We are Reading/Learning Scientists!

Reading & Learning​ are absolutely brain sciences. The brain must do four things simultaneously to read well: blend, segment, sequence sound and know how the sound to symbol relationships. Then, it has to do all this fluently! No easy task! ​​
We measure, predict, instruct, use systematic and scientific processes, and drive specific outcomes while keeping learning fun, engaging, and meaningful.​​​​

Her mantras: "Just Wait for It" and "Let's Get to Yes!"
When sensory, balance, fluency, accuracy and cognition systems are unstable and disorganized, academic learning is difficult, frustrating, and stifling. As a locally family-owned educational company, we specialize in training students how to practice so they evolve from being dependent learners to independent learners to ultimately being interdependent learners. We serve families whose children/teens do not qualify for services, are on Tier III interventions in school, have failed a grade, have a low high school GPA with limited credits, need end-of-the-year testing for home school and/or need a way to navigate the education process. Some learners sturggle with sensory integration, that affects reading, writing, or math. When they lack confidence in learning, we offer the opportunity to get back on track with interventions and supports that target specific needs. Together our team has over 100 years of educational expertise together. It is the ultimate experience "to watch" a student become an INTERDEPENDENT learner.​​​
