Supporting a thousand students and families for 17 years!
In many areas across society today, we are taught to embrace our differences, our culture, our history, our appearances...but not always how we learn. At LearningWorks, we view learning on a continuum, each of us learns in a variety of ways. What some would call a "disability", we think of as a "difference", something to be identified, addresses, tackled, and mastered...not an obstacle or deficit that has to hold us back. Each student's strengths are used to help teach them independent and successful learning.
We focus on the whole student, strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, past experiences and future goals...not only what he or she is having difficulty with today. Many people are responsible for helping students learn: the parents, the teachers, school administrators, and even the students themselves. By allowing opportunities for all of those factors to collaborate and address each student's learning differences, the student benefits...and LearningWorks.
