Top Docs Radio on Midtown Business RadioX Features The Swift School

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - January 26, 2015) - On December 31st, 2014, Top Docs Radio welcomed to the studio two learning specialists, Lisa Armorer and Carol Madden, and three students from The Swift School to discuss how their program provides hope and encouragement to children, and parents of children, with learning disabilities.

The Swift School is a private school that provides special attention and help to students with learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, memory issues, and others. These students are put into an environment that is specifically designed to maximize their learning potential. It has become apparent that these students thrive in smaller learning environments.

"Historically, education was not in a four walls setting. If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob children of their tomorrows. Everyone is different in their thinking, their learning, and their experiencing," explained Armorer. "And so what we do at The Swift School is bring the language and math alive so children are engaged and are feeling it, and not just through rote memorization… everyone learns differently."

Most people are unaware that there are so many students who have incredible potential to be successful. Unfortunately, most school systems do not spend the time and effort to discover how to teach these children so they are able to learn and retain information. The Swift School views learning disabilities as a "brain type." It's not necessarily a disability, says the learning specialists, but a brain type not quite recognized by today's society.

A few indicators of dyslexia are delayed spoken confusion, left/right confusion, slow to memorize the alphabet and math facts, and avoidance of reading out loud. Children with learning disabilities are still able to be successful if given the time and patience by their instructors and parents. The Swift School thinks outside the box and helps these students reach their full potential.
