Links to Neuro-Developmental Models for Learning Disorders

1. The Structure of Intellect Learning Systems

            www.soisystems.com

This is one of our favorites. It is relatively inexpensive and a great place to start when treating all kinds of learning disorders that relate to school performance.


2. Pace

            www.pacetutoring.com

They probably get the fastest results of them all. It is a great model for reading disorders, increasing memory, increasing attention, and increasing mental processing speed. It is not so effective in treating math disorders.


3. Mel Levine’s: All Kinds of Minds Institute

            www.allkindsofminds.org

This is probably the most comprehensive model for learning disorders. Its strength is in assessment and its weakness is in intervention. They offer the most information for free. They handle all types of disorders including math and social skills disorders.


4. DORE Learning Centers

            www.dorecenters.com

Dore is great for learning disorders. This is a pure neuro-developmental approach. They only do balance work and eye exercises and get great results. They treat reading disorders and attention deficit disorders.


5. Relationship Development Intervention (RDI)

            www.connectionscenter.com

This is the place for children with Autism or Aspergers synderom to learn how to have effective relationships and social skills. A very impressive model and well mapped out.


6. The Interactive Metronome

            www.interactivemetronome.com

Another pure neuro-developmental model. This technique is great at attention deficit disorders and processing speed.


7. Tomatis

            www.tomatis.com

An oldie but goodie for auditory processing problems. It is relatively expensive.


8. Ron Davis Model

            www.dyslexia.com or www.davisdyslexia.com

When it works, it works good. We have seen adolescent and pre-adolescent children with reading disorders become cured in four easy sessions. They have additional techniques for the children who take a little longer.


9. Earobics

            www.earobics.com

The affordable approach for individuals with auditory processing problems.

Another neuro-developmental approach for reading problems and processing problems.


12. Brain Train (These are two different companies with the same name)

            www.braintrain.com and www.brain-train.com

Great computer software to develop attention skills. Also great for individuals who have lost cognitive skills due to brain injury.


13. Locutour

They develop great software for children with mental retardation and related disorders.


14. Ralph Reitan’s Rehabit Program

Another oldie but goodie. Designed for individuals who have seen a Neuro-Psychologist. It is relatively expensive.



15. EEG Biofeedback Models
