Brain Balance Achievement Center of Santa Barbara Has a Plan for Children with Learning Disorders
Help and Hope for Learning Disorders
For over a decade, the Brain Balance Program in Santa Barbara and across the country, has helped tens of thousands of children with learning and developmental issues through an integrated, whole-child approach. Learning disorders are classified as a group of disorders that inhibit the brain’s ability to receive, process, store, and communicate information.
Brain Balance Achievement Center of Santa Barbara can help children with learning disorders through an integrated, drug-free approach. Learning disorders affect as many as 1 in 5 people across the United States. Learning disorders can cause a person to have trouble learning and using certain skills. These can contribute to difficulties in academic performance as well as low self-esteem and trouble developing interpersonal relationships.
Common learning disorders that the Brain Balance Program can help with include Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, and Dyspraxia. Children with Dyslexia often have trouble reading, recognizing letters, learning letter sounds, and identifying rhyming words. These children often have trouble learning to spell and write once they are in school. Dysgraphia affects a child’s fine-motor skills and is characterized by distorted and incorrect handwriting. Children with Dyscalculia often have problems learning fundamentals that include one or more basic numerical skills. A sign of this learning disorder in children is noticing trouble with basic addition and subtraction problems. Dyspraxia is a condition characterized by a difficulty in carrying out routine tasks involving balance, fine-motor control, and kinesthetic coordination.
