Example text

When he has to solve visual problems, Frank works in a methodical manner and is able to picture correct solutions in his head before he begins. Because of skills like these, Frank’s overall IQ is above average. Frank completes much of his schoolwork quickly and without difficulty. He has no trouble figuring out how to solve math word problems and knows how to do the computations, but he is slow at recalling math facts. His copying is very slow, even for simple information, and his oral reading is dysfluent; that is, he does not read smoothly.

There are many different ways to be intelligent and no test looks at all of them. In fact, not everyone agrees on what intelligence is or how it should be measured. One current theory states that there are seven different types of intelligence and that these types are not related to each other. These types of intelligence are reasoning and math, mastery of language, manipulating and creating mental images, musical ability, coordinated body movements, understanding oneself, and understanding and getting along with others.

It is possible that the proper intervention(s) can retrain children’s, or even adults’, brains enough for them to overcome their processing differences and develop into average readers and spellers. This is an exciting new area of research. However, it will take a long time to find out if the initial improvements that children show remain with them as they progress into adolescence and adulthood, and if these improvements affect all the different areas impacted by processing weaknesses.
