Welcome to Child Diagnostics!
Are you working with a struggling learner? I have developed a unique diagnostic program that will reveal where the learning process is breaking down for your child and will train the parent in using the corrective steps that will help overcome the child's processing "glitch".
I also offer educational and nutritional counseling that will dramatically improve your child's learning and behavior.
Inside this website you will find free articles and videos that will inform you as to what could be the real problems that your children might be facing. My Daily Lesson Plans for Struggling Learners are also available here for free.

Video Update: "Sight Words"
Posted 21 October 2010
Category: Site Updates
Today's update features the fifth episode of my new FREE web series, "Dianne Craft Presents." "Sight Words" explores the way that the brain processes what we read and how sight words are often difficult for children to sound out and read, particularly those with visual processing glitches, dysfunctions, and dyslexia. Does your child struggle with "outlaw" words, like "city" or "the"? Are repetition, change of location, slower speed, or louder speech not working? Try Sight Words! In this video you will see a demonstration of how my Sight Words Cards work and the reasoning behind why embedding images into letters helps these children read.

"Smart Kids Who Hate to Write" DVD
Does your child seem lazy, sloppy, and unmotivated? He or she could be suffering from a writing glitch called Dysgraphia, which is easily corrected. Some children have to use so much energy for the writing process that they are reluctant to put pencil to paper for anything!
Not all children who have a writing block or dysgraphia also have visual/spatial problems, but they often overlap. This is the most common learning block that gifted children have. Many times it isn't even identified until a child is a teenager and not turning in written work! You will even find out if your child is hard wired to be right handed or left handed.
