"100% I would recommend LFA to others! I had the pleasure of Director, Rachel Herman teaching my daughter when we first started. Her enthusiasm, knowledge and commitment to my daughter’s success was always the highest. When she opened LFA I was concerned if the other instructors would be as effective. I have worked with three others and they have been nothing but amazing! The program works and great instructors! – L.F. Mom of Barton Graduate #lfatestimonialtuesday #dyslexiasu

“My heart is overflowing with gratitude! I am so, so very thankful we found LFA! Our experience has been wonderful! Our tutors were mellow, patient and kind.

My daughter has multiple complex learning and other disabilities, which made reading a seemingly impossible goal and feat. She became engulfed by anxiety and started avoiding books all together. We met with Rachel and I appreciated her clarity and expertise in explaining my daughters multi-layer challenges and the work that lay ahead. She was direct, honest, and made no hollow promises. Her serious approach reassured me that she’s a true educator, worthy of our trust. The gre

“I was struggling with the fluency of my reading, my writing, sounding out words and spelling them. I went to LFA to work on the struggles I had, so I don’t worry about taking a test and getting stuck. I noticed over time I could read a text of some sort and understand the meaning and go deeper into it. I also saw more accuracy in my spelling capacity. This overall helped me read and write better. Before LFA, I was not a prodigious reader and didn’t enjoy sitting down just to
"LFA isn’t all rainbows and unicorns. It’s a lot of hard work and there have been bumps in the road. My daughter fought going to LFA after about six months and Rachel and I worked together to overcome it. There are parent frustrations of wanting the path to move faster or to teach specific things sooner, but I understood that just because I can’t see it working in the traditional sense, it was working. There are also temptations to stop because my daughter was doing well at s
“We have been very thankful to have worked with Learning for All, and our daughter has always enjoyed going and working with all of tutors. LFA has been instrumental in the progress that she has made, and we are so appreciative of all the energy and effort that all the LFA staff has put toward our daughter (and our family too). Thank you again for everything – LFA has AMAZING staff and the services LFA provides are priceless.” -K.O., mom of a 5th grader #lfatestimonialtuesday

"LFA provided for my son, what I could not and made our homeschooling much more bearable! My son has grown exponentially and is a different student than 3 years ago. His confidence in his ability “to do” school has always been low, but in these last 3 years I have seen that change! His reading, both aloud and silently have improved so much! Although still a struggle, he is able to read and study on his own in many instances! And amazingly, his writing, creatively and, especia
“After about a year of working with LFA's amazing tutors, my 10-year-old daughter has made significant progress, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Through her tutoring sessions she is acquiring all the right tools to help her manage her academics through the challenges she faces from dyslexia and thrive in that environment. Aside from the academic achievements she has accomplished through her hard work, the most significant transformation is her level of confidence
“Learning for All has been an exceptional experience for our daughter. When she was diagnosed with dyslexia in the 11th grade, we felt at a loss for how to help her so late in the game. We were very relieved when our daughter became excited and started looking forward to going to her sessions with Jennifer. She is gaining confidence, understands herself and her abilities better, sees where she can grow and has hope for the future. I highly recommend Learning for All, I don’t

"When I met Rachel I just knew this was the place to help my son. In elementary school he just couldn’t seem to get the hang of reading. The first couple of years we chalked it up to him not focusing enough to be interested. However, by 4th grade we knew we needed a second opinion, and had him tested, resulting in a diagnoses of dyslexia. Rachel instantly put me at ease with the journey my son was going to take through elementary, middle, and even into high school. Schools ca

“Before I came to Learning For All I could barely spell four letter words. My reading was awful. School in general was hard. Both my LFA tutors, Jenn and Dave were great. It wasn't boring, they made it fun. It has helped me a lot with my auditory memory. Now my spelling is much better. My reading is much more fluent. I read a full chapter book for the first time at LFA. School is so much easier now.” D.W. Barton graduate #lfatestimonialtuesday #dyslexiasupport #dyslexiaeducat
The brains of dyslexics are wired differently. On the upside, dyslexics think outside the box in a non-linear way, in pictures, not words. The advantages of dyslexia are extensive, but they often remain untapped if dyslexic students don’t have access to quality special education services.

“My younger son has also made many improvements since attending Learning for All. He has gone from refusing to read anything to reading out loud with confidence. He asks less for someone to read for him and now slowly sounds out words and finger spells for his writing. His teacher commented that she had never seen anyone bridge such a large gap in such a short amount of time." -S.S., mom of 5th grader and 3rd grader #lfatestimonialtuesday #dyslexiasupport #dyslexiaeducation #
"Before I started at Learning for All, I couldn't read three-letter words. My mom would read books and stories to me. After two years of going to LFA three times a week and doing Barton and some thinking skills activities, I'm reading any book I want. I can now read subtitles of movies that went by too quickly before. I've read all seven Harry Potter books and the Cursed Child play, multiple Percy Jackson books, The Hunger Games, Peter and the Starcatchers, as well as some Jo
