Applied Learning Processes
Applied Learning Processes is a learning center providing research-based diagnosis and treatment for learning difficulties experienced by children, adolescents and adults. Our methods are effective for those whose problems have not responded to other methods because they stimulate the basic sensory-processing deficits that underlie language disorders. Our methods are systematic, explicit, and multi-sensory and fall under the umbrella of Orton-Gillingham techniques as defined by the International Dyslexia Association. We have been successfully implementing Lindamood-Bell® concepts and techniques since 1989.
