Attention, Balance and Coordination - The Foundation of all Learning.
Just as child development is orderly and strategic, so is cognitive development. Most children who have experienced developmental delay / neurological dysfunction are usually behind in one or more academic subjects.
As they complete NDD Therapy and a Listening Fitness Program, if it is needed, we introduce our tutoring curriculum. Any follow-up curriculum to the Listening Fitness Program that addresses reading, writing and spelling must be thoroughly immersed in the use of sounds to be effective. That is why we use Anna's Sound Bits a curriculum designed and put together by Anna Buck - one of the leading experts on NDD therapy.
Anna’s Sound Bits curriculum developed by Anna R Buck is based on normal developmental growth. Many children that have experienced developmental delays try to read visually or through context reading. When they work through NDD therapy and listening therapy, they begin to hear and discriminate between sounds correctly, for some, for the first time, this opens the door to reading readiness.
These children need to be taught how to apply listening to academic learning. While they now have the ability to listen and process sounds correctly, they need training on how to intentionally apply auditory processing to reading and spelling, so they don't revert to old familiar habits of using only the visual system. Anna’s Sound Bits teaches spelling, reading, and writing from that foundation, and children learn through sound.
