The IPP program is a system for addressing learning difficulties. It works to improve attention span, memory, comparison/contrast thinking, eye-hand coordination, systems reasoning and other skills essential to the learning process, helping students perform better in school and in life.
Students are referred to an IPP lab because they are having difficulties learning. The students may be children in school classrooms, teens in training courses, adults in literacy classes, or any other situation where they are failing to learn the material that is being presented.
IPP works the same in all these contexts because IPP is not tutoring. Tutoring is more intense teaching. IPP, on the other hand, is learning therapy. It deals directly with the causes of learning problems, which helps your students get back on track more quickly!
When a student is referred to an IPP lab, he or she is given a number of assessments that cover cognitive abilities, sensory motor functions, and focusing skill functions. The purpose of these assessments is not to find out how much the student knows, but to find out why he or she is not learning. The summary of these assessments determines the cause(s) of the student's learning problem. These causes are specifically identified and matched with individual training plans for the student.
The last step in the IPP process is addressing the learning problem(s). The training program for each student is very specific so that it can meet his or her needs. After all trainings have been administered by an IPP technician, the expectation is that the student will be able to return to the instructional situation and progress with much improved performance!

RATES OF SUCCESS
Some learning disabilities are not trainable with IPP, but these instances are rare, and they are almost always organic. We find that nearly all learning disabilities are trainable. IPP is successful more than 90% of the time.
