SEARCH is a test which helps identify possible learning difficulties and weaknesses in neuropsychological skills basic to reading and language arts programs.
TEACH is a program based on the results of the Search test. It uses instructional methods, including fifty-five task cards, to develop a child academically to succeed in reading and language arts programs. The tasks are grouped in five clusters which include: visual, visual-motor, auditory, body-image, and intermodal skills.
Search and Teach sessions are typically 45-60 minutes in length, with a frequency of two times per week. These sessions include a variety of techniques designed to address students’ specific areas of difficulty, particularly the perceptual weaknesses identified in the Search Scan.
