WHAT IS AN IPP AND HOW CAN IT HELP MY CHILD?

If your child is having difficulty in school or has been diagnosed with a learning disability, IPP (Integrated Practice Protocol) offers an effective, compelling, and sound solution that meets a disability at its source. The IPP system is successful because it treats the causes of learning disability.

Contrast the IPP approach with tutoring. Tutoring is a remedy for inappropriate or ineffective teaching, because tutoring is, by definition, individualized teaching. Good tutoring may “teach around” a disability, but it probably will not cure the learning problem.

Contrast the IPP approach with Special Education. Special Education uses instructional methods that are different from the regular classroom—less demanding, to “compensate” for the learning disability. These are not learning therapies. For Special Education, learning disabilities are a given which call for a “special” type of education. This means that the learning disability is acknowledged and dealt with as a disability—but not cured.

IPP looks for the causes of a learning disability and seeks a cure.

Therapy – Not Instruction

One of the first things you will notice as a client is that IPP is not instructional. You are a client. This is not school or college or training. This is Learning Therapy.

There are many situations where an IPP center could be helpful:

  • Being identified as learning disabled due to falling behind more than 2 years of achievement.
  • A non-reader even after exposure to reading instruction.
  • College athletes ineligible to participate with inadequate grades.
  • Being “Unpromotable” because you cannot qualify, or are not eligible for advancements.
  • You have started learning but have fallen behind group instruction.
  • Student succeeding in school but not performing well enough to pursue long-range goals.


How EFFECTIVE is IPP?

The success rate is over 90%.

How EFFICIENT is IPP?

On average, clients are cured in less than 80 hours—about 16 weeks of prescribed therapy.

How ECONOMICAL is IPP?

IPP is designed to work within the various learning institutions. This makes IPP practical. Logistically, the service is where the clients are, so it is accessible. In terms of resources, the service is performed by in-house personnel—teachers, counselors, probation personnel, even volunteers—so it is affordable, especially in contrast to outside interventions.

IPP is ACCOUNTABLE

Every IPP Center reports on a monthly basis to SOI Systems. And, every six months, SOI Systems issues reports on the progress of all the IPP Centers.
