The Foundation For Learning Development Releases Learning Disabilities Research Results

Share Article

Comprehensive list of Cognitive Training Devices, Programs and Tools is an invaluable resource for parents and educators of children with learning disabilities.

Although this is a comprehensive list of the current technological programs available for learning disabilities, it is only the beginning. We will continue to add new programs to our research list but more importantly, identify which training tools are relevant to which populations and outline a sequence of training for students with learning disabilities.

The Foundation for Learning Development has released its comprehensive list of Cognitive Training Devices, Programs and Tools targeted to parents and educators of children with learning disabilities.

This list comes at an important time of the year as most students have recently started the new school year. It also comes on the heels of a recent report by the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) that states, "a fifth of students (at least 6% of all students) with learning disabilities (LD) are five or more grade levels behind; half of students with LD are more than three grade levels behind."

Where does a parent begin when their child has a learning issue?
Most children who are identified in school with a learning disability are given special accommodations such as seating in the front of the classroom and extra time to finish homework and take tests. But these only serve as band-aids and do not remedy the underlying learning disability.

Few parents and educators are aware that there is a technological and educational market to help individuals improve attention, processing, learning, and memory. The Foundation for Learning Development identified at its last conference the need for compiling a comprehensive list of successful tools for children with learning disabilities.

The release of the Cognitive Training Devices, Programs and Tools is an important first step for parents and educators to find proven alternatives to in-classroom methods for improving the cognitive functioning of learning disabled children.

According to Dr. Valerie Maxwell, founder of The Foundation for Learning Development, "Although this is a comprehensive list of the current technological programs available for learning disabilities, it is only the beginning. We will continue to add new programs to our research list but more importantly, identify which training tools are relevant to which populations and outline a sequence of training for students with learning disabilities."

The Foundation for Learning Development is publishing this list as a beginning attempt to map the better-known cognitive training tools. We invite your participation in this path-blazing effort.

About The Foundation For Learning Development
The Foundation for Learning Development was established to develop and coordinate the efforts and resources necessary to measure and improve the skills all children need to learn effectively, especially those with Learning Disabilities. Given the growing and disproportionately high number of children with learning disabilities and poor testing scores, The Foundation for Learning Development serves to attract the best and brightest minds in the fields of education and science to study and assess the maximization of human potential.
