Our core programs focus on literacy, where that term equates to competence. Drawing on our combined experiences as parents, professionals and service providers, our programs are designed to challenge the neuro-muscular and neuro-motor systems of diverse learners. We address the motor challenges that often significantly impact an individual's ability to respond and express the true nature of their cognitive ability. Understanding this, we see beyond the challenges and build a pathway to identify, challenge, nurture, and grow skills towards independent communication for diverse learners to live a more inclusive and fulfilling life.
Over a decade ago a small group of moms challenged the system and started a literacy program outside the norms of public school special education. From those grass-root efforts our non-profit evolved and has been committed to growing fundamental educational skills related to reading, language, and communication with a focus on the connections between the brain and body and how this effects individual neuro-motor systems. This same ideology continues to drive us today. The experiences and successes we've been a part of over the years have only deepened our commitment to bring meaningful educational and social opportunities to individuals, their families, and the community at large. If you have seen "more" in your child and want to explore their true potential, we are here to help.
