How can I help my child learn and remember vowel sounds?

Because words are made of sounds, and every syllable of every word contains a vowel, helping children learn vowels so they can remember is critical in helping a child be successful in reading. The answer for those children who have trouble with vowels and other letter sounds is to use a right-brained delivery method! If you embed the letters in a picture that is the same shape as the letter and also starts with the sound of the letter, children will be able to use their amazing mental camera and their natural ability to remember visuals permanently. We have done this for you. Go there now!


Why is learning sight words important, and how can I help my child learn and remember them?

Sight words make up 80-90% of the words children will see in text, and if your child can recognize sight words instantly, reading will be easy. Most children who struggle to learn sight words are right-brain learners who can’t memorize words. Drilling will not help! Your child needs right-brained sight words embedded in visuals. SnapWords® are learned as quickly as a mental camera snapping a picture and storing it in long term memory. Because the picture shows the meaning of the word, comprehension follows. The body motion will make it easy for your kinesthetic learner to remember sight words. Get SnapWords!


My child is struggling with learning math facts – how can I help?

Children need to be fluent with math facts for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division – as all higher level math comes out of this foundation. Most children who struggle to learn math facts are right-brain learners who don’t learn through memorization and drill. They need to understand what is happening in the problem, need to visualize the problem, and they need right-brained elements for learning including color-coding, pattern discovery, hands-on practice, story, visuals, and body movement. We have designed these right-brained resources for you. Get started today!


Where can I find tools that will support my struggling reader?

Areas of difficulty in reading include awareness of sounds in words, sounding out words, phonics rules, vocabulary, reading fluency, and comprehension. Most children who struggle with reading are right-brain learners who don’t learn the way we normally teach reading. Right-brain learners learn visually and tactilely, when they see the big picture, when they can learn whole words first, when they can discover patterns that exist in words, etc. The world of reading will open up for your struggling reader when you use resources that are designed especially with the right-brained learner in mind. Start today! 


How do I know if my child is a right-brain learner?

50-60% of students are right-brain learners, but traditional teaching resources are designed for left-brain dominant learners. If your child is struggling to learn, the first thing to do is try a right-brain resource to gauge its effectiveness. Right-brain learners include all children before the age of 7, those who are kinesthetic, visual, dyslexic, autistic, those with auditory processing disorder and so forth. When a child struggles and is tested, the learning weakness is identified and a label is assigned. If a child has the opportunity to learn from his strengths, often the label will never be assigned.
