From Real Life to Real Results

Dr.Avi Jakubowicz, developer and creator of “V-Secret” Learning Enhancement System for the Developmentally disabled. The secret emanates from Avi’s personal life experience. Dr.Avi younger brother, Raz is severely handicapped. He learns and communicates with the world through the use of a special keyboard and computer program. Avi’s strong background in music, education, psychology as both composer and musician, combined with a lifetime experience in living with, and teaching the handicapped led to the creation of the “V-Secret” method.


The “V-Secret” Method
... A World of Harmony
The “V-Secret” method can be individually tailored to meet the needs of developmentally disabled children as young as 1-11/2 years of age to handicapped adults. All can be taught in harmony with a unique interactive musical program. The program for the very young begins with teaching colors. Each color is correlated to a particular musical sound either the instructor or the child can initiate. Similarly with shapes, which correspond to musical sounds. The next step is the somewhat more complex interrelationship among sounds, forms and colors. In teaching the numbers, the fingers and sounds are connected. Continual change and variation in the method help improve the child’s thinking and analysis skills. The children not only learn to distinguish among the colors, shapes, numbers and sounds, but also gain important concentration, hand-eye coordination, gross motor, memorization, musical instrument playing and other skills.

In accordance with the above, and further to the “V-Secret” method, Dr.Avi Jakubowicz teaches in a new and subsequent method, by which the child can learn to read, write and speak in an improved, quick and efficient way.
