ADHD Didn’t Hold Riley and Merryn Back From Achieving Math Success

By Elephant Learning | Case Study

Summary

ADHD, ADD, and dyslexia didn’t stop Riley and Merryn from learning math, even after the kids transitioned from public to private school. 

1.) Challenges

Riley and Merryn both have ADHD, ADD, and dyslexia. Their learning issues prevent them from focusing and learning subjects correctly and learning in traditional settings. Mathematics especially proved difficult for the kids. In addition, Riley is on the higher functioning autism spectrum. 

Due to their learning issues and the fact that Riley was regularly bullied, both kids were moved from public school to private school. Since the change, Riley and Merryn have gained more confidence but needed to catch up on mathematics. 

2.) Finding Elephant Learning

After Riley and Merryn’s mom became permanently disabled after a car accident, the family has struggled to pay for medical bills, private school, and other expenses. However, they still wanted to give Riley and Merryn the best educational foundation they could afford. 

After reading reviews on Elephant Learning and seeing that it was an affordable option, the family enrolled Riley and Merryn in the program to see if it would give the kids a step up in their math learning.

How Ryan Learned to Love Learning Math Again

How Ryan Learned to Love Learning Math Again

By Elephant Learning | Case Study

Summary

Even though Ryan was nine years old and in the 4th-grade, he could only do math at a 1st-grade level. He needed all the help he could get to improve his math comprehension during homeschool. 

1.) Challenges

Since Ryan was in 1st grade, he was always bullied and teased. For months, Ryan’s parents unsuccessfully pleaded with the school to switch Ryan to a new class. Ryan would come home, defeated, and depressed every day from school, unmotivated to do any learning. 

Even with his parents’ extra support at home, learning anything (especially mathematics) was like moving through mud. After doing crisis intervention with Ryan, his parents decided that enough was enough and pulled him from public school for good. 

But to his parents’ dismay, Ryan’s math skills were dismal. They needed help at home but didn’t know what to do. 

2.) Finding Elephant Learning

Out of fierce determination to give Ryan the chance to love learning math again, his parents invested tons of time and money in finding useful resources. His mom adds, “We have no savings now. But we’re determined to help him rise and step into his purpose.” 

Ryan’s parents heard of Elephant Learning and scholarship opportunities by word of mouth. They quickly enrolled Ryan and hoped for the best.

Short Term Memory Loss Couldn’t Stop Christina From Learning Math With Elephant Learning

By Elephant Learning | Case Study

Summary

Christina* (not her real name) has an unidentified learning disability which causes short term memory loss. Difficulties remembering short term information made learning mathematics at homeschool difficult until she started using Elephant Learning as a supplement.  

1.) Challenges

For Christina, math time always meant tears. Low self-esteem due to her disability made learning even harder. She was held back twice in 1st grade and continued to move slowly through middle school. Even though Christina was an 8th grader, she was still at a 3rd-grade level.  Her mom made the choice to homeschool her instead to help her catch up with extra attention and tutoring happening twice a week. 

2.) Finding Elephant Learning

Christina’s tears at math time fueled her mom to find anything that would help. She realized her daughter wanted to excel past the frustration and anxiety and finally learn mathematics.  After reading reviews and case studies about the success that other students with learning disabilities had on Elephant Learning, Christina’s mom decided to sign her up.

According to her mom, Elephant Learning has no doubt helped boost Christina’s confidence. Both finally see a light at the end of the tunnel.
