Strategic Learning Centre moves to Pointe-Claire
The Strategic Learning Centre, which specializes in helping kids with learning disabilities, recently moved from Dorval to Pointe Claire so it would have a larger space and be able to accommodate more students. “We found a great location in the heart of the West Island that would best meet the needs of students with learning difficulties,” said co-owner David Schipper.
At this centre, students are taught using a three-pronged approach: brain training, remediation and tutoring. The brain training helps students with serious learning difficulties like dyslexia or auditory-processing issues. The remedial programs, which are offered in both English and French, help students with reading and writing, as well as improving their mathematical skills. All the teachers have years of experience working with students with learning difficulties. Summer is a very busy time for the centre, as students often have a lot going on during the school year.
Both Schipper and founder Karen Foley share the same learning philosophy. “If we deal with the root of the problem, the students will be able to complete their class work and write tests,” Schipper said. “It’s not one size fits all. We tailor a plan and a program for each and every student. We are showing them how to learn, so that they can do it on their own.”
The new location is at 189 Hymus Blvd., suite 201, in Pointe Claire.
