Empowering Learning


What makes Empowering Learning’ s unique approach so different?

We work with those who have various Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) diagnoses, looking past the diagnosis to helping people use their fabulous skills to transform any limiting symptoms they have.

The visual sense is the fastest system we have for learning and is the natural way young children learn – using their imagination.

Empowering Learning is focused on what people can do rather than what they can’t do.

Empowering Learning teaches people how to get into the best emotional state for learning.

Families are engaged whenever possible.

Teachers learn how students learn visually, incorporating a full multi-sensory learning experience.

Empowering Learning has studied how people without learning challenges think and behave.

The philosophy is a coaching person-centered approach.
