Since 1969, Learning Foundations has helped thousands of students in San Antonio overcome their learning challenges to become confident and successful learners. Our message has always been that anyone with learning and attention challenges, including dyslexia, can learn to become successful.

Through pre and post-testing data for all our students, we have shown significant increases in their cognitive learning skills. But our statistics are really just that. Statistics. What we care about, what makes us come to work every day with a smile, is knowing we are making a difference in children’s lives every day.

We also want to share some of our success stories and parental reviews with you. We are very proud of all of our students. We are proud to see the accomplishments they make as they move successfully through their lives.

Core Learning Skills and Dyslexia Program

Gabriella
"As a parent and Homeschool teacher, it can be frustrating to know how to best help your child who has a learning difference. Learning Foundations has helped greatly with that challenge. Starting with the initial testing (Kudos Mrs. Leslie!) and the development of a tailored program, Learning Foundations matched her with a great teacher for her personality. Most of all, everyone has been patient, encouraging and at the same time challenged her to achieve more than she thought she could." - Kylie B.

Cognitve Skills Program

Tatiana
"Tatiana has increased memory, improved motor skills, and improved self-esteem. Learning Foundations has helped our homeschool days to flow much more easily. We have seen a dramatic increase in her self confidence. " - Anne W.

Cognitive Skills Program

Rafael
"We want to thank you for helping us reach the person inside of our youngest son. We always knew that he had more to give, and are ecstatic at the improvements we have seen in our son.. We were skeptical at first and didn't think that we would notice any changes, but gone are the days of having to struggle with him to get homework and chores completed." - Belinda H.

Sensory Processing and Dyslexia Programs

Kevin

Cognitive Skills Program

"The cognitive program has truly helped my child in many areas. He has learned how to focus and concentrate better. We have seen improvements in his spelling as well as in the area of sports. He now understands not only why it is important to be focused, but how he can achieve that. Many of the activities practiced in the program carry over to academic areas. Reading was not a concern for him when we began the program, but now he is even more fluent and thee cognitive at which he reads has improved. I have recommended this program to several parents."

Dyslexia Program

Samuel
"Samuel no longer refers to himself as "not smart". He used to avoid being in any situation where he might be asked to read, because he was embarrassed. Now he goes to school without complaint and his teacher reports that he always puts forth a good effort in class. It is also apparent that everyone who works there genuinely cares about the students." - Michele S.

Cognitive Skills Program

Trey
"The cognitive program was very challenging yet fun. Trey was mentally tired after each session but was ready to work on his assignments at home. The cognitive trainer was the best! She truly cared about the students. Her love for children was east to see. She made each session fun and even though some sessions were extremely hard for Trey, Trey said on the last day that he was happy to graduate, but sad to leave his trainer. What an endorsement from a seven-year-old! We look forward to seeing the changes in Trey’s attitude toward school. His attitude has already improved more than we expected." - Debra

Cognitive Skills Program

Andrew M.
"I would recommend the cognitive program. I have seen a great improvement in my child's self-esteem. He is more enthusiastic about reading and writing papers for school. His concentration on his school work and homework has improved. He is also more sure of himself when answering questions in school."

Cognitive Skills Program

"Currently, it is too early in the school year to tell how affective and successful the cognitive program has been for my child. One of the things I can surely say is that this program is worth the try for any child who is struggling in school. Some of the successes I’ve seen from my daughter is an improvement in her memory skills and her motivation towards her school work. " - Jaime P.

Cognitive Skills Program

Andy
"The cognitive program has helped Andy with goal setting and realizing his potential to reach those goals. Cognitive program has also helped with his reading skills and most of all his self-confidence. " - Rose B.

ADHD Program

"We had run out of options as far as medications for our daughter’s ADHD. The cognitive program was great because it was a non-medication alternative that produced significant improvement in our daughter’s math work at school-precisely the area that she was having the most problems in. cognitive produced great results when nothing else was working! " - Jon

Cognitive Skills Program

Michael
"Michael is no longer depressed and no longer seems to feel hopeless. He is able to stand in front of the class and read as he could never do before starting the cognitive program. He is full of confidence and is a happier child. The neighbors have commented on Michael’s growth. It has also helped the family unit by eliminating some of the chaos. Michael now sees upcoming projects and deadlines as challenges and is no longer full of fear."

Cognitive Skills Program

Chris
"Chris’ attitude toward school is much more positive. He demonstrates a “can do” attitude and is more willing to work through a problem. His self-esteem about his ability to learn was low at the end of the school year and since completing the cognitive program he knows he can succeed in school."

Cognitive Skills Program

Marilyn
"The cognitive program has given my child more confidence in her reading and comprehension skills. We have seen a great improvement in her school work. Thank you. " - John O.

