Description

Strategies for...
  • Increasing sequencing and memory
  • Reading ability including instant improvement
  • Handwriting
  • Increasing words written
  • Math skills
  • Improving processing speed
  • Reducing anxiety, including test anxiety
  • Stopping reversals

In this recording, professionals from many different perspectives come together to learn how their interventions integrate to remediate some of the more complicated dysfunctions seen in education. The Pyramid of Potential approach starts the remediation with building blocks of mind and body health from the nutrition and psychology disciplines. This is followed by neurodevelopment and sensory-motor development from occupational therapy, physical therapy and vision therapy disciplines. Finally, cognitive skills training, such as memory, attention, and processing speed, come from education.

This program combines lecture and notes with discussion and hands-on exercises to help facilitate different learning styles.

Kathy Johnson, MS Ed.'s Profile

Kathy Johnson, MS Ed. Related seminars and products: 4


KATHY JOHNSON, MS Ed., has been working with students since 2000 to overcome their reading struggles, as well as other learning issues. She found an excellent program that brought their decoding abilities to grade level in a matter of months. Yet, some could not read the test in grade level books, so she began her exploration into the trainings and therapies that brought students’ success. Many increased their IQ and no longer required extra services. Kathy received training in order to bring these therapies to others which include Primitive Reflex Training by Samuel A. Berne, OD, Therapeutic Listening by Sheila Frick, Samonas Listening by Jill Stowell, PACE by Learning Rx, Phono-Graphix by Read America, Irlen Syndrome, Brain Gym 101, and An Introduction to Rhythmic Movement.

In 2000, Kathy started The Hunter School of Ballston Spa for struggling students, in which she and her assistant taught third through eighth graders required academics while remediating their struggles through therapy during the school hours. In 2002, she started an educational consulting business to screen and remediate student struggles individually. Since then she has also given lectures and workshops to clinics and schools, been a guest on Internet talk radio shows, and wrote The Roadmap from Learning Disabilities to Success plus other DVDs and publications. Kathy earned her Master’s degree from the State University of New York at Albany where she instructed faculty and staff, was an adjunct professor at Schenectady County Community College, and taught at The Adirondack School of Northeastern New York.
