Using senses together boost academics.

A balance and sensory activity program is helping struggling children catch up in reading, writing, comprehension and focus as well as allowing gifted children to excel.

The Learning Breakthrough Program was developed for children with attention deficit disorder/attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia and other learning disabilities.

The program involves having a child watch a video which sets up tasks, such as tossing balls at a target or tapping a hanging ball while standing on a balance board. It combines various activities to strengthen most areas involved with learning and performance.
