Are you worried about your child's school performance? Is she bright but frustrated with school? Does he work hard but doesn't get the grades he should? Do you see signs of 'giving up' or losing interest in learning?
Many factors contribute to school success. Sometimes students need to gain goal-setting and study skills. Some also benefit from learning how to 'do school,' including working with parents and teachers to meet their needs and reach their goals. And some students struggle because they experience learning challenges such as dyslexia or ADHD. 
Dr. Doug Leber offers expert support and instruction for all students who struggle with school. He builds confident, self-directed learners prepared for success in school and life.  

Students learn what skillful learners need to know: effective study and test-taking strategies, goal-setting, and realistic long-term planning. They develop organizational skills that work, so homework and projects are done well, completed on-time, and turned in before deadline.

His multi-sensory approach provides a remedy for dyslexia and keeps students with ADHD engaged.

For dyslexia, Dr. Leber uses the Orton-Gillingham approach to instruction, which has years of research supporting its effectiveness. The Orton-Gillingham approach is explicit, structured, and carefully sequenced. Depending on their needs, students move as fast as possible through the curriculum or as slow as necessary to acquire fluency and automaticity. By experiencing this multi-sensory, cumulative instruction, students gain a secure foundation for reading, spelling, and writing proficiency. 

For students with ADHD, Dr. Leber acts as a guide and coach, helping students understand how to work with their learning styles and attention challenges to achieve success in school and life.

When students expect failure or struggle, he guides them towards success.
