Comments from a parent about Stepping 4words Learning Center:
“We didn’t know what to do. We knew that our daughter was struggling in school but we really did not know why. She is very bright and articulate but that was not translating to her school work. A friend of ours recommended Stepping 4words Learning Center. We called and talked with Dana. She recommended we come in for an assessment.
When we brought up the idea of going to a tutor with our daughter, she flat out refused. Tutors are for the kids who are not smart. However, as per Dana’s recommendation we quickly changed our conversation with our daughter to: Let’s go meet Lark, and spend a couple minutes with Coral who does the assessment. Firstly, our daughter got very excited by the very cool heritage building and friendly atmosphere. Then she fell in love with Lark, the Stepping 4words learning assistance dog. Instead of reading to Coral, she read to Lark. She then happily went on to do the rest of the assessment with Coral. Our daughter was then enrolled in their tutoring program and she loves going every week.
Stepping 4words are not tutors. They are self-esteem builders, problem solvers and truly blessed with a special skill. Our daughter has been diagnosed with a learning difference. She is just as smart as the other students at school, but she learns in a different way. Stepping 4words helped her discover her learning style. She is doing very well in school, homework is no longer a family battle and she loves learning. We know she’ll have life-long challenges with her learning differences, but we are now armed with the tools and strategies to conquer them.”
