- Does your child have a learning difficulty?
- Is he struggling to reach his full potential?
- Is your child battling to concentrate, or is his memory poor?
- Does he read slowly and hesitantly, or with poor comprehension?
- Does he confuse letters like b and d?
- Does he spell words as they sound, for example “rite” for “right”?
- Has he been diagnosed with dyslexia, dysgraphia or ADHD?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above, your child probably lacks some of the tools required for learning.
We give the tools for learning!
When you have the right tools, any task will be accomplished with greater ease and efficiency. Imagine, for example, trying to mix cement with a spoon rather than a cement mixer. Imagine trying to mow the lawn with a pair of scissors!
Cognitive skills concentration, perception, memory and logical thinking are mental skills used in the process of acquiring knowledge, and can be considered your child’s tools for learning.
Research has shown that cognitive skills are a determining factor of an individual’s learning ability, according to Oxfordlearning.com the skills that “separate the good learners from the so-so learners.” In essence, when cognitive skills are strong, learning is fast and easy. When cognitive skills are weak, learning becomes a struggle.
The great news is that these weaknesses can be attacked head-on. Through dynamic training and practice cognitive skills can be improved, strengthened, and enhanced.
Edublox specializes in cognitive training that makes children smarter, and helps them learn and read faster. Our programs enable learners to overcome reading difficulties and other learning obstacles, assisting them to become life-long learners and empowering them to realize their highest educational goals.

Dealing with Dyslexia: Lizl’s Success Story
Unfortunately school in the 80’s was a nightmare for children with dyslexia. I was punished on a daily basis with a ruler on my hands for turning stuff around. Up to Grade 12 I was called to stand in front of the class, spelling words incorrectly on the blackboard for the class to laugh at. Thanks to supporting family and friends, it never got me down.

I would like to thank you and your teachers from the bottom of my heart for walking the extra mile with Chanté. Last year, when I went to meet with you, my shoulders were sagging under the heart-ache of not knowing what to do for my little girl. Her words were: “Mommy I can’t”, “Mommy I am stupid”. After your assessment I understood the problem, and we began with the lessons. Read more…

Edublox Research Study: Can Cervical Spinal Manipulations Accelerate Learning?
When Children Read Well, Yet Lack Comprehension
A common reading disorder goes undiagnosed until it becomes problematic, according to the results of a five-year study published online in the journal Brain Connectivity. Dyslexia, a reading disorder in which a child confuses letters and struggles with sounding out words, has been the focus of much research into reading. That is not the case, however, with the lesser known disorder Specific Reading Comprehension Deficits or S-RCD, in which a child reads successfully but does not sufficiently comprehend the meaning of the words.
