Raviv Method to Offer First U.S. Practitioner Training Course
Date:3/18/2009

Novel approach improves reading and attention deficits in children and adults.

IRVINE, Calif., March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The Raviv Method, an innovative neuro-cognitive approach to correcting learning and attention deficits associated with dyslexia, AD(H)D and related neurological disorders, will launch its first U.S. practitioner training course in Los Angeles on April 25. The course is open to special needs professionals and educators, parents of children with attention or learning difficulties, or those interested in therapeutic treatment for cognitive deficiencies.

Developed by Nili Raviv nearly 14 years ago, the Raviv Method is effective for individuals with dyslexia, dyspraxia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, as well as neurological problems like AD(H)D and conditions resulting from brain damage. The Method is based on permanently improving the coordination and synchronization of the brain's neural systems and changing the way the brain functions, contravening traditional methods which teach people to cope with their disabilities rather than dealing with the problem at its core. The training corrects any gaps in the development stages of learning and enables the formation of new neural circuits where vital connections must be created between different parts of the brain.

"Our program has helped thousands of children in Israel and Europe achieve a breakthrough in learning where conventional therapies were ineffective," said Nili Raviv from the Raviv Method Learning Center in Haifa, Israel. "I'm pleased to bring this ground-breaking approach and our successful track record to the special needs community in the U.S."

With centers in Israel, London and Ireland, the program has trained more than 500 practitioners to work with children and adults in private, school and group settings. The practitioner training course comprises three core modules that provide a basic understanding of the brain's functions, an in-depth understanding of the theory and principles behind the Raviv Method and the ability to treat clients hands-on. Licensed practitioner status is granted upon completion of the training program.

Besides enhancing learning skills, the method has been found to improve behavior and organizational skills and self esteem and to lower anxiety.

The Practitioner Training Course begins Saturday, April 25 and runs for three weekends through May 17.
