“Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.” – Albert Einstein
Every child is unique and every brain is unique. If your child struggles in school, his or her brain may not have developed the skills necessary for school success. This doesn’t mean it’s a bad brain, it means it is untrained in some of the skills that school requires. These skills include memory, attention, processing rate, listening skills, visual processing, logic and reasoning, etc. (If it were well-trained, your child would be thriving in school.)
Read the following list. How many of these items apply to your child’s learning problems?

Accomplished Learning Centre offers programs for these kids, too!)
As a therapeutic learning centre, Accomplished Learning Centre has access to specialized programs that can really change the way a kid learns. This is very different from traditional learning centres offering academic tutoring (just more teaching). Hence,
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Einstein
Following is a list of common problems that affect a child’s ability to learn in school. Go to our Challenges page to learn more and to get the information you need to do something about improving your child’s future!
“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” – Albert Einstein
If spending more time and effort on schoolwork (doing more homework, getting one-on-one help at school, or an after-school tutor) is not reaping different results, maybe it’s time to look at doing something different!
More teaching is not the solution to learning challenges. The solutions lie in special programs designed to improve thinking and learning abilities. These programs strengthen attention, memory, listening, processing speed, phonological processing, executive function, and other thinking abilities. Accomplished Learning Centre provides these specialized programs for strengthening thinking skills and improving a child’s ability to learn in a regular classroom.
The first step is to contact Accomplished Learning Centre for an assessment in order to find out what’s really going on. Then you will return a few days later for a Parent Consultation to go over the results.
At the Parent Consultation you will get a very good idea of how and why your child is struggling and what can be done about it. We will discuss your child and the problems he or she is having and go over the assessment results in detail. Then, together, we can determine which program or programs would be most suitable for your child’s needs and personality, and your goals for your child and budget.