Cognitive Skills Program

Reading Program

Jackson
"Jackson went from being behind in reading and spelling making 40’s and 50’s to making 90’s on assignments. He seems to be able to concentrate better and get his work done quicker." - Arleen R.

Cognitive Skills Program

Isaac
"Isaac’s self-esteem has improved. He used to think no one cared and he was not able to do anything. He was offended when he was corrected and now he expects to be corrected. His reading had improved as well as his math. He has been able to memorize certain things and keep focus in what he is doing. I’m very pleased that this program was able to help my son. As time goes by I see he uses the skills that the cognitive program has helped him on. I truly recommend this program to any child that is struggling in school like my son Isaac had. " - Gladys C.

Dyslexia Program

"From what I have experienced, I highly recommend the cognitive and Dyslexia program. I have seem an improvement in my son's reading and comprehension. He is coming along very well. He is more confident in himself." - Robert R.

Cognitive Skills Program

Jonathan
"Jonathan was having trouble in school, mainly 4th grade. We started the cognitive program at the end of the 4th grade school year. At the beginning of the program Jonathan started to show improvements in the form of wanting to read books and enjoyed doing the homework from the program. My husband and I were very glad to see that improvement. At the start of the 5th grade Jonathans work, attitude, and learning skills really improved. We are happy with the progress that Jonathan has shown. We would highly recommend this program to our friends because it has made our relationship with Jonathan much happier and easier when it comes to school."

Cognitive Skills Program

Chris
"Chris has his sense of humor back. He doesn’t seem to stress out when assignments appear to be difficult. He is motivated to do school would and is getting up in the morning on his own. Last year he would avoid doing school work all together if it appeared to be difficult. We would often argue about grades. I would have to drag him out of bed every morning to catch the bus, which no longer happens since starting the program."

Reading Program

"Before this program our daughter would take about 2.5 to 3 hours for homework. It was a read struggle to complete her assignments. After the program her comprehension has improved and nightly homework sessions last about 1 hour. Her overall GPA has improved tremendously. Before the program she had a 2.0 average and after the program it went up to a 3.2 GPA. She is reading more books now than she was before she started the program." - Cesar

Cognitive Skills Program

Tim
"Tim has devoted his time to the program. He has learned to decode words. He is reading at a better cognitive and has come a long way since starting the program. We see he still has a long way to go. His trainer worked very hard with Tim to bring him along this far with practice, homework, and drills."

Cognitive Skills Program

Steven
"The improvement that I’ve seen in Steven has been in the area of homework. Compared to the prior year daily homework has reduced significantly. Steven has been completing more of his assignments during class time."

Cognitive Skills Program

Courtney
"Courtney has always had difficulty learning. Because her comprehension skills were so poor, she would “shut down” and not do or complete her work. Homework was “gruesome”. It would take her 45 minutes sometimes before she would even attempt to write something down on paper. She would blow her nose 10 times or sharpen her pencil for 5 minutes, etc. Since she has started and completed the cognitive program, we have seen a complete turn around in her attitude, motivation, and self-esteem. She is getting her work done both at school and home. She still requires some assistance at times, however overall, she has become more independent and will try to do what she can on her own! To see Courtney doing this is a blessing and I would and have recommended this program to others."

Cognitive Skills Program

Vanessa
"Cognitive program had allowed our Vanessa to gain confidence in school with a sharp reduction in spelling mistakes, her first consecutive “A” grades on math exams and an improved ability to express herself in essays. Fortunately, the director warned us that we had to be dedicated by completing our home assignments and not missing appointments. This was somewhat grueling at times and that metronome still occasionally adds reverb in my sleep (set at 120). The trainer was very dedicated and accommodated us even on weekends. We have already sparked interest in the cognitive program program around the teachers lounge at Hobby Middle School through our contact with the teachers and counselors. Any child can benefit from this program, but the ultimate benefactor is one who, for one reason or another, has trouble processing information."

Dyslexia Program

Ashlyn
"I want to start off by saying how wonderful your programs are. I have seen a huge change in Ashlyn this past year. I really do appreciate everything the staff there has done for Ashlyn and our family." - Faith K.

Cognitive Skills Program

Katie
"Thank you for giving Katie her self-esteem and confidence back. She is looking forward to attending SAC in the fall. Thanks for all your loving care because Katie is a more positive and confident student due to your help. Job well done! The friendly and caring atmosphere at Learning Foundations has contributed to her learning and success!"

Cognitive Skills Program

Stephen
"Stephen had a very positive and successful experience with the cognitive program . He was at Learning Foundations receiving some tutoring in math and science, when I mentioned to the director some greater problems he’s had since elementary school. She knew exactly what I was talking about. He was evaluated with an auditory processing difficulty. This was wonderful news, because we knew that he was an intelligent child and working as hard as he could but was feeling like he was running in place. Finally, we identified the problem and could correct it. He had an excellent trainer who worked closely with him encouraging him all the way."

