To improve directional concepts Rhythmic Writing is educational therapy's back bone, it will help meet any or all of these goals.
1. To develop the ability to do 2 or more things at the same time.
2. To establish hemispheric specialization for language
3. To improve visual-motor integration (eye-hand coordination)
4. To improve directional concepts
5. To improve visual sequential memory
A student who has difficulty in the language area will benefit from developing one hemisphere of the brain to be the dominant hemisphere for language. (This dominant hemisphere is usually opposite of the child's dominant hand.) When a dominant hemisphere is established for specializing in language, the student becomes more organized in his/her thinking. Rhythmic Writing helps to develop hemispheric dominance.
In addition to developing a dominant hemisphere, it is also important for a student to integrate both hemispheres of the brain. Crossing the mid-line forces both hemispheres to be involved in the task and thus develops that integration.
The student's directionality concepts are strengthened as he/she does left/right counts.
We will also be combining penmanship with this class
We will be doing executive function exercise
FOR ALL AGES AND GRADES

Your child meets with Ginger Schollenberger on a weekly or biweekly basis for a range of activities that build thinking and learning skills.
Educational therapy can help with auditory processing, dysgraphia, dyslexia, language processing disorder, visual perceptual/visual motor deficit, memory, and executive functioning.
* Rhythmic writing helps both sides of the body talk to each other. It's great for improving handwriting, visual-motor skill, processing speed, and memory skills.
* Orton-Gillingham-based phonics instruction.
* Buzzer activities reinforce phonics instruction as well as strengthening auditory memory and processing skill.
* Dictation and copy work help the student apply phonics and punctuation skills.
* Various activities extend expressive language skills as well as grammar skills.
* Math activities relate language skills mathematical operations.
