Reading Problems & Dyslexia

"Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge."  International Dyslexia Association

Dyscalculia

Dyscalculia is a math learning disability that impairs an individual's ability to lean number-related concepts, perform accurate math calculations, reason and problem solve, and perform other basic math skills.  The word dyscalculia comes from Greek and Latin and simply means counting badly. Today, the word serves as a broad term for learning difficulties in math. About 5% (3 - 6%) of people struggle with this learning disability.

Autism

Memory Problems

Memory is the ability to hold and recover information about past events or knowledge. When there are problems with memory it could be related to short term, working or long term memory and long-term. It may be difficult to  retain information while processing or using it.  Therefore, processing multiple instructions or complex instructions and executing them may be limited.  Remembering if and when to take medication or where the key were left might also be limited.  But also  storing information and fluently retrieving it later might be hindered causing difficulties in remembering things from the past or information previously studied even if understood appropriately.

SAT & Standardized Testing

Just because your teen can remember math formulas or the timeline of World War II does not mean they are ready for college. There are actually two parts to smart—knowledge and IQ—and you need both of them to get into top colleges and universities.

Mental Aging - Adults & Seniors

Cognitive aging is not a disease.  It occurs to everyone as they go through their lifespan.  The process is very variable and differs from individual to individual.  It depends on many factors such as genetics, overall health, lifestyle, exercise, social activity, type of work and duration of work, medications and others.  It is not only about forgetting things and decreasing memory.  Cognitive changes are gradual and variable and could impact several cognitive skills.  Most commonly are working memory, short and long term memory, attention, processing speed, problem solving and decision making skills.  Cognitive decline may begin as early as in our thirties but accelerate as we grow older.
