Who We Help
‘Never settle for someone else’s definition of who you can be.’

We understand that labels can be helpful to identify challenges when they lead to understanding. Nevertheless, we believe they should not define or place limits on those who think and do things differently! Individuals with learning, focus, or social challenges have just as much value and as many positive traits as others without these difficulties. Our students come from all walks of life and just as no two snowflakes are alike, they vary in ages, behaviors, and characteristics.
ADD & ADHD
ADDvantages Learning Center provides training to help struggling students of all ages with attention difficulties and ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder)

These skills work together for learning to be enjoyable and with ease. Inefficiency in even one area can cause learning to become very difficult.
Speech & Language
Are you dealing with a communication disorder such as stuttering, impaired articulation, a language impairment, or a voice impairment that adversely affects a child’s educational performance.
Do you or your child frequently bump into things, lose balance, fall, and have poor eye-hand coordination or difficulty with writing? Have you attributed those problems to clumsiness?
Non-Verbal Learning Disability
NVLD is a brain-based disorder and is believed to be a problem of processing differences in the left and right hemispheres of the brain. The main symptom is difficulties with social skills and relationships.
Are you a new home-schooler? Eager and apprehensive but not sure where to start? Maybe you’re a seasoned home-schooler, but you know your child needs something more.
By this point you’ve most likely identified the source of difficulties, are receiving accommodations, had some intervention, or your child may be on medication. College can be a rude awakening for parents and students.
It’s common for those with TS to isolate from embarrassment, rejection, and the sheer exhaustion of suppressing tics for hours to eventually be released in privacy.
The good news is that there is a difference between memory decline and dementia! Not all memory loss is from medical brain diseases (Alzheimer’s and dementia).
