People with learning disabilities can learn; they just learn differently. They need to be taught in ways that address those differences.
At the Cooper Learning Center, we specialize in providing direct, explicit, systematic, multisensory instructional techniques tailored to meet each student’s individual learning needs.
Academic intervention is provided by CLC Learning Therapists trained and mentored to ensure that they meet particular standards of excellence created by the Center.
Regular communication by the Learning Therapist keeps parents up-to-date on the progress of their child and provides important feedback.

Programming options include:
Children with moderate to severe dyslexia typically receive intensive remedial reading instruction as a part of their school day. This contracted, intensive remediation may be provided by the school district. We coordinate these contracts with the school’s Child Study Team. Currently, we have contracts with more than 10 school districts and many private schools in the region.
Our after-school and summer learning therapy incorporates research based best practices in targeting key areas for success in reading development: phonemic awareness, phonological decoding, fluency, vocabulary and reading comprehension. We focus on the skill development that best supports your child’s specific academic needs.
Students are taught writing in a structured and multisensory manner. Students practice one specific skill at a time, and layer each new skill upon skills they have already mastered.
Rookie Reader Program (for kindergarten-age children)
The Rookie Reader Program provides kindergarten age children with the early reading skills that build a strong reading foundation. This program helps prevent reading problems before they begin. Children learn phonemic decoding skills and phonemic awareness - the most important factors in becoming a good reader - early. Our experienced multisensory-trained staff engages children in language-based activities such as: sound segmentation, blending and rhyming.
