A Parent Discovered Simple, Effective Tools

1-kidsHappyThere Is So Much You Can Do

Here’s a mom who wanted to let you know what works! Be sure and check out the side bar on the home page for many free services to help you discover how your child is functioning, and many tips – even a free review of a survey by a Neuro-educational Specialist with recommendations.

“I have a praise. My six year-old son was evaluated at the beginning of October. He was stuck at 3 auditory. [That means he could only retain 3 numbers (digits) and repeat them back to her after hearing them in a prescribed sequence. Children should be able to process the same number of digits as their age up to age 7]. My ND showed us how to bridge to 4′s. Last week Vince was consistentlyDigit Span Cards doing 4′s!!

I was originally going to make my own digit span cards, and it never got done. So, I bought some (Digit Span Cards) from Little Giant Steps. (These are cards you practice and play games for 2 minutes, twice a day.)Digit Span Cards

I bought some digit span cards. I love them. It is so much easier to get things done when everything is right there and done for you.  (Editors note:  We suggest you order a Free Test Kit to establish the current functional level of your child’s auditory and visual processing abilities. All directions are included with our products)

I bought the whisper phone- love it. My son is now saying Vincent instead of Sincent. I have also been using it with my other kids. My 8 year-old had a hard time saving virgins (a bible quiz answer). Immediately he could say it correctly. Also, my almost 3 year-old has been using it.

The service was very quick. I received my order in just a few days. (Thanks Jan) P.S. Don’t forget there are a world of free information offered on their website, too!” ~ investigate, educate and bring your struggling child into his/her real potential!

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!
