A Drug Free One-On-One Program Available Year Round

An Alternate Approach... HELP's treatment method and approach is very different from tutoring and remediation in reading, math and other studies. Often the failure to learn effectively is a symptom of underdeveloped processing resulting in difficulty storing and retrieving information. No amount of tutoring or extra parental help can remedy these weaknesses but only adds to the frustration of all.

HELP tests and evaluates an individual's information-processing abilities and identifies the cognitive functions that are slow or immature. These weaknesses can interfere with clear picture of meaning, cause and effect reasoning and can result in poor judgement and fear of failure. The test results can reveal the reasons behind the individual's learning, memory and social difficulties. Steps can then be taken to correct them at the source.

"I started the HELP program mainly because I wasn't doing well in school as well as my parents and I wanted to do. What I've taken away from it was a year of fun, basically. It wasn't a traditional learning style, where you sit down, study...it's completely different. They have you do juggling, ball & stick--ask Susan or Bill about that.

It basically taught myself how to think with both sides of my brain, instead of just my right or my left. And that has been really helpful.

What I plan on taking away from this (experience) is that I want to pursue a career in education and become a teacher for high school students."

"The program at HELP has really changed our lives! Amber is so much more confident and happy, she really believes in herself."
