  • 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.

From a Remedial School to Mainstream: Kallyn Merckel’s Story
Kallyn joined Orban School in 2004. As any mom, I had high expectations for my son starting at a new school. But things didn’t turn out quite the way I had hoped. Kallyn’s teacher called me in to talk about Kallyn’s school work. She showed me his drawings compared with that of his classmates. I was worried. It looked more like scribbles with no meaning.

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.
