This is an oustanding organization that provides education to those young students who are having difficulty with their reading and language skills. Their success rate has been outstanding.

The funds that are raised are not diluted by large executive salaries or overhead but are directed
to the teaching and mentoring of the students.

Lee Pesky Learning Center through their research based training programs called "Building Blocks for Literacy" and "Building Blocks for Math" have been very critical in developing our instructional/curriculum maps for our three year olds and four year olds. Cristianne Lane and Mary Jo Sturges-Prokop assisted our team in increasing our knowledge base in these areas with on site training, follow-up and wonderful resources to use with our kiddos. The best part was it did not cost us anything because it was paid for by grants LPLC wrote and received from the Federal Department of Education. Nampa School District early childhood special education appreciates the leadership in early literacy and early math LPLC has taken to move our community's capacity to provide quality early childhood education for all preschoolers in our state of Idaho.

As the Education Coordinator for our program I have had the opportunity to both attend trainings and send teachers to trainings offered through Lee Pesky. We have been privelged to go through the Building Blocks for Literacy and the Math for All workshops over the past three years. These trainings have been comprehensive in planning, materials and subject matter. The cost has either been scholarshiped or quite nominal, remoing the financial consideration fromthe decision to attend. The hands-on resources included in the trainings have made implementing the strategies and follow through more likely. The staff representing Lee Pesky have always been experts of subject matter and knowledgable regarding the training details (registration, technology support, etc...). If there were any questions, they responded in a helpful and timely manner. Overall, every interaction with an event under the Lee Pesky umbrella has been a rewarding experience for all involved; administration, staff and ultimately- children receiving the benefit of the teachers' trainings.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The trainings are comprehensivly organized and supported- removing any barriers to attendance ( cost, meals, location- trainings were offered across the state) The planning has included other agencies supporting cross collaborations. The information is delivered in multiple modalities to include all learning styles. The trainings included materials that could be used immediately in classrooms to transfer learning to practice.

The LPLC's Cristianne Lane was so generous with her time and talent as she evaluated the reading skills of our preschool students. Christianne offered valuable suggestions for staff and has provided an ever-present resouce for future program building. The Building Block for Literacy and Idaho Early Literacy Project have proven to be wonderful tools for our pre-school program.

I have interacted with Lee Pesky Learning Center on several different levels. Last year my son received tutoring through Lee Pesky, free of charge at his elementary school. The staff provided an engaging and fun educational experience for my son, and we immediately saw results. His confidence and skills in reading improved a great deal through this experience. Then, this summer, we decided to enroll our son in one on one tutoring, and have been thrilled with his progress. Not only have we seen his skills continue to improve, he loves to go to tutoring as well. The staff was very thorough and thoughtful in their evaluations of our son, and have carried out an educational plan that not only targets the needs of our son, but uses his strengths to enhance his tutoring sessions.
In addition, I myself have benefited from Lee Pesky's education for teachers. As a director/ teacher of a preschool program I was appreciative of the opportunity Lee Pesky provided to attend their "Building Blocks of Literacy" and "Every Child Ready for Math" classes. I and my entire preschool staff attended the classes and acquired great hands on activities to use in our classrooms on a daily basis. Lee Pesky is an asset to our educational community.

The Center's staff and educators are incredibly knowledgable and professional in the field of learning disabilities. I have never met more dedicated and caring experts. They provide incredible training and expertise to help people of all ages learn "better" despite their learning disabilities. In addition to the individualized services they provide, they are helping out educators learn how to recognize and help students with LD. The Center has years of data and research that can be used to help people all over the world with LD.

The Great!

We live overseas and were in Boise for 2 weeks over the summer. Lee Pesky set up a series of 9, 2-hour, one-on-one sessions for my daughter (dyslexia) and the results were fantastic. She enjoyed it and made great strides. Our own school's Learning Center Director was really impressed with the work she did and the report that Lee Pesky produced. We were able to pick-up where they left off without skipping a beat.

We also took advantage of the Social Cognitive work Pesky offers - again, excellant results and an enjoyable time for mey daughter.

Thank you so much to your center! The things I have learned are an invaluable too in my continued work in helping to strengthen and educate the children in our school in regards to math and reading. So many children fall through the cracks and you helped me learn better how to plug the cracks and keep those children learning with their peers at a level that will make them adults able to be in society in a productive manner!

My grandson had significant delays in reading and social functioning. The teachers at the Lee Pesky Learning Center were so caring and sensitive that this learning-averse child loved going there! His progress was amazing and he continues to use what he learned there both at school and at home. The professionals at the Center also included me by keeping me up-to-date on what he was doing so I could follow through at home. It was an excellent, productive experience for both of us.
