Your child's academic education is a foundation for life. Schools almost always set the bar too low for students with learning disabilities. Rarely is a child incapable of accomplishing grade-level skills, and maintaining them. It is critical, however, to use the appropriate tools to provide that success, or the student will fall behind, lose motivation, and ultimately fail.
Struggling children can not afford mediocre progress. They need programs and curriculum with documented scientific research which demonstrates effectiveness. Academic Learning Solutions is informed and stays current regarding instruction that is backed by scientific research-based studies.
