Learning Enhancement Centers traces its roots to 2002, when Christina Carson, a Special Education teacher specializing in students with learning disabilities, founded the first center in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Since then, Learning Enhancement Centers has helped thousands of students strengthen their cognitive skills, and improve their grades and their confidence in all endeavors.
Why Choose Learning Enhancement Centers?
Traditional education techniques are based on the idea that learning challenges cannot be overcome. If a student can’t read, for example, you read to him or her.
At Learning Enhancement Centers, we believe that with the right training, the brain can overcome any learning challenge.
All of our staff members are trained in our techniques, which help students of all ages overcome a myriad of challenges that include dyslexia, ADD and auditory disorders.
Our approach, however, is not one-size-fits all. Although all of our programs are based on the same philosophy, they’re adjusted to the individual struggles of each student.
Academic and social success depends upon a strong base of cognitive processing, or learning skills. These include skills such as:
Core Learning Skills
These are basic movement, visual, and auditory skills that help children develop a sense of self, internal organization, and body and attention awareness and control.
Challenges in this area might show up as follows:
These are skills such as attention, memory, auditory and visual processing (how we think about and understand things that we see or hear), processing speed, language comprehension, and phonemic awareness (the thinking process critical to reading that supports learning and using phonics).
Problems in this area may show up as:
Executive Function Skills
This is our personal manager that guides and directs our attention and behavior. It helps us reason, problem solve, organize, and make decisions.
Problems in this area may appear as follows:
After working to address lower-level skills on the Learning Skills Continuum, we use evidence-based academic programs to close the gap in school performance. Our academic programs are designed to develop fluency in skills from a foundational level all the way up to grade-level proficiency.
