Brain Based Learning creates confident students because each student learns how his/her brain works best. Exploring different learning styles for students helps them select the techniques and modalities that really resonate with their brain memories. Students also begin to understand that people learn differently and that their individual learning styles are excellent.
Parents should listen to what their students are telling them. Does your student say, ” I have never been able to learn math, so I am not going to this time.” Have you heard, ” Everyone else in the class is smart.” The worst is, ” I am dumb!” This negative attitude is a result of students being forced into using one learning method and not exploring what works for their individual brains.
All instruction at Ed Sage School is based on how the brain learns. Students are shown various methods to use based on the learning styles that work for them. Learning new information is done quickly and permanently with this instruction. Students feel empowered. They learn that they are really smart!

Building reading comprehension skills starts as soon as your student begins to read. Can your student tell you in his/her own words what the sentence just read means? Can your student explain what happened? Who was involved? What does this means to him/her?
Too often when students begin to read the emphasis is on the pronunciation of the words and not the meaning of the words. Ed Sage School teaches its students to read non-fiction material by paragraph. At the end of the paragraph, the student should be able to summarize what was read in his/her own words. Sometimes if the material is dense and hard to understand, it is necessary to stop and summarize in the middle of a paragraph.
Ed Sage School has its students read with access to an app called Dictionary.com. Students search any word they cannot pronounce, and/or do not know the meaning. This increases the reading comprehension immediately and builds sight word vocabulary.

Is your student struggling with reading comprehension? Can your student summarize what was read in his/her own words? Can your student pronounce words correctly? Does your student spell words correctly? Does your student leave out little words or put in little words when reading which changes the meaning of the sentence?
A Dyslexia Evaluation is now available which will pinpoint reading issues and tell if a student has dyslexia. The evaluation is done by the experts at Education Sage, Inc. The evaluation results in a detailed report of the reading learning issues, what should be done if there are issues, how to take the evaluation information to the child’s school, and what the parents can do at home to help the child. All of this is explained to the parents in a meeting with the people who did the evaluation. The evaluation and meeting are done remotely using Zoom.

Brain based learning helps struggling students because the learning is directed at the individual brain strengths students have. When a student knows the correct pathway to use for memory based on the way his/her individual brain works, the success rate for learning is extremely high.
Ed Sage School’s curriculum and instruction is built on brain based learning. All lessons contain the techniques and modalities that work for different types of learners. Students are shown which techniques and modalities work for their individual brains.
The main goal for each student in Ed Sage School is to build a confident learner who manages all the work and learning to be done. Knowing what to do, how to do it, and when to do it helps students feel good about what they are doing.
Applications for the 2022-2023 school year are now being accepted at Ed Sage School. Contact the Head of School, Beth Silver, for information on how your student can be helped. Beth can be reached at 310-720-0390 or email@example.com.
How organized is your student’s work space at home? Does your student keep it clean and organized? This is important for all students but especially those with ADHD. Sitting down to work in a clean, organized space helps a student get focused more quickly and then stay on task longer.
In the work space there should be places for: textbooks, binders, pencils, pens, erasers, binder paper, blank paper, graph paper, highlighters, and a spot for water to drink while working.
If your student is working on a laptop computer, have it plugged in and charging while the student is working. This is true for iPads, too. Many calculators are light driven, but, if not, make sure the calculator is charging while working. This makes it easier to have the equipment ready for school in the morning if the charging happens during homework/study time.
What about a work surface and a chair? Is your student comfortable while working? Take a look at the size of the work surface and chair- does it fit your growing student?
