Why do children come to see Dr. Markus?

Their parents and teachers notice a discrepancy between their test taking ability and daily performance.

They don't like school.
They've learned helplessness and cannot think or perform on their own.
They're disorganized.
They have trouble learning math.
They have difficulty organizing their thoughts either verbally or in writing.
They have low self-esteem.
They haven't learned how to learn.
They have no intellectual curiosity.

The children's program focuses on the process of learning, moving children from passive recipients of information to active generators of ideas. Dr. Markus's exercises teach new ways of processing information, which can be applied in school as well as every aspect of their lives.

Students gain better problem solving abilities and learn alternative strategies for decision making, as well as logical thinking and organizational skills. These skills all lead to better study habits, test-taking skills, and grades. The program helps provide insight and competence in difficult school subjects and helps students identify their analytical strengths and weaknesses. In addition, the successes they achieve in this program increase their self-esteem and confidence.
