Jumpstarting™ Learning Skills

Online Courses & Coaching

Do you, your child or your students have symptoms or a diagnosis of dyslexia?

The characteristics of dyslexia are difficulties with reading and spelling but may also include issues with handwriting, organisational skills and mathematics.

Many students with dyslexia and other learning difficulties are often bright and creative and yet struggle with basic academic tasks.

We here at Jumpstarting™Learning Skills have designed a unique visual system that offers a new way to master vital basic word and number skills

This system has helped many people dramatically improve their ability to learn, including those with:

  • Dyslexia
  • Dyscalculia
  • Hearing impairment
  • Dysgraphia
  • Auditory and visual processing issues
  • Developmental Coordination Disorder (dyspraxia)  

If you or your child is struggling with reading and/or spelling, you may be asking the following questions…

Should I get myself or my child assessed?’

‘What is dyslexia? What are the typical signs and what other problems can arise as a result?’

‘What does that mean for my child? What help will they get in school?’

‘What does that mean for me as an adult with dyslexia? What help is available?’

Has your child already been diagnosed with dyslexia but continues to struggle, despite additional help?

If so, you may be asking:

‘What can I do to help my child at home?’

‘Will they ever overcome their learning difficulties and be successful in school and life?’

‘How can such a bright, creative and intelligent child find reading and spelling so difficult?’

What are the typical signs of dyslexia?

A student with dyslexia may experience one or more of the following:

  • Struggling to get to grips with the basic letter sounds.
  • Not hearing the difference between sounds – bid and bed, for example.
  • Difficulty segmenting and blending sounds together.
  • A word does not ‘stick’, even when decoded successfully – they don’t recognise it again, maybe even on the same page.
  • Words that cannot be sounded out (sometimes called sight words or tricky words) are almost impossible to learn – even short words such as: was, one, who etc.
  • Poor spelling – relying on phonics to spell and as a result making errors such as: wun (one/won), dringk (drink), sed (said).
  • Continuing to reverse letters (e.g. b and d) or transpose whole words (e.g. was and saw) beyond age 7/8. (This is not a cause for concern initially as most children do this when they are starting to learn to form their letters).

These all occur because the right connections are NOT being made between the sounds and the visual representation of them i.e the letters and words.

How is The Jumpstarting™ System different from standard approaches?

Not just another phonics-based reading and spelling programme.

 

The Jumpstarting™ System is not just another phonics-based reading and spelling programme.

 

Instead, the Jumpstarting™ System addresses the underlying issues that create the learning difficulties.

The main underlying issue is that students who are struggling with reading and spelling are not using their mental imagery skills effectively.

 We help those with dyslexia build on their visual strengths in order to develop the mental imagery skills necessary to become successful and confident learners.

 This is not a programme, scheme of work or set of materials and there are no hidden costs.

 

What Difference Can The Jumpstarting™ System Make?

Imagine seeing your child suddenly ‘get’ how to spell and read, after years of struggling, feeling ‘stupid’ and frustrated.

We have witnessed amazing transformations over and over again when using The Jumpstarting™ System.

Here are just some of the typical results we see….

  • Spelling scores go up and reading becomes more fluent, less of a chore and more enjoyable.
  • Stress is reduced and concentration and focus become less of an issue.
  • Students are calmer, happier, more confident and their self-esteem goes up now that they know HOW to learn.
  • We have been told that time spent on homework is reduced dramatically!
  • Parents are happier and calmer now they know how to help their children more effectively.

Our Mission

  • To spread the word about the importance of well-developed mental imagery skills in the learning process.
  •  To encourage the widespread adoption of The Jumpstarting™ System in all schools, so those with dyslexia can learn to read and spell effectively AND maintain and nurture their unique strengths and talents.

Our Vision

In time, dyslexia will no longer be thought of as a disability or a neurological disorder, but be seen as a natural expression of neurodiversity. .

My passion is applying these Jumpstarting™ tools and techniques in the area of education. Since meeting Olive Hickmott, I have been helping students, previously believed to have chronic and life-long learning difficulties, to overcome the debilitating symptoms and move forward in their lives. In fact, I was so taken with the process that I explored the impact of using it with adults with dyslexia in my Master’s research project, with great success.

Why The Jumpstarting™ System is different

  • Our Jumpstarting™ Courses give you the knowledge, understanding and tools to help you support your child or students in successfully overcoming their learning challenges.
  • The best part is that these processes can be learnt within a matter of hours at home at your own pace.
  • Once your child has learnt how to learn more effectively, they then only need 5-10 minutes of practice a day to make the new strategies automatic.
