ENERGIA SOI DIAGNOSTICS
ENERGIA SOI BASED TREATMENT MATERIALS
Energia SOI materials exactly match the SOI profiles; materials are more focused for specific training to address the specific needs of the learning disabled.
Energia SOI materials teach in each of these content areas: Figural (Spatial), Symbolic (N.otational) and seMantic(verbal).
WHY IS A MULTI-FACETED TEST IMPORTANT?
There are many aspects to intelligence. You want a test that is sensitive to these differences, especially for the learning disabled who typically have intellectual strengths which need to be identified as much as their weaknesses.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO KEEP THE DIFFERENT MEASURES SEPARATE?
There are many types of learning disabilities; the learning disabled do not all have the same profile. It is essential to any academic placement program to know which specific abilites have not yet been developed. This is the specific information that the Energia SOI test provides.
HOW CAN ENERGIA SOI TESTING BE USED TO MEASURE PROGRESS?
One of the difficulties on any LD program is seeing evidence of progress before the progress reaches a point where curriculum performance improves; the Energia SOI test offers a means of identifying (and documenting) intervening progress. You train specific needs and then you test to see if those abilities have improved (which they will with Energia SOI Training).
HOW DO ENERGIA SOI TRAINING MATERIALS DIFFER FROM OTHERS?
Energia SOI training materials are designed specifically to teach one learning ability at a time to optimize learning and cognitive growth. Energia SOI defines learning disabilities as the lack of learning abilites. So, the focus is on developing learning skills that help from the foundation for academic learning.
IS THERE AN EVIDENCE THAT ENERGIA SOI MAKES A DIFFERENCE?
There are many studies that show have Energia SOI can make a difference. Perhaps the most dramatic was done at the University Heights School in Seattle, Washington. In that program, students were seriously behind. Some were LD,LLD, ED and Dyslexic, yet they gained an average of 14.7 IQ points (as measured by the WISCR) and showed a language gain of 2.6 stanines. In the second year, the students made an average gain of an additional 11 IQ points. Thus, over the two years, the students made an average gain of 25 IQ points, compared with the usual LD program in which students typically lose about 5 IQ points and make no appreciable gain in language performance.
