Help­ing kids learn out­side the box

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

MONTO woman Diana Vo­gel’s frus­tra­tion with the ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem and hav­ing a son with spe­cial needs drove her to es­tab­lish Reach Your Po­ten­tial Tu­tor­ing Cen­tres.

Her son had been di­ag­nosed with dys­lexia at age eight. Re­ceiv­ing no help from his school she de­cided to home school. Ms Vo­gel, who now re­sides on the Gold Coast, said ini­tially she made things worse through not un­der­stand­ing how he learned.

“I be­gan re­search­ing ed­u­ca­tion, learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties, nat­u­ral ther­a­pies, neu­ro­science, stroke pa­tient re­cov­ery... and dis­cov­ered a way to help my own son,” Ms Vo­gel said.

“Par­ents of other chil­dren strug­gling at school started see­ing the dif­fer­ence in him and then asked me if I could help their chil­dren as well.

Ms Vo­gel’s Reach Your Po­ten­tial Tu­tor­ing sys­tem is con­tin­u­ously be­ing im­proved and built upon and has a 94% suc­cess rate help­ing chil­dren with con­di­tions such as dys­lexia, ADD, ADHD and mild asperg­ers. The sys­tem as­sists in mem­ory, con­cen­tra­tion, read­ing and writ­ing.

Our tu­tor in this area has had to re­sign and the cen­tre is look­ing for some­one who wants to have their own busi­ness and­wants to change chil­dren's lives for the bet­ter. For more in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing Reach Your Po­ten­tial Tu­tor­ing Cen­tres, please visit www.reachy­our­po­ten­tial­
