Memory & Learning Strategy Courses
The Empowered Learning Pyramid:
The Foundation of All Learning
(Click the levels of the pyramid below to learn about each one)
The Peak of the Pyramid – Content
Once the essential aspects of learning functions are assessed, addressed, and combined with expertise in the Empowered Learning™ brain-based Learning Strategies™, graduates of the Empowered Learning Transformational Center can enhance their ability to learn any subject matter more effectively.
Level Four – Learning Strategies
Learning strategies work with the notion that each person learns differently, so “one size fits all” teaching strategies fail students with different learning styles. Many people labeled learning disabled are challenged on a sensory or visual processing level and only need a different type of education to accelerate their learning processes.
Founder Peter Riddle has developed Learning Strategies™, a proprietary set of brain-based learning strategies modeled after how the best learners in every category approach learning. These strategies teach students how to absorb content the way their brain was designed to accept information. Learning Strategies™ are universal – completely applicable to every subject and aspect of learning. The Empowered Learning™ Program produces a learner who assimilates content based on the way their brain was designed to accept it, creating a much more efficient and comfortable learning experience and improving areas like memory and retention.
Level Three – Cognitive Skills
Cognitive Skills are individual functions of the brain – 41 of which govern an individual’s ability to learn. The underdevelopment of these core cognitive brain functions can impair the ability to process information, leading to a difficult in learning content.
The award-winning Brainware™ software program with special training modules for each of the 41 cognitive abilities will bring any underdeveloped areas into the developed range and possibly even into the gifted range. Along with properly developed sensory-motor and visual processing abilities, properly developed cognitive skills make learning difficulties fall away and allow easy, efficient content learning.
Level Two – Visual Processing (VP)
This is often the underlying cause of reading, focus, attention and behavioral difficulties. VP – not to be confused with proper eyesight – is the two-fold ability to physically control eye movement as well as efficiently move information from the eyes to the brain via neural connections. VP deficiencies are often the underlying cause of problems with reading and comprehension, as well as behavioral problems related to the areas of focus and attention. VP deficiencies are often misdiagnosed as symptoms of ADD/ADHD, and lead to the often unnecessary prescribing of powerful medications such as Ritalin and Adderall.
An individualized program of special integrated visual and sensory-motor exercises in our brain gym to correct both the under-developed eye control issues – refixations, convergence, tracking, side-to-side dipping, wall-eye – as well as strengthening the under-developed neural connections carrying information from the eyes to the brain, at the same time working on balance and hand-eye coordination. Since its inception, the Empowered Learning™ Program has helped take over 700 students off powerful ADD/ADHD medications and has de-classified 80% of students once assigned to Special Ed. classes.
Level One – Sensory-Motor Integration (SMI)
The “Mind-Body” connection is the cornerstone of all learning. Insufficiently developed neural connections between the brain and the body can often result in clumsy or disruptive behavior, poor handwriting, and symptoms associated with ADHD. A deficient sensory motor system significantly contributes to an individual’s inability to concentrate or engage in learning tasks. At Empowered Learning Transformational Center, we assess and enhance 13 perceptual abilities in our smart gym, with a specific focus on midline, balance, spatial awareness, and gross motor skills. Our program incorporates a series of developmental exercises that target these areas of underdevelopment.
An individualized program of special exercises in our sensory-motor gym will bring the under-developed “mind-body” neural connections up to the well-developed range and eliminate balance, coordination, focus and attention challenges.
We take an innovative approach by integrating visual training within a busy and distracting environment as part of and with our sensory training. We understand that real-life situations often involve busy and distracting settings, which can impact a person’s ability to process information and stay focused. By simulating such environments during our training sessions, we challenge individuals to enhance their visual skills and cognitive abilities amidst various distractions.
This unique integration allows participants to sharpen their visual processing, attention, and concentration in the face of everyday challenges. Our goal is to equip individuals with the tools and resilience needed to excel in diverse environments, ensuring that their sensory motor skills are optimized for success in both structured and dynamic settings. By combining our specialized developmental exercises with the dynamic visual training, we offer a comprehensive approach that fosters well-rounded sensory motor capabilities. Join us in our smart gym, and experience the transformative impact of integrating visual training with real-world distractions to reach new heights in perceptual abilities and overall performance.
Some Kind Words from
Parents and Students.
“Your program is a MIRACLE! She was struggling in school with about a C average and it was a battle getting her to do her work. After completing the program, she looks forward to her assignments (although they still take her much longer than they should), enjoys her reading and now averages about a B+. Her self-image and self-esteem have improved greatly. She is happier and has more time for leisure and social activities, as I believe all children should have. I attribute all of these positive changes to your program!”
“I want to express my gratitude to the staff for a job well done. Thanks to their efforts, Brittany has finally turned the corner in so many ways. Her teachers and I have seen reading, writing, and social skills improve. I now see higher state test scores and real improvement in grades. But the most impressive change by far is the confidence she has acquired. Her focus has shifted from perceived failures into conversations about positive goals and dreams for her future.”
I recommend this program to everyone I know who has attention problems. As a teacher, I have recommended this program to present and past students. It is a truly amazing program!”
