HOW CAN CHANNIE'S HELP YOU AND YOUR CHILD?

Expert Testimony:

“After careful review of Channie’s available content and product information, I am extremely optimistic about the application of their handwriting and mathematics specially designed instruction (SDI) for school and home. Two critical areas of special education, particularly at the early childhood and elementary levels, are handwriting (dysgraphia and dyslexia) and math (dyscalculia). Written expression via handwriting is our first and most essential way we teach children to communicate in school and math is the foundation of personal finance and daily functioning in our society. As a field, we have, and currently do, struggle immensely with finding and providing SDI in these two areas.” — Dr. Kurt E. Hulett, Special Education Legal Author, Expert, and Thought Leader

SPECIAL EDUCATION AND 504 STUDENTS:

  • TIER 3: Once a child is identified with either dyscalculia (mathematics learning disability), dyslexia (reading learning disability) or dysgraphia (handwriting/writing disability), we provide Specially Designed Instruction (SDI) to address identified deficits, support the creation of PLAAFP’s (present levels), creation of baselines for measurement, targeted S.M.A.R.T. goals, and sequenced short-term objectives.  Our evidence-based, SDI is ideal for progress monitoring and rapidly accelerating improvement and growth.

WHAT IS DYSGRAPHIA?

Dysgraphia is a neurological condition and learning difference in which someone has difficulty with writing for their age level. This can range from issues with the physical act of writing to issues with translating thoughts into written words. Dysgraphia is manageable with interventions that can help you learn new writing strategies.

WHAT IS DYSLEXIA?

Dyslexia is a language-based learning disorder. Contrary to popular belief, the core indicator of dyslexia is not reversing letters; rather it is a difficulty interpreting the sound (phonological) components of our language. Dyslexia refers to a cluster of symptoms, which result in people having difficulties with specific language skills, particularly reading. Students with dyslexia usually experience difficulties with other language skills such as spelling, writing, and pronouncing words.

WHAT IS DYSCALCULIA?

Dyscalculia is a learning disorder that affects a person’s ability to understand number-based information and math. People who have dyscalculia struggle with numbers and math because their brains don’t process math-related concepts like the brains of people without this disorder. However, their struggles don’t mean they’re less intelligent or less capable than people who don’t have dyscalculia.
