Sometimes we need a bridge.

Many children face obstacles in their learning.  They might be able to handle some obstacles on their own. However, sometimes a bridge is the best way to help a child get from where they are to where they need to be.

You may have gotten a report from your child’s school that showed they are starting to fall behind, or perhaps your child is just showing signs that they don’t like school and learning is hard for them.  Maybe you help them after school with homework, but they still struggle with the lesson and can’t do the assignment independently.  Once a child starts to fall behind, it can become increasingly difficult for them to catch up all on their own. 

At Enrichment Therapies, we offer a unique program that has helped many children improve their learning experience.  LEAP (Language Enrichment Academic Program) serves as a bridge to help children go from academic frustration to complete readiness.  You can start at any time during the school year and enroll for either full-day or half-day options.  Our classes are small, which enables us to offer an individualized approach where each student is taught with a curriculum tailored for their academic needs and learning style.  Our goal is to equip students with the tools needed to thrive in their chosen educational setting. 

To see what LEAP looks like, go to A Day in the Life of a LEAP Student.

Enrichment Therapy & Learning Center has locations in the Iowa City, IA area and Des Moines, IA area. We provide individual speech-language therapy and tutoring as well as offering small group academic programs.  At Enrichment Therapy & Learning Center our passion is to help kids achieve effective communication skills and gain academic success.  Contact us for more information on how we can help your child succeed.
