ADHD, ADD, and dyslexia didn’t stop Riley and Merryn from learning math, even after the kids transitioned from public to private school.
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.
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.
After only a month playing on Elephant Learning, Riley was able to boost his understanding of algebraic operations by a year and a half! Merryn was able to improve her ability to do fractions and has learned almost two years of math understanding in two months! Though Riley is no longer playing, Merryn continues to and is starting to tackle exponents and negative numbers. In fact, Merryn’s Elephant Age has surpassed her actual age, meaning she’s beginning to learn math concepts ahead of her class!
You may cancel at any time by logging into the website and going to Manage Account > Plans & Payment. There is a cancel button on this screen. We only ask that you complete the month that you are on.
Your student's Elephant Age will go up by 1 year over 3 months if they use the system 10 minutes per day, 3 days per week. If it does not, or if along the way you do not feel your students are making sufficient progress please contact us.
At 3 months if the goal is not achieved, we will either give you 3 months for free with additional person-to-person coaching OR a full refund.
We are not common core. We created our system independently of any other curriculum or standard as a way of "starting over" and "doing it right." Having said that, we cover the essential topics and treat mathematics as a language, so we are compatible with ALL curriculums and standards including common core.
Many parents find common core frustrating and confusing. Our system is straightforward, and our reports allow parents to understand how we intend to teach each subject. We also provide activities that parents can do with their students to take learning outside of the system.
We cover from counting through Algebra. We have seen students as young as 2 years of age achieve success. If you have an older student who is struggling with upper-level mathematics, it tends to be due to a misconception that occurs in Algebra or earlier. Our system will detect gaps in understanding and fill them with activities that were proven by third-party research to teach the concepts effectively.
