Tiegerman's Approach to The Most Common Learning Disabilities

Are you concerned that your child is having learning difficulties that will make it difficult for them to excel in school? With over three million children having a disability in 2019 alone, your child deserves to enjoy the same opportunities as other children. At Tiegermen, our personalized school curriculum addresses your child's unique needs to help them reach their full potential.

Which Major Learning Difficulties Does Tiegerman Focus On?

While many difficulties can make learning more challenging, Tiegerman focuses on language and autism spectrum disorders. According to Reading Rocket, 85% of students identified with a learning disability experience trouble with language learning. Additionally, children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are more likely to experience problems developing language skills compared to their peers.


Some common language learning disabilities in children include:


  • Dyslexia: trouble reading words
  • Dyscalculia: difficulty understanding numbers or math equations
  • Dysgraphia: or trouble expressing yourself in writing
  • Poor nonverbal communication skills
  • Stuttering
  • Selective mutism


Language is one of the most important building blocks in a child’s development, which makes it crucial that they receive the support they need from an early age.

How The Tiegerman Learning Method (TLM) Will Help Your Child

If your child is on the autism spectrum or has problems developing their language skills, the Tiegerman Learning Method (TLM) may be able to help them.


Unlike traditional programs, the TLM curriculum focuses on encouraging your child to express their thoughts and feelings constructively. By giving our students a chance to bring their experiences into the classroom, they are more likely to start conversations and develop their language skills naturally. Our teachers also adjust to each student's comprehension to ensure they can learn at their own pace. This includes paraphrasing or simplifying lessons so all students can fully comprehend them.
