Overcoming Learning Disorders
Learning disorders are conditions that affect an individual’s ability to acquire, store, process, or produce information. They can interfere with the acquisition of basic skills such as reading, writing, and mathematics, and can impact educational, social, and occupational performance.
At Serin Center, our experienced team of neuropsychologists and clinicians is trained to diagnose and treat a variety of learning disorders. We use the latest diagnostic tools and techniques to assess a patient’s cognitive abilities, including attention, memory, language, visual-spatial skills, and executive functioning. With this information, we can create personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs.
Learning disorders we treat at the Serin Center include:
- Dyslexia is a reading disorder that affects a person’s ability to read, spell, and write. It is a neurobiological condition that affects the way the brain processes language.
- Dysgraphia is a writing disorder that affects a person’s ability to write legibly and coherently. People with dysgraphia may have difficulty with spelling, grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure.
- Dyscalculia is a math disorder that affects a person’s ability to perform mathematical operations. People with dyscalculia may have difficulty with basic math concepts, such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
- Nonverbal Learning Disorder (NLD)
- NLD is a learning disorder that affects a person’s ability to understand nonverbal cues and social interactions. People with NLD may struggle with spatial relationships, visual-motor integration, and social communication.
- Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects a person’s ability to pay attention, control impulsive behavior, and regulate activity levels.
At Serin Center, we offer a range of evidence-based treatments to help individuals.
These learning disorders treatments may include:
- Neurofeedback is a non-invasive treatment that uses advanced technology to measure brain activity and provide real-time feedback to help individuals learn to regulate their brainwaves. This can help improve attention, focus, and cognitive abilities.
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- CBT is a type of therapy that helps individuals identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors that may be contributing to their learning disorder. CBT can help individuals develop coping strategies, improve social skills, and build self-esteem.
- Educational Therapy
- Educational therapy is a type of therapy that focuses on developing the cognitive, academic, and social skills needed for success in school and beyond. It may include individualized instruction, study skills training, and organizational strategies.
At Serin Center, we understand the impact that learning disorders can have on individuals and their families. Our goal is to provide compassionate, individualized care to help patients overcome these challenges and reach their full potential.
