The answer to your child’s educational concerns no longer has to be a mystery.

Weak cognitive skills could be the source of your child’s struggles. Science has found that the real cause of a person’s ability to learn lies in the strength, or weakness, of that person’s cognitive skills. If skills are strong, learning comes easily and “naturally.” But skill weaknesses can remain hidden and cause a student to struggle with learning or reading. A professional cognitive skills test is the only way to pinpoint the exact underlying cause of any learning problem. Cognitive skills determine a student’s abilities in the 5 core elements that make up intelligence.

• Auditory Processing

This ability helps to effortlessly blend or analyze sounds with words. It also is the key to reading and spelling.

• Visual Processing

This skill includes the capacity to form and manipulate accurate images in your mind. It is essential for math and reading comprehension.

• Memory Skills

Weakness in this skill is often the underlying cause in a student’s inability to follow instructions in all academic areas.

• General Processing Speed

The ease and speed with which a student handles incoming information is the basic boundary of his or her learning efficiency.

• Logic and Reasoning

Weakness in this skill obscures connections a person needs to make in order to solve problems. This can bog down the learning process.

The scores from a cognitive skills test can reveal weaknesses in these areas that could be the source of struggle for your child. But the scores don’t tell the whole story. The next step is specific, intense training in weak skills. These together will help unlock your child’s academic potential.
