from a cry for help
It is a company organized in response to parent's repeated request:
"What can I do to help my child at home?" Certainly there
are numerous educational materials, print and software on the market
today to fill this need.
Or are there?
Ask families whose children don't have the core abilities to use
these programs, to read and follow the directions designed for the
normal achieving child. And how do you know which programs to choose
to address your child's specific needs, and in what order? Parents
repeatedly express their frustration at feeling fragmented in their
approach to helping their child.
Teachers have a huge task adapting their subjects for the 20-150
individual personalities they see in school daily. Imagine
for a moment that you had a program laid out for you with each essential
skill needed to conceptualize, organize and express ideas.
A program you , a parent, could use without being dependent on the
ability or energy level of this year's teacher to prepare and send
material home to use.
Now imagine that each step in the developmental process was broken
down so that you could focus on one concept at a time. You don't
have to drive your son or daughter anywhere to take advantage of
this process. You can use it at home using some weekday time
and some weekend time when you have a little more flexibility. You
can track your child's progress and easily update your daughter
or son's teacher every week.
Well, that program is MindPrime's IDEACHAIN,which is now
