Frequently Asked Questions
Who can This Help?
There are three main student categories:
- Dyslexic Students who can’t right a basic sentence, without severe spelling and grammar mistakes (HALF-CIRCLE – for students who are just lost)
- Inability to write a basic five-paragraph essay without significant spelling and grammatical mistakes (FULL-CIRCLE – Gen ed teachers need this or they don’t know what to do)
- For College bound students who require the ability to write an evolved 5-paragraph essay meeting the strict requirements of senior university professors. (INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED – Become college functional →Craft of Research←)
How does it work?
- Normal courses work from general to specific. Our course focuses on working from the specific to the general. According to the brain scan in Overcoming Dyslexia by Sally Shaywitz, dyslexic students have an 2x to 3x overactive front part of the brain which deals with articulation and word analysis. That’s why we focus on those two properties to bring a deep understanding and comprehension in the least amount of time
- The process we implement in teaching students helps force the brain to organize itself using writing as a measurable output.

Why is it better than competitors’ programs?
- The vast majority of current programs for dyslexic students do not focus on articulation and word analysis at their core.
- Most programs involve catching students up. This becomes more difficult the further they are behind. However, in our program, the older you get the quicker you pick up the material. This is due to our targeting of the proper part of the brain in our education system.
How do you start?
- The first thing we want to do is to see if this would be effective for your dyslexic student
- Does our teaching style effective for your dyslexic student, for your teachers, and for yoru family
- Take our free course as a trial run!
- Even if you’re a dyslexic student at an ivy league school grad program, our half-circle concept would be benefitial.
- If you find that what we’re doing is effective for you, and works for your schedule, we’d ask that you sign up for our full-circle course, if not, please let us know via email and we can provide you with a list of alternative schools and institutions that may be a better fit for you.
Worst Practices when it comes to teaching students with Dyslexia
Expectations of understanding after 1st, 2nd, or even 5th explanation, that they will get something in an area of difficulty.
Best Practices when it comes to teaching students with Dyslexia
- Need to focus on the kernel of their concern, and practice it until mastery (Unconscious competence [Example- learning to tie your show, as a child all focus is on the shoe, as an adult, complex conversations can be held while tying your shoe])
- In just three courses, we’re exposing the dyslexic student to the writing demands of senior university professors by giving them a solid understanding of the key points in the Craft of Research.
