“We chose to come to LPLC because of its strong reputation in helping students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities. Before LPLC, our son struggled to read, didn’t find pleasure in reading, and would procrastinate or do the minimum in his work. Our son has made significant progress at LPLC and that has transferred into class and at home. He has built strong confidence in reading and writing. We are thrilled with LPLC – it has changed our son’s life.” – Michelle, LPLC Parent


“My time at the Lee Pesky Learning Center has given me the invaluable opportunity to receive training from knowledgeable and experienced educational specialists. LPLC has taught me how to evaluate each learner as a whole, leveraging strengths to target and support weaknesses. I have learned so much from the experts at LPLC and I feel more prepared to use my training to help students identify and overcome their own obstacles to learning.” – Meagan, Graduate Research Assistant & LPLC Educational Specialist


“LPLC helped us create a school environment that made our children know we cared, and empowered our teachers to address the needs of the whole child.” – Lisa, Principal


“One of LPLC’s students once told me, ‘If you don’t know how to read, you don’t have a life.’ Lee Pesky Learning Center gives life to those who feel lost.” – Dr. Deborah Glaser, LPLC Director of Education and Training, 1996-2002


“LPLC provided foundational reading training to me early in my teaching career. This transformed my teaching and had a ripple effect in our community in how we taught reading and analyzed testing data. The passion LPLC ignited in me for teaching reading has remained constant through the last two decades of my teaching and educational leadership career. Lee Pesky Learning Center made all the difference.”

– Kathy, Principal


“I knew I had some ‘soft spots’ in my reading and writing skills that might keep me from passing my CPA exam. Paula, my teacher a LPLC, taught me strategies I never knew had existed, and I’m proud to say that I passed my exam and successfully started my new job at KPMG!”

– Rahim, LPLC Alumni


“Going to extra instruction wasn’t exactly easy, and I remember feeling exhausted after my intervention time, but I also remember feeling more successful because of the supports I got at Lee Pesky Learning Center, and that really helped me keep going. I am proud that I can achieve at high levels even though it takes a lot of extra work.”

– Julianne, LPLC Alumni & Staff Member

“I was scared, discouraged, and mad at the world. I could not account for the differences between my perceived capabilities and the work I was actually producing. It was intensely frustrating. LPLC provided me with a remarkable gift: it gave me the tools to become the person I am today. The person I always knew I was.”

– Will, LPLC Alumni & Board Member


“Lee Pesky Learning Center has helped me feel confident in reading in front of my class. I’m not afraid to ask questions and I feel success in school.”

– Ollie, Student


My reading skills are below grade level, but I got a copy of The 39 Clues and I really wanted to read it. I asked Debbie, my teacher at LPLC, if we could set a goal for me to read this book. It’s hard, but because Debbie is helping me become a better reader, I’m already halfway through it!” –Cameron, Student
