By showing children how to learn using their visual memory, we teach them simple skills that will help them overcome their learning difficulties.
These new skills will assist children in:
Becoming fluent at reading and spelling through developing the skill to “see” words in your minds eye – a skill all good readers and spellers have naturally.
Improving concentration and motor skills through learning how to stabilise your visual memory.This can significantly benefit those learning Irish and foreign languages, plus better, comprehension and handwriting skills.
We offer a series of Pass Literacy On* sessions where a parent and child can learn these techniques in a safe and confidential environment. These are 1-1 sessions where the family members can benefit from individual specialist coaching.
We also deliver a Pass Literacy On Family Breakthrough Day which is a full day workshop for children and adults to learn these simple and highly effective techniques and practice them with their families. Each family can bring 2 children or alternatively a teacher may bring up to 2 students on the day. The Family Breakthrough Day allows parents and children to interact with other families who are experiencing similar challenges where everyone will learn new and easy to use skills in a supportive and inclusive environment.
Improve your spelling, reading and maths skills NOW. Book a 1-1 session by contacting Allen on 086 8058404 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org directly.
Here's some comments from parents and teachers we have worked with:
FEEDBACK FROM PARENTS:
“Many thanks to you for running the course and what an eye-opener! My daughter is still writing on her post-it notes and has then stuck all to the presses in the kitchen. She is delighted with herself and loves doing the 10 to 15 mins of fun/practice everyday. She has even has her 4 year old sister working on it too.“
“..a quick update on daughters’ progress. We had a parent teacher meeting today. Across the board, her teacher has noticed a big improvement. Spelling, maths, concentration and keeping up with her school work – it was so fantastic to hear!“
“Your course has boosted my little girl’s self-esteem no end. Learning is now a more positive experience for her. She loves spelling now and has a real curiosity about words that she never had before.“
FEEDBACK FROM TEACHERS:
“Firstly I would like to thank Con for the wonderful workshop that he delivered to myself parents and children in Scoil Eoin Baiste. I am continuing to see the benefits and effects from this workshop on a daily basis with the children that I work with in a small group setting. So much so that they are challenging me to spell the words backwards (using their taught method of whiteboards) and to date they have taken great joy in my epic fails but their joy and pride in knowing they are succeeding in something that I cannot do is amazing!”
“The workshop was not only informative to myself and undoubtedly the parents, but also reinforced in the children’s minds their strengths and then how to overcome their weaknesses; which in most cases is spelling. Children were made realise that they were not stupid but that they learned in a different way than others, and was what they were taught during the session. One child stated afterwards when asked did he enjoy the workshop; “Yes, I enjoyed it. I learned that I was not stupid and I learned how to spell. I know now that I just learn differently than others.”
Teacher and Student
“Parents also had the opportunity to ask any questions and seek advice regarding homework etc. What also became very apparent was that the parents also left the school with a certain confidence that they were going to be part responsible for helping their child succeed in literacy and that they then had the knowledge and confidence to do so. The whole experience in my own opinion was a very positive one for both parents and children. Con was very approachable to both parents and children, and all felt comfortable working with him and were confident to ask him questions throughout.”
