Classes are now on-line!
Classes at the Thinking and Learning Center are based on a therapy model of intervention. Class size is very small with four to six children. Higher-level thinking skills will be developed and supported in this interactive, small-group intervention that covers research-based reading or math instruction while mediation, Socratic questioning, and strengthening of cognitive functions will serve as the core methodology. Reading or math activities will be utilized as the core content in this dynamic intervention and students’ foundational reading, math, or writing concepts will be strengthened while their thinking, reading, language, writing, math, and/or problem solving skills will be challenged, all within an atmosphere where anxiety is reduced and thinking is maximized.
Reading Class – Phonics through Spelling
Our Reading class – Phonics through Spelling takes the five essential components of reading – phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and reading comprehension – and systematically teaches students using a discovery and sound-based approach to phonics. Each week students will discover spelling patterns for different sounds using therapy methods in the class. Homework is completed each week using the A Reason For Spelling workbooks. This approach to reading and phonics gives a solid foundation while also using proven methods for students with dyslexia.
- Level 1 is offered for students using A Reason For Spelling Level C and Level D
- Level 2 is offered for students using A Reason For Spelling Level E and Level F

Math Games will build and strengthen number sense, math fluency, math vocabulary, and problem-solving strategies. Students who need to master basic number sense skills, those who rely on procedural understanding (steps to do a problem) without a conceptual understanding (why you do the problem-solving steps and how to problem solve) would benefit the most from this program. Also, students who do not remember the steps in problem-solving or have trouble with math facts would benefit!
Level 1 – Basic Operations – offers addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and how to learn math facts fast.
Level 2 – Math involving fractions, decimals, percent, and review of multiplication facts.
