teacher and student with some learning disabilities

What is a Learning Disability?

A learning disability (LD) refers to a brain wired differently. Learning Disability is classified as a neurological disorder, affecting a person’s ability to store, process and access information. This learning disorder used to be referred to as a dyslexia, although dyslexia is only one of the seven different types of LDs. Depending on the type, a person experiences difficulty in either reading, writing, spelling, math, speaking, listening or a few areas combined.

What a Learning Disability is NOT

A learning disability is not stunted development. Students diagnosed with LD are bright, capable, and many are high achievers in academic and professional fields with proper intervention in place. A learning disability is not falling behind due to missed periods of school, non-timely intervention or lack of support at school and home. A learning disability does not happen because students are paying limited attention. LDs are diagnosed by a proper psycho-educational assessment where a type of LD is determined and an intervention path is offered.

Direct Instruction method

Direct Instruction (DI) is a defined, free of misinterpretation, teacher-led method based on clear key principles. It is believed that every child can learn and improve academically at their own pace when presented with best teaching and materials. In other words, DI proves that students, if properly taught, can learn. Supported by decades of research, this method of teaching reading, writing, spelling and math has demonstrated to deliver results superior to other methods of instruction.

Our Direct Instruction programs are typically implemented 1-on-1. Your child’s tutor ensures mastery of the concept and only moves forward if full grasp of material is achieved. Our students make best progress if this kind of intervention is used.

I am so happy we found this Learning Centre! When the pandemic started - my husband and I decided our daughter would be having one-on-one online tutoring this year and it was the best decision we've ever made! We have such an amazing teacher from this centre - Stephanie! My daughter loves her! My daughter progressed dramatically in Reading, Writing, Speaking, Math, Science! Before we came to this centre - my daughter didn't like reading at all and almost couldn't read. Now she easily reads books in English and says Reading is her favourite thing now! The quality of teaching is on the highest level! I love teacher's personal/individual approach to my child! They have such interactive, engaging, interesting classes! My daughter is so sad that Summer Break has begun and she will not see her teacher for the whole summer! She can not wait for September to come - to resume classes with her favourite teacher!

I was referred to Read Write Think by an ABA practitioner, who worked with my child. I was looking specifically for Reading tutor, and supplementation in Math and Language. My child finished finished Gr.5 not reading (at all). I see huge progress now, after just 5-6 month with Read Write Think, my child already started to read, which is really a big milestone for us.I can’t really speak high enough about this company, as what they do is truly outstanding! Our tutor Patricia is very gentle, patient and highly skilled. My child is not always cooperative, but she found a way to work with him almost from the day 1. Any feedback and suggestions, that I may have, are immediately taken and applied in the lessons. We have both, home and center-based sessions, and my child really enjoys participating in both!Highly recommend Read Write Think services!

My 9-year-old daughter has participated in both camp programs run by Read. Write. Think. as well as a Learning Pod program to supplement her virtual elementary school curriculum. I can’t speak highly enough about how great the teachers are and what a comfortable and engaging learning environment they create for kids. Emma really enjoyed the program and looked forward to going to lessons every time. She enjoyed all subjects, including Math, English, French and Social Studies and learned so much. If you’re looking to enhance and support your kids’ school education, this is the place for you! Highly recommend!!

We were recommended Read Write Think learning Center by a friend of ours who has her kids in the center.We were looking for professional home schooling/tutoring help for our 14 year old son. When pandemic started and kids were sent home, he got very discouraged and demotivated with his school work. Realizing that the school situation would not be resolved for a long time, I went to seek help.Yuliana and I had a meeting and talked about our needs to establish the right support for our son. I am so grateful to have met her, she is so knowledgeable and experienced and compassionate. She heard my frustration and understood what we issues we are facing. She coached me on how to get started and we began our journey at Read Write Think Center.We have now been with the Center for two full terms. We are getting exactly the kind of unique and personal support my son needs.Finally, as I parent, I found comfort in fact that I am not alone in this, and there are outstanding and caring professionals like Yuliana, who care about my son and his progress as much as I do.We are super grateful for the hard work everyone does to keep us going and would recommend Yuliana and her team without a slight hesitation.

I was recommended to Read Write Think for my daughter, as they have the Mastery Reading program. We have been with Read Write Think for just a few months and I have seen a significant improvement on her reading. The staff are so kind and accommodating and my daughter looks forward to each session with her tutor. Thank you to Read Write Think for the continued support you give her.

If you are looking for a personalized approach from the owner and each one of the teachers, this is the place that provides it. In addition to high level instructions including effective methodologies, the students get materials adjusted to their own progress on a weekly basis. I was impressed with the level of the feedback to the parents that allows to achieve great results in a short period of time. Very flexible to accomodate schedule changes, very experienced and friendly teachers. One pace for a variety of learning subjects. Highly recommended!

I highly recommend the Read Write Think program to anyone whose kid needs a little extra boost or serious help with their reading and writing.Our son didn't know how to read or write when he started Grade 1 (although he attended SK) and was feeling stressed about it. After a little online search we were lucky enough to find Julia, the owner of the Read Write Think program, who came to our house and did a quick assessment of our son. Julia informed us that he would catch up to his classmates by the end of the the school year, which he did much earlier.Julia paired us up with Maddie - a wonderful, patient, experienced and fun teacher who my son loves a lot. Maddie came to our house once a week for an hour and did a great job keeping our son engaged and interested, which was not an easy feat at times :).The materials the program provides are also exceptional and at the same fun (some stories made me laugh out loud).Julia, Maddie and the whole Read Write Think program are amazing! And we will continue with their services next year as well.

As a parent, my kids' learning is very important to me. Even at their young age, I know how important it is to support their needs at school and enhance it at home. That's why I'm happy to have found Read Write Think because their reading, writing, and language & spelling programs have really helped not just my kids' grades, but more importantly, their attitude towards learning through mastery of these core skills.
