3 Things You Need To Know...

Cognitive skills are the thinking or learning skills that allow your child to be successful academically. Cognitive skills are directly related to your child's grades.

If 1 or more cognitive skill is weak, learning will be frustrating, inconsistent, and overall just not very much fun.

Cognitive skills can be trained and improved.

Yep. It's that simple.

Teachers teach information; tutors re-teach information, but poor instruction is not the cause of most learning issues. A student who chronically struggles does not need to be re-taught information; a student who struggles year after year needs a solution that goes deeper.

Most chronic academic struggles for neuro-typical students are caused by deficient cognitive skills. Cognitive skills are the thinking skills that allow someone to be a good learner & successful in school and in life.
