Approach and Intervention of Learning Disability

Our intervention approach develop the student’s ability to learn so that they can become independent learners.
At Speech Matters, a brain and thinking development based program is used in the intervention for individuals with learning disabilities and dyslexia. This proven method targets cognitive development and develop thinking skills. Our program empowers the child to learn more effectively and efficiently.
A thorough and accurate assessment is key in this approach. Children with learning difficulties are assessed using Dynamic Assessment tools as well as speech therapy assessment battery. A cognitive profile of the child’s learning skills and deficiencies is generated to guide an individualized and a customized intervention program is formulated. The Mediated Learning Experience (MLE) approach is adopted to facilitate learning.
Mediated Learning Experience is a proven approach and is recognized internationally as an efficient and effective way to address cognitive deficiencies that hinder learning and future learning.
