Welcome to Time Out Learning Centre
The Time Out Centre (Not For Profit) helps people with learning difficulties, ADHD, Dyslexia, Irlen Syndrome, Dysgraphia, Asperger’s, sleep problems, Tinnitus, Depression/Anxiety, ADHD, Attention and Focus, etc. to help them reach their potential.
We, at the Time Out Centre, consider that the first thing to be undertaken with anybody seeking help in the above areas is to find the cause of their difficulty.
Because brains are complex, there is seldom only one cause of difficulties. For example, an ADHD person can also have Learning Difficulties and Irlen Syndrome (Hale, S. Visual network asymmetry and default mode network function in ADHD, 2014), or a person with Trauma could also have Learning Difficulties, or Dyslexia could be combined with Irlen Syndrome. Because of this complexity, the outcomes are also complex when the brain is not functioning well. For example, you can have the same outcomes in behaviour and learning with Developmental Trauma, Irlen Syndrome and ADHD, but different parts of the brain are affected.
Remediation of whatever sort without understanding the whole picture is a ‘band-aid’ approach. At Time Out, we look at the whole problem, listen to parents/clients, and together decide what assessment, diagnosis, referral or strategy would be appropriate, and then discuss what help or what kind of remediation is available, based on scientific evidence.
