My daughter has struggled with learning since she came home. I’ve been homeschooling her and have tried just about every curriculum I could find to help her with little progress. She and I were staying very frustrated. With the help from an assessment at the learning center and my own research we found she has an auditory processing disorder. This was not only affecting her learning in school but all aspects of life. I began researching how best I could get her to learn and found Brain Integration Therapy and Teaching the Right Brain. Today I started this with her and within 10 minutes of doing this new technique…This non reader read a small book with very little help. She was so excited she jumped out of her chair and started screaming and dancing!!! She CAN learn!!! Dianne Craft THANK GOD for you and for not giving up on kids! We have went from tears of frustration to tears of joy!!! She just told me “I can’t stop thinking about school, I can’t wait for tomorrow!!!” What?!? Thank you Jesus for leading me to this therapy for her! She’s finally reading and she couldn’t be happier!!
Oh MY!!!!! First off, I’m working with a child who is missing the left half her brain. I wasn’t sure how well this program would work. She has a severe auditory block. Couldn’t repeat a 4-word sentence. Her reading comprehension was non-existent. We’ve been doing the program about 3 weeks. At first, she couldn’t do a single ear-eight, especially on her right side. Today, she did the whole regime on both sides. Then, as we read, she was able to tell me what she was reading and make extensions to other things she knows. I am in tears!
I am so excited! I actually cried those happy “BIT works yeah” kinda tears today! C showed me her English school exercise today. Not only was it very well written as in graphically very legible but it was well thought through and it was ON PAPER! She has some spelling mistakes, yes but she wrote a whole page in school without my help out of her own head. WOW, just WOW and Thank you
Dianne so so so so much. I can’t even express my feelings adequately. This is from a girl who would last year around the same time barely write half a page never mind two years ago have just the title, saying: “Mom I did mot know what to write. ”
I attended a Struggling Learner Seminar by Dianne Craft for some insight on how to help my sweet SL. She didn’t just open a door to the road to improvement, she knocked down a wall in my thinking. I can’t wait to try the stuff I learned. Thank you Dianne!
Michael actually asked to do reading today! Epic moment! Thank you Dianne Craft for your right brain phonics reading program. I think I’m going to cry!
Dianne I just finished listening to your Biology in Behavior CD and WOW I wish I would have discovered this information YEARS ago! I have started my kiddos on some of the supplements and can indeed see wonderful results in [especially] my oldest daughter, she was talking a Ritalin like medication that just wasn’t do much good – we have since stopped taking the proscription medicine and she began using a few of the supplements…evening primrose, 5HTP, and one other – I can’t remember which…but as I listened to the CD it really looks like I should take some of these with her! Now I really wish we could have chatted @ the CHAP convention whe you were here! I have so much to learn and don’t know if I have the brain cells to retain it!
Today I am thankful for Dianne Craft. Before I heard of her, my little boy Jason could hardly read anything, struggled in school, couldn’t remember sight words and sounded everything out. A year later he is reading fluently and making tremendous progress. Thank God for the right brain strategies, the Right Brain Phonics Book, the Biology of Behavior CD set, I could go on and on. They work!
I want to share a win! I started using these methods with my daughter in March (age 6 at the time, 7 now). Today I assigned a simple report on an animal as part of her geography studies on grasslands. If I had assigned this in the Spring it would have resulted in tears, even if I had only asked for a single sentence and spelled each word for her as she went. Today she wrote three sentences on her own quite happily and has gained so much confidence! I can’t express how incredibly grateful I am for this program!
I have been absorbing all the fantastic “Struggling Learner” information from Dianne Craft that I received to the AFHE Conference. This is the third time I’ve sat in on her teaching. WHAT A BLESSING! Her information on the biology of the brain and tools to support and build up skills is awesome. I was reminded of how far the girls really have come in the last 4 years using her Brain Integration Therapy and Right Brain strategies for reading and math. I am inspired and encouraged.
This week has been a week of great progress that I know you will all understand. My son just turned 7. In September, he could not recall most letters of the alphabet or their sounds. He is great at memorizing as he has the BOB books memorized however, he could not recall alphabet names or sounds. We have been doing Brain Integration Therapy from the beginning, so we are on the writing gate and my son can now recall the letter name of every letter of the alphabet, recall every sound and can put 3 letter sounds together to form words. HE IS READING!! I am so happy for my little guy.
