image of spelling exampleEven in a culture that depends on red squiggly lines to appear under every misspelled word as we type or text, spelling is still a basic fundamental skill all children need to know and understand. Children’s spelling ability is a foundational skill that they will build upon throughout grade school, into their teen years and even into their careers. Going hand-in-hand with reading ability, students who struggle to spell may need intense therapies to boost learning and understanding of phonetics. Tutoring may help some children spell better. One-on-one teachers who take a different approach in explaining content may be what a child needs to perform better in spelling. Other students, however, face a more serious disability and need additional therapy than what public school systems and spelling tutors can provide.

Restored Hope will identify the chemical makeup of a child’s brain and determine if any neurological learning disabilities are involved in a struggle with spelling. If neurological disorders are at play, we can provide therapies to remove the barriers and allow students to not only understand spelling – but excel at it, too.
