Learning Disability? We Offer Help

Personalized Instruction Helps 

Whether the obstacle is dyslexia, dysgraphia, ADD/ADHD, visual and auditory processing deficits or another learning disorder—the patient, friendly, encouraging and fun LearnThatWord technology helps many students with learning disability do their best.

LearnThatWord is a pressure-free and highly rewarding educational program, providing 100% personalized instruction. Many students with learning disability benefit from the technology and acquire solid skills. 

Only Pay for Measured Learning Results

Many of our members find that our technology helps them with their learning struggles.
However, there are many forms of learning disability, and we can't promise that LearnThatWord will help with your particular problem.

What we CAN promise it that you only pay us for measured learning results, so there is no risk involved in trying it out!

Tutoring for All Learning Styles

We know today of three primary learning stylesvisual, auditory and kinesthetic.
All of these learning styles are present in each learner, but in varying levels.
Visual students learn best with their eyes and clear visual displays.
Auditory students can grasp content best if heard, and the kinesthetic student learns easiest hands-on.

Most programsbooks, spelling worksheets, computer programs as well as live teaching favor the visual learner. To support learning via all three learning methods is too time consuming or impractical for most traditional learning channels.

Lots of thought has gone into making LearnThatWord effective for the various learning styles.
We use an unusually large 72 pt. font size for word entry to assist in "engraving" the word into visual memory and assisting the formation of Mental Orthographic Images (MOIs), the brain's way to determine what "looks right."

The audio files and the ability to repeat them as often as needed support the auditory mind. For the kinesthetic learner an active, hands-on process like entering a word is much more beneficial than simply picking a word from a given list or clicking on it.

Computer-Supported Practice

For students struggling with learning disability a group setting is not always the best environment. Other students may advance faster, suggesting to the student that the time they have to learn the content is limited. The result is frustration and discouragement, which further slows progress.

Students who are given the pace and time they need to work on their skills in the comfort and privacy of their home, see better learning results, faster.

The following are quotes from the Learning Disabilities Sourcebook, Vol. 33., ed. by Linda M. Shin., describing the benefits of using computers to assist with learning disability:

"The computer is often characterized as an impartial tutor, providing a risk-free, patient learning partner. It is also known as an interactive environment for creative and independent learning.
Using a computer, learners may adjust and manipulate their own experiences ... and pace of instruction. Computer software accommodates different learning styles and thus can motivate the student to participate actively in learning. ...
A benefit of computer technology is its ability to help all learners participate equally. ... software has many benefits over some of the more traditional skill-building methods. Students with learning disabilities often need repetition in order to build skills and retain information...
Computer software program offer a nonjudgmental forum for study and practice. Whether the student requires one exercise or one hundred, the computer remains neutral. Because repetition is, by nature, tedious for one who has already reached mastery, tutoring, although effective in many ways, may not be the method of choice for skill building. Moreover, spelling worksheets, although a useful supplement for teaching, often mean "busy work."
Educational software provides a fresh and dynamic means of skills reinforcement and application.
For those students whose learning disabilities affect the auditory and/or visual perception, format and presentation of material is critical. Thus, distance education programs that employ a multi-sensory approach ... may enhance learning ability."
