There are several therapeutic approaches which address the learning disabilities; however, there has been little remedial work with adolescents. The objective of this paper is to show the implementation and results of a correction program from the Luria neuropsychological approach in a case of a teenager with a history of learning disabilities and school failure. The article also shows the utility of the qualitative analysis of the electroencephalogram visual appearance changes in the brain after the implementation of the program. The syndromic analysis identified that the central mechanism of insufficient psychophysiological development was the of luck of the regulation and control. The program was designed in order to introduce and organize such mechanism. The results are characterized by systemic positive effects after the revaluation in reading, writing, calculating, and intellectual activity. Favorable changes in the electrical brain activity were also detected after application with the program.
