Lee Pesky Learning Center CEO, Dr. Evelyn Johnson, recently spoke with Boise Public State Radio’s Gemma Gaudette about Pathways to Literacy, a program serving as a direct response to school closures amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Johnson is also joined by an LPLC parent, Maria Aguilar, and a tutor of the program, Jack Johnson. When asked…
Lee Pesky had learning disabilities at a time when there was little understanding of common issues like dyslexia, dysgraphia, and ADHD. His family struggled to find the support Lee needed in overcoming his obstacles to learning. They did the best they could with the few resources available at the time, and Lee was able to complete college and become a business owner. After their son passed away in 1995 at the age of 30, Alan and Wendy Pesky founded Lee Pesky Learning Center to honor Lee’s legacy by helping children with learning differences in a way they weren’t able to help their son.
Our vision is to create a pathway to learning for everyone.
Since 1997, we have been working with students, families, schools, and communities to understand and overcome obstacles to learning.
