    There are many different programs out there claiming that they can fix learning difficulties and bring your child to age expected level. Each child’s needs are different and they require individualised intervention targeting their own areas of difficulty. Many programs are useful tools to use in conjunction with a program created and monitored by a professional. It is important to consider the financial investment required by the program and if the program has been independently researched (i.e. not by the creator or publisher) on a large number of participants.

    A useful tool for reviewing programs is offered by the Macquarie University – see http://www.musec.mq.edu.au/community_outreach/musec_briefings#MB28
