Who is Dore for?
Dore is for students and adults, athletes and learners, young and old who seek to bridge the gap between their potential and performance. Individuals from 7 to 83 have experienced the benefits of the Dore Program, and you can, too!
Dore is not for everyone, however. In order to ensure that you or your loved one is a suitable candidate for the Dore Program, give us a call! One of our team members will speak with you to determine whether the Dore Program is the right path.
How does it work?
The Dore Program focuses on the part of the brain–the cerebellum–responsible for skill-development and making skills automatic. Clients’ individualized activities deliver just the right challenge to the cerebellum to improve the efficiency of this particular area. The result is an improvement in the ability to learn and to process information that may have proven difficult in the past. Reading, writing, concentration, and balance are a few of the key areas where improvements are likely, and many experience benefits to their consistency and confidence!
The first step is to give us a call! We will spend some time discussing your situation to complete a brief screening questionnaire to learn about your or your student’s history, to hear about your needs and goals, and to determine your suitability for the program.
Once your suitability is determined, we can then schedule an appointment to come to our office for an assessment. You can expect to spend about 3 hours with us where we will take you or your student through a series of–fun!–activities designed to gather specific baseline data that one of our program specialists will use to design your own personalized Dore Program!
You will be ready to begin your program the day after you visit us, and you will be guided daily through your own personalized online myDore system to achieve your goals.
