Learning Link Technologies-Review

I have a nephew that was diagnosed with ADHD when he was a young child in elementary school. He has struggled in a traditional school setting since before that time. As his aunt, I have been disheartened by the struggle I see not only in him not being able to perform certain requirements but, also by my Sister's frustration as well. This is a child that is smart and funny but, doesn't grasp things the same always as you and I do. He gets so completely frustrated, that he quits.

Learning Link Technologies is our last hope to help him while he is still in school to get the "tutoring" he needs to be successful. This review is slightly incomplete because I haven't used this system with him for a long period of time but, wanted to go over what I can with you so that you can see there is some hope out there! He has used these a few times and is slowly getting into a habit of using the patterns described in the DVD's. I am excited to see how this helps him with the new school year starting right around the corner.

If your child has any of these learning problems, please know that there is a way to help them at home. Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, ADD, ADHD, and some additional difficulties are addressed. The program was created to help a wide customer base and originated with Lisa Harp of Harp Learning Institute. There is also a free Dyslexia test and Dyscalculia testing.

I was very intrigued with the knowledge and understanding of these learning difficulties and how the brain works. How a child's brain is wired, is in turn how they will use it. Some children are even mixed dominance which causes them a number of problems "seeing" what they need to see and putting things together. Brain Retraining is what Learning Link does to assist children in reading, math, and other academics.

I am very impressed in the number of resources that they use, the number of years Ms. Harp has in experience, and the number of testimonials on the website there are about children that had a number of different learning problems and how they were helped.

If your child is struggling, please check them out and see if they are a right fit for you. This may be the answer you've been looking for and an end to many days, if not years of frustration for your child!

*Thank you to learning link technologies for providing DVD's for review*

What are your thoughts about the program after using it for a while?

My nephew has been using it along with having an IEP in place at school. He is doing better this year so far. He has ADHD, so it all depends on what your childs learning disabilities are and how diligent you are in doing the training. :)

Hi, I've been looking for reviews and can only find other blog reviews with giveaways. Has your family seen the improvement you expected? Has your nephew 'caught up' to grade level?

Rodger-He is still struggling with certain areas but, in others he is getting better. It really depends on your child, their willingness to learn, what their learning disability is, etc. Learning Links is a learning center that teaches your child physical learning instead of the standard reading and comprehension. Some children really thrive with this type of learning, because it helps them train their brain in a way they can understand.
