Background: We are a learning center committed to creating successful independent learners. We assess for various cognitive problems and recommend the appropriate program to meet the needs of the individual. PACE has been a very successful addition to our "toolbox" of program we use to treat learning and attention difficulties. We also use Master the Code. Both programs have also been very successful. I cannot praise the support I have gotten from LearningRx enough. Their whole system could be utilized as stand alone programs that will really make a difference in the lives of the clients you service. I KNOW they work with all ages. Please give me a call or e-mail if I can be of any assistance to you.

3480 Catalina Drive
Cumming, GA 30041
Background: I have been teaching special education classes for 2.5 years working with intellectually disabled students, students with ADD, learning disabilities, and emotional and behavior disorders. I was really discouraged to see that as a teacher in the school system, I was not making a huge difference in increasing skills for my students due to lack of one-on-one time to work on deficient cognitive areas. Through PACE, I have seen major difference in my students learning because I am able to work on the underlying problems. I currently have 6 trainers, which cover Forsyth and Cherokee counties. I have been a provider for one year and this is the growth that I have experienced already! This is without very much advertising, only word of mouth and the national referral website. This 2001-2002 school year will be my last year as a special ed teacher and I am going to provide PACE services full time. When parents and teacher see the differences in their child and get excited about it, word spreads. It is so exciting to see the changes in my students and their excitement as well as the parents.
