Learning Disabilities & Possibilities - Hope for the Future

Posted by Krystal Hundt on Thu, Dec 20, 2012 @ 12:52 PM

I recently read some updated lyrics of the classic song, Auld Lang Syne. In spite of hearing the traditional New Year's Eve anthem for decades, I had never really known the song's message. After reading it again I realized it refers to looking at times gone by as well as anticipating the times that are ahead. I found this version both easy to read and comforting. We are all celebrating the coming of this New Year. May we all be in unity as we anticipate the great things that 2013 will bring.

"I can't remember conversations" Auditory Memory (pt 2)

This is the third in a series of blogs about six different areas of Memory.

Recently I kicked off a series of articles looking at six different types of memory and how they work. From elementary students to adults, many suffer from memory weaknesses without realizing it. Breakthroughs assesses six different types of memory and this article is the third in a series of blogs about each type, and how they affect our lives. First we looked at two types of visual memory, last week we introduced two types of auditory memory. I highly recommend you read last week’s blog introducing Auditory Memory as today is based on the information discussed there.

Today was one of those days that makes you want to put a sticker on the calendar, the day you want to write home about, the day you want to share with everyone...

So I am sharing it with you.

I truly believe the work I do at Breakthroughs impacts the destiny of each client that sits across the desk from me. It is a joy to watch each student get their breakthrough in learning and each adult find a breakthrough in their search for a career. My favorite days are the ones where the client’s growth is verified through the free retesting we do. In our weekly sessions we work on jumpy eyes, forgetful memory, listening challenges and much more. The goal is to turn these struggles into abilities or strengths.
