Our goal is to strengthen the foundation of your child’s learning skills so they can better process and absorb the world of information around them. Parents ask us all the time what makes Strategic Learning Centre different from other learning centres. First of all, SLC is a learning clinic; think of the Centre as a doctor’s office for students with learning difficulties. The journey begins with our first meeting. We thoroughly get to know your child by reviewing, among other things, their language and motor development, past and current academic performance and behaviour, and relevant testing that has been done. We then implement individualized testing to pinpoint your child’s unique needs, followed by a strategic plan to address them. Your child is carefully monitored and evaluated at each stage of their progress.
We also differ from other learning centres in that your child will often begin with remediation in English, French, and math rather than tutoring. Remediation fills in the missing bricks in your child’s foundational abilities by going back and teaching them what they did not learn in previous grades. Like the development of core muscles for your body’s physical performance, developing these core aptitudes are essential for the brain’s ability to perform mental tasks, and achieve success in most educational disciplines.
Our remediation specialists are accredited teachers who have been specially trained to teach our remedial programs.
We understand the range of emotions that brought you here: frustration, fear, hopelessness. We sincerely hope you give us the opportunity to do what we do best: Provide your child with the required tools and skills in order for them to have the best possible future.
