On Point Learning Solutions Welcomes You!
Our Director and Facilitator Janell Warkentin:
Janell is a Licensed and Certified Davis® Corrections Program Facilitator and Davis® Autism Approach Facilitator/Coach. She herself is a corrected Dyslexic. This gives her and understanding of what individuals that are visual spatial learners are experiencing.
Janell instructed 9th grade English in an exclusive school in Khabarovsk, Russia for two years. Upon returning to the United States she began a career as a professional horse trainer and clinician.
It is the blend of understanding visual spatial learning, experience as an educator, and empathy gained through training horses and riders that makes Janell an exceptional facilitator.
“Ok – you’re a Visual Spatial Learner! There is NOTHING wrong with you! You are a picture-thinker and you are GIFTED! So, LET’S GO! Let me show you how it works! …It’s never too late!”
The purpose of the Correction Programs is to empower children and adults who experience difficulties with reading, writing, math, language, focus, anxiety, time management, social skills, and attention. They gain a new understanding of their personal thinking style and perceptual processes. They will be learning self-help methods for controlling perception, as well as skills for eliminating confusions regarding language and math symbols.
The Correction Programs are based on the finding that many individuals who exhibit learning disability symptoms and anxiety in social settings have a natural and innate ability to shift or alter their mental and physical perceptions. They can use this perceptual ability to facilitate creativity, improve physical performance, enhance thinking, or resolve confusions. However, when they use this same ability to resolve confusions with language or math symbols, or in interpreting social clues it only causes unwanted perceptual distortions and noticeable disorientation that effect vision, hearing, balance, energy levels, focus, motor skill, time sense and/or speech.
Individuals who process and use this thinking style can be shown how to control their perceptions so disorientation no longer interferes with their ability to learn and socialize successfully. During the program clients gain experience using this skill as they clear up many of their basic confusions regarding letters, words, sounds, numbers, and other language symbols. Along with tools that allow them to be who they are in social settings reducing the overwhelming “static” that disorientation can cause.
Visual Spatial Processing is one of the most misunderstood learning styles in today’s educational landscape. At one time, Visual Spatial Learning was defined as deficiency in brain function – a disability. We now know, however, that Visual Spatial Learning is not a result of a genetic flaw – or brain, eye, or ear malfunction – it is a difference in thinking and learning style that can cause confusion when dealing with symbols or understanding of social norms.
In fact, some of our culture’s most talented people are Visual Spatial Learners – as is true for many of the pioneers in technology, physics, and art.
Today, there is real relief for the struggle, frustration, and self-esteem-crushing symptoms of Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, and the many other variations that accompany the Visual Spatial thinking style, including (but not limited to):
- ADD or ADHD
- Reading disability
- Language-based learning disability
- Dyspraxia (balance)
- Dyscalculia (math)
- Dysgraphia (hand writing)
- Auditory processing disorder
- Visual processing disorder
If you or your child have any of the above mentioned diagnosis – or simply experience fatigue, frustration, or difficulty when dealing with the written word – please contact Janell Warkentin for a no-obligation phone consultation and see if On Point Learning Solutions can help!
