Children learn best when they have interesting things to do and interested people to help them. At the Learning Resource Center, we are interested in helping children succeed. Math and reading skills often are the challenges that hold children back in their classroom settings, and make homework assignments drudgery for children and their families. The Learning Resource Center can help. Children with learning disabilities, such as dyslexia and ADHD, suddenly blossom when assignments are understood and seem workable. Bright children flourish when we help them extend their skills beyond their grade level. Choose success. Call the Learning Resource Center.
