What are the steps?
1. Assess and Evaluate - The critical learning years are precious and few. Too often, we are inclined to delay an assessment or intervention for a struggling child because we think time will solve the problem. Many teachers and parents are too quick to blame laziness or lack of motivation when a child cannot learn to read or cannot follow directions. The research is clear and compelling - children with learning disabilities can be identified early and with amazing accuracy. Learning Arts Center assesses and evaluates each child. The evaluation determines child's strengths and weaknesses and the specific needs of the child.
2. Develop an action plan - A comprehensive educational plan is formulated to meet the needs of the individual child. The child may need special accommodations in school. Some children need preferential seating or more visual and/or tactile cues in order to learn. The research also confirms that early use of the scientifically proven methods and materials for a particular disability are the best practices for remediating a learning problem. One method of teaching or one basal reading series does not work optimally well for all children. For example, Dyslexic children need a multisensory reading program and extended repetition and practice. More of the same program that did not work before is not the answer.
3. Provide Support Services - An individualized program of Educational Therapy in conjunction with school accommodations/modifications and home support provides the final step in the process. Usually a meeting at school with the teacher and other professionals who are involved in the child's education formalize the accommodations and/or modifications necessary. Finally, there is a regular and consistent program of Educational Therapy using the unique strategies, materials, and methods tailored for individual success.

Ask about the special summer rates and summer programs for catching up in reading and/or math or for improving writing or study skills. Summer is a great time for kids to improve or learn the skills they struggled with all year and to prepare them for the coming school year in the fall. Many children forget skills they do not use.
