Our Programs

We work one-on-one with each child and their family to develop a plan for diagnosis and remediation. Children graduate from our programs with a keen understanding of their learning strengths and challenges and the tools and strategies to help themselves through high school and beyond. We provide parents with educational consultation and financial planning options to help them advocate for their children and source the best tools for their child.

Advocacy

The whole-life approach to learning disabilities, encompassing the diversity of individual experiences, environment and emotions, provides an ideal perspective for developing self-advocacy skills.

Executive Functioning

Executive functions (also known as cognitive control and supervisory attentional system) are a set of cognitive processes – including attentional control, inhibitory control, working memory, and cognitive flexibility, as well as reasoning, problem solving, and planning.

Intensive Individualized Instruction

Individualized instructions allow our instructors to plan and create specific material to achieve personalized education

Touch-Typing

Some students with Learning Disabilities have problems with their short-term memory. Repetition is a way of “over-learning” which can help with these problems. TTRS uses a multi-sensory approach to repetition learning.

Through the multi-sensory approach, students hear the words using headphones, see the words printed on the screen, and are prompted as to which fingers to press via the on-screen keyboard.

Finally, through the sense of touch, they type out the words and learn to “spell with their fingers”.