Cognitive Skills Program

Sharde
"This was the best choice I have ever made for Sharde. I see my child's confidence level in reading skyrocket. She enjoyed the exercises as well as the homework assignments given to her. She looked forward to going four times a week during the summer months." - La Tanya A.

Cognitive Skills Program

Lawson
"Lawson enjoys coming to Learning Foundations. Yippy! She can jump rope. We love it here! One big family supporting each other!" - Trienel H.

Cognitive Skills Program

Dusty
"When Dusty started at Learning Foundations, he was failing all his courses except his electives in school. Currently, Dusty passed 7th grade -- his last nine weeks grades being A's and B's. I believe that the programs at Learning Foundations helped him tremendously by giving him confidence in his abilities. The staff is caring and supportive and I would recommend the program to anyone who needs an alternative learning experience. In a nutshell -- my son came back to me." - Jolene B.

Dyslexia Program

Francesca
"Francesca's self-esteem and confidence have greatly improved along with her attitude toward her work. She is happier about doing her work. Her reading, listening, and academic abilities have improved as well. I could not be more pleased with Ms. Merlen! She is a wonderful guide and I truly appreciate her patience! The center environment is truly supportive! I am grateful to all." - Crystal U.

Cognitive Skills Program

Caitlyn
"Reading used to be a chore for Caitlyn, but now she loves to read! She has improved accuracy in reading and spelling and also an improvement in confidence. My child has make tons of progress in just a few short months and is much more confident and excited to learn." - Heidi R.

Sensory Processing and Dyslexia Programs

Paul
"I have noticed a big change in his coordination. His speech has improved and I find the biggest difference in being able to read." - Mercedes R.

Cognitive Skills Program

Cameron seems to find it easier to pick up a book and read. So far this year he has been finishing his work in class. Last year he was bringing home lots of work. He seems to work faster. He sees things in terms of what he can do and how much he can accomplish instead of saying, “I can’t do that” or “That’s going to take too long”. He’ll say, “Mom, I’m going to finish 3 chapters tonight” and he says it with enthusiasm, then he usually accomplishes it. He had a great time coming to Learning Foundations even though it cut into his summer vacation, he thought it was fun. Learning has never been fun for Cameron. I think he will have a great year and great life. Thank you.

Dyslexia Program

I wanted to share Joshua’s results from STAAR this year. Thank you for always continuing to push and have patience with him! You and Learning Foundations has been instrumental... I am so thankful for the support during our initial fight to get him recognized as having dyslexia to the present! Two years ago he passed STAAR reading by 1 question and this year he scored in the 89th!! -Kristen Hall

Cognitive Skills Program

The cognitive skills program at Learning Foundations has made it possible for our son to become an achiever. The problems Joey was having did not just involve his learning skills, but his self-esteem as well. Through the processing skills program and his instructor, Joey was able to overcome or meet the goals that were presented to him. He no longer sees education as being frustrating and overwhelming, nor is Joey the shy boy who would walk with his head down. We were surprised to see such a dramatic change in such a short period of time. Joey is now an outgoing and enthusiastic child. We feel that the results were so quick due to the personalization that the program offered. It emphasized on the specific problems and did not waste time on areas Joey did not need. My husband and I are so grateful that the processing skills program led Joey to achieve his potential. Joey was recently passed to the second grade. We thank God. We feel that it is due to Joey's new method of learning. Within a short period of time I feel he convinced the school that he was able to conquer the first and second grade and any other obstacle put in front of him. We could not be prouder. Joey is now on the right track to success. Thank you.

Dyslexia Program and Sensory Integration

Before coming in to Learning Foundations we had concerns on his attention and focus among other things. We've seen changess on his confidence, academics and on his emotional state. : He is more ready to say "i will try" than "I can't," which is amazing. He is doing so much better on the academics. This week we memorized a bible verse. He was given instructions in speech with multiple directions and was able to successfully complete the task! Learning Foundations has been so understanding, so kind, so helpful, and that is EVERYTHING. We talk about Learning Foundations to anyone who will listen. Not only do you make the children feel loved but you bring back a confidence to parents that was beat up, at least me, you did. -Emily Rose

Cognitive Skills Program

Ryan
Overall Learning Foundations exceeded our expectations for our son Ryan. The individualized assessment kept him on track with what he needed to improve and did not waste time with what he did not. Conferences with the director and trainer made it so communication on Ryan’s progress was open. The skill activities were at the level Ryan needed them to be at. I would recommend Learning Foundations to a friend, relative, or neighbor. - Ryan's mom

Cognitive Skills Program

Seth
"Seth’s greatest improvement since starting the cognitive program has been in math and the increase in speed has helped him a lot in completing homework in a timely manner. However, his spelling is still very poor, and his reading and comprehension still needs improvement. So now I need information on how often to review the cognitive program with him at home to keep it fresh for him."
