We offer a full range of services designed to help your child.
Our Team develops and implements individualized intervention plans for students according to their strengths and needs. By incorporating multi-sensory methods and Socratic questioning, we help students access the sensory-cognitive functions necessary to develop language and literacy skills, thus improving their reading fluency and comprehension.
We have worked with children and their families in the field of education for over 20 years in the greater Phoenix area: Glendale, Peoria, Anthem, Paradise Valley, and Scottsdale. Our diverse team is able to assist children, teens, and adults with Dyslexia and a variety of learning differences.
Van Roekel Learning Center can conduct a range of diagnostic testing to determine what services need to be provided by one of our highly-trained and specialized educators. We screen for various learning differences, such as dyslexia, hyperlexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia.
We are always happy to review and discuss previous test results and feedback you've received from teachers and other providers. Contact us for more information and to schedule your child's diagnostic screening.
