physical maintenance; we have over twenty years experience in working with families in bringing The Neuro-Developmental Approach into your lives where you can see significant change, functional abilities develop, and a happier, more self-confident child emerge.  It is truly a life-changing program that can bring children, teens, and adults into their fullest God-given potential.

The Joy of Walking With God’s Children

LGSLogo1Little Giant Steps is so blessed to be at Teach Them Diligently! Dr. Jan Bedell and our staff are excited to serve the families in Nashville this week, in Atlanta April 28th, and Sandusky May 28th! Many captives who struggle with learning can be set free!  That’s the good news we bring.

It is in God’s design for us to teach parents how to create or restore efficient neuro-pathways in the brain is quite possible and highly successful. The brain training techniques we bring results in greater brain organization, comprehension, reduction in frustration, increase in abilities to hear or see and retain information, and a better comprehension and know the satisfaction of the multitude of experiences life brings to each person (regardless of age, I.Q., gifted, typical, or challenged)! By the way, the efficiency gained lasts a lifetime!

The symptoms of not being able to stay on task, follow directions, being disorganized and confused, unable to recall information from one day to the next do not have to be a lifetime struggle in the learning process. When simple brain training activities are done twice a day, for two minutes, for several months, the plasticity of the brain (God’s magnificent feature for change) begins to build new connections. It results in a re-wiring process. These connections are developmentally correct, as our Neuro-Developmental Approach is based on scientific tests, practice, and success for the past 40 plus years. Now with the imaging abilities of our radiological technologies our methods are proven and predictably correct! Every living person can benefit from the brain training we offer. Come learn about it this week at the convention and help restore, enhance, or improve your child’s academic performance, self-confidence, and satisfaction in learning!  Oh….and if you take advantage of these activities, you too, will gain in abilities, as well!

It’s a New Year! Let’s start Fresh!

doubt-femaleIt’s a New Year! Let’s start Fresh!

Have you ever asked yourself these questions?

Why is reading, spelling or math so difficult for my child? Why do they seem to know something one day and not the next? Why are they so disorganized? Why does it seem to take so long to teach him? I wonder if my child has something called Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, Low Auditory Processing Disorder, or something else? Does my child have something like Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome? Why is she struggling so much with reading comprehension? Something is just not right! Why is my bright child struggling to learn? If you have asked some of these questions, you are not alone… These are all signs of a weak foundation.

One thing that’s always needed in our educational development is to read, comprehend details, and have the ability to recall the information later.  Dr. Jan Bedell, a neuro-educational /developmental specialist has long seen the carnage that occurs when a child can’t read.  It’s like the whole train (educationally) runs off the track. One determining factor is that typically everyone, including the child, is unhappy with the circumstances.
