We have been searching for a long time for somewhere like 5senses learning. My son has made so much progress with their help. They have a true passion for teaching.
I am convinced that God brought us to 5 senses learning at the perfect timing. Since being diagnosed and knowing what she is going through, I am now able to understand and help her. Her confidence has increased and school has improved tremendously!
I was like most people to begin with when I heard about Irlen Syndrome and the Irlen Method, I thought it was a joke and there was no way it could help me, but boy was I wrong. I never was one to have troubles reading per say, but I have always had a hard time working on the computer for long hours. I would always get headaches, start to feel sick, and have to take frequent breaks. Kristia did the screening on me and found my colors about a month ago though, and I don't know how I ever managed without them. I have not had any headaches, sickness spells, or anything since starting to use my colors (I taped them onto my computer screen), and I can work on the computer for 10+ hours a day without needing to take a break. I love it! I've even looked at getting my everyday glasses tinted to my colors, since my screening results were deemed severe enough for it to be a benefit. I highly recommend that everyone does the questionnaire and gets screened if needed. You WILL NOT be disappointed and the changes WILL amaze you.
I have always read to my daughter, helped her every night with her homework and encouraged her as she was learning. However, as months went by in school, she was not progressing in reading the way I believe she should have been. She would switch sight words, stumble over simple words and break down in tears every time we tried to read. I tried every tactic I knew of, I was always encouraging and my sweet baby, no matter how hard she tried or how much she wanted to, she just could not read well. Ms.Akins at 5 Senses Learning was able to see within 3 sessions with my daughter how to help her. I have NEVER witnessed anything like it. My daughter wants to read and she is doing so much better. We are so thankful for our 5 Senses Learning Family. Ms.Akins is trained in so many areas, she truly listens to your child and is there to help them. We are blessed beyond measure to have found them.
Kristia has made a great effort in helping my daughter with her reading skills. She knows her stuff and is eager to help others learn to the best of their ability.
I love 5 Senses Learning! My daughter is 5 years old and is very stubborn when it comes to learning, but Mrs. Akins always has a way to make the lessons fun and engaging. I am so happy to have found her!
