Does your child hate to read? He might have vision issues.

My husband and I having lunch with Dr. Juan Barajas in Mission. Dr Barajas is the only developmental optometrist in the Valley. We highly recommend that children with learning struggles, especially with reading, visit him. (This is very different than the vision screenings at your child's school).

He specializes in helping children who are struggling readers. Not only does he prescribe glasses if needed, but he tests visual perception also and even will show you some fun eye exercises that you and your child can do at home to help his eyes work together better.

You can call Barajas Vision Clinic in Mission at 956-581-6151.
Invest in your child's eyesight - 80% of what he learns at schools is through his eyes!

2 Workshops Dates

Training on how to effectively deal with unmotivated students who are hyper, have difficulty reading, struggle to learn, have poor memory, and hate to write.

Learn how right brain children think and learn, the roots behind their behavior problems, instructional strategies so they can have better retention.

Take home easy to implement classroom accommodations for right brain children, DIY items to make for your classroom, and much more!

Learn how to easily and informally screen your students to identify right brain learning struggles - which can explain why these students can outwardly appear uncooperative, lazy, and forgetful and inattentive.

Open to all educators - teachers, administrators, counselors, diagnosticians, therapists, teacher assistants, and home schooling parents.

Tutoring at our Institute for International Studies is both academic and therapeutic.
We teach using multi sensory materials to engage the children's interest and help them learn.
Do you know what these are? They are custom built by us phonics phones to amplify the sounds as children learn to read fluently, and balance boards (more explanation on these coming up later). Alternative seating for children who struggle with sitting still in a desk, we let them move while learning which helps them to actively focus on what they are learning.

BONUS
Upcoming teacher workshops will learn how to make these Phonics Phones for their classroom.

These are great for children in kinder to grades 4. Sometimes these are called whisper phones, since an entire class of children can use them at the same time as they read quietly to themselves.

Are your kids 'addicted' to screen time? Do they get angry and fuss when you take their screen away from them?
I dare you to try this! No, you won't be super popular mom in the neighborhood, but your children will thank you as they grow older.
More in later posts about screen time, ADHD, outbursts, eye issues and reading problems.

Tomorrow is our free dyslexia workshop. Parents, teachers and counselors are welcome! Don't miss it!
Mi profesor Deborah es fantastica !
Are you still doing presentations for children with learning disabilities, or for that subject what do you offer as an institute?
Institute for International Studies is my new business. Friends - I would greatly appreciate the favor of sharing this post with your contacts on Facebook. Quite honestly, I really believe that we all know people who might understand English or Spanish, but they can't carry on a conversation in that language. Why not help your friends make the decision to call me for more info on how they can be successful in SPEAKING CONVERSATIONAL ENGLISH OR SPANISH. Thanks in advance for sharing and promoting - I want to make a difference in our community.
