How To Get Your Student Started with Stowell Learning Center:

  1.  The first step in our process is to attend an information meeting (Parent Information Night) where we explain exactly what we do and give you a chance to get all of your questions answered.  What we do is very different from traditional tutoring or special help at school. Our goal is to correct the learning or attention challenges so that students can work comfortably and independently at school.
  2. The next step is to schedule an assessment so that we can explore both the academic challenges and the underlying learning/ processing skills that are needed to learn comfortably and efficiently.
  3. Following the assessment, we will sit down with you and explain exactly what we saw in the assessment, what is getting in the way of your child’s learning or attention, and give you a roadmap for what needs to be done to dramatically improve or correct the problem.
  4. Then we will look at schedules together and get your child scheduled and started.

Misdiagnosed by Two Professionals

“My daughter was diagnosed by her pediatrician and special education testing as ADD but Stowell Learning Center diagnosed her as being dyslexic. When she finished the summer session at SLC, she was no longer reading at 1st grade level but instead was reading at 5th grade level.

By the time Raquel reached high school she was a 4.0 student and ranked 25th in her junior class of 652 students. She graduated in 2005 with 4.0. She is currently attending University of Nevada, Reno and will graduate in 2010 as Geological Engineer maintaining a 3.95 grade point average.

The techniques that were taught to my daughter as an 8 year old still remain as her success tools.  She has never given up even if it was difficult.  She is a very intelligent young woman and has astonished my husband and I.  We are so lucky that we found Stowell Learning Center when she was a 3rd grader because without your techniques, I believe she wouldn’t have the confidence she has now.

Thank You!

P.S. I hope her story will continue to give hope to these special children who learned in a different way.”
