TTD-Sand Little Giant Steps (LGS) will be participating in Teach Them Diligently Convention May 28 -30th in Sandusky, OH. [Booth #412-414]. Our sister non-profit agency, Steps Of Hope, will be in attendance, as well. [Booth #416].  All this preparation will soon be repeated at the Dallas Teach Them Diligently Convention on July 16-18th! We are excited to be at these venues to share our ministry in a God-driven environment of celebrating family, home school, and living as a disciple of Christ! LGS is a faith-based neuro-educational/developmental group devoted to helping each individual with learning issues, labels, or disabilities discover the key to reaching their God-given potential through the Neuro-Developmental Approach – a time tested, drug-free, natural brain training program that helps the brain to change regardless of age or I.Q.  We fix functional abilities, thus learning becomes easier as the brain begins to be able to work efficiently. You could say we fix those developmental gaps, or provide needed repair when there has been an interruption of vital developmental steps. We provide activities (cognitive and physical) that helps the brain to generate neuro-connections so learning can become easier and memory retention greatly improves. After all, the biggest “learning organ” in our bodies is our brain!


cope-compLittle Giant Steps is a Neuro-Educational/Developmental Consulting Group. We work with people of all ages to fix functional learning issues through the use of Brain Training – The Neuro-Developmental Approach.

Today I happened across an article written by a woman who indicated she struggled with ADHD (Inattentive ADHD).  She described how she lost her car in a parking garage while taking her sons on a historical tour in an unfamiliar city. She mentioned the panic both she and her children experienced.  Many parking garages owned by  the same company!  Her solution for future outings was to use the GPS locator on her phone so this would not happen to her again. She stated her children have had to remind her to lock in the coordinates already.

I am so glad she found a way to cope and compensate for this problem.  But, my heart really cried out and wanted her to know there is a better solution!  Over the last twenty years Little Giant Steps (LGS) has been working with clients to eliminate the symptoms of many learning issues, syndromes, and disabilities.  How? You ask?  With Individual Brain Training based on the results 0f Neuro-Developmental Evaluation and Academic Testing. The most wonderful feature of the brain is plasticity!  That means the brain can change. Through our programs we create a profile of areas of the brain that are either under-developed, in need of repair, or just not functioning up the age or grade level. We then write a program of activities (cognitive and physical movements) that will impact those specific areas of the brain via specific techniques to change the brain and bring into being the functional abilities.  When connections are re-wired the symptoms of the disorder typically simply go away. It doesn’t matter what age you are or your I.Q.  Everything improves when there is Neuro-efficiency ~ functional abilities operating efficiently and effectively.  So, in many ways we are a paradigm shift for many people with learning disabilities, syndromes, etc.  We do not promote coping and compensating, because we know Brain Training can “fix” those areas so the individual can then function like the majority of normal well developed organized people.

Each one of us at LGS are passionate about this approach, because each one of us have seen the impact in our own children’s lives. My son was gifted, but dysgraphia and dyslexia was disabling to his performance both in school and sports. That was not the case after he finished his Neuro-Developmental Program. The dyslexia went away, the dysgraphia, the poor fine and  gross motor skills disappeared.  Today, he’s a very confident, professional (DDS)  who does advanced dental procedures in his dental practice.  The founder of Little Giant Steps discovered the Neuro-Developmental (ND) Approach for her mentally challenged daughter, who still couldn’t read by age 15.  Dr. Jan Bedell, at the time was a teacher, and she just knew there was greater potential in her daughter. She just didn’t know how she might reach it, so she quit teaching and went home to home school her. Then Jan stumbled across the ND Approach!  When she saw her daughter after a few short weeks on program being able to “perfectly fold towels” (which had never happened before), and she witnessed her new ability to think in an organized manner, and began to comprehend and retain her “reading and math” ~ her mother immediately enrolled in the long training courses to become a Neurodevelopmentalist. Today, LGS provides professional training for those professionals/parents who learn how to screen, evaluate, and train families in the techniques, programs, and the fine art of Brain Training.  In fact, Dr. Bedell is known as the Brain Coach! For more instances of these unique, yet common successes; I would encourage you to follow this link, so you might understand the depth and breath of the ND Approach.

My heart cries out, “Don’t settle for coping and compensating!”  There is a path available to become whole in functional abilities, which means becoming successful in academic, social, and general life pursuits!  We can end daily struggles and frustrations of learning disabilities and issues. We at LGS have been there and done it – so can you!
