Customized Cognitive Skills Training
We want each individual to reach their fullest learning potential.
The SOI assessment provides a clear profile of the whole individual and illuminates deficits so they can be targeted for improvement.
By developing each individual in all three learning styles – Figural, Symbolic, and seMantic, we equip them to be successful to handle any learning challenges they encounter in school, work, and life.
We design a comprehensive, personalized cognitive skills training program to strengthen each individual’s specific learning abilities based on SOI assessments.
Our training programs train in any or all of these key areas:
- Problem Solving
Through this unique, targeted approach, your student will experience:
- Strengthened Skills
- Increased Proficiency
- Renewed Confidence
All while discovering a new path to success!
There are 90 specific learning abilities that can be trained with SOI-based programs. Some relate to reading, some relate to math and others relate to the vision and many more. Low abilities can be improved and strong abilities can be further
Our Educational Instruction is systematic, explicit, sequential, and structured, with a focus on the following areas:
Reading & Spelling
EmpowerKidz offers individualized & small group instruction for students experiencing language-related difficulties using an Orton-Gillingham or Structured Literacy approach, which provides the multi-sensory and systematic foundational skills necessary to enable confident reading and spelling. Orton-Gillingham has been shown through research to be highly effective for students with language-based learning difficulties, such as dyslexia. Prior to starting an O-G program, it is often necessary to first build a strong phonemic awareness of our language, using highly specialized programs to help students develop these critical pre-reading skills.
Math & Writing
When teaching math to young children, we use an approach that follows Orton-Gillingham methodology, Math-U-See, which focuses on concretely building the concepts of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers and fractions, telling time and understanding money through the use of manipulatives.
