Review for Learning Help Centers Of Charlotte, Charlotte, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been blessed to work with B, a bright, eager to learn, little girl who loves to read. Our relationship serves as a wonderful example of how valuable timely interventions can be. B’s main challenge was that she could not answer questions about what she read. She was just sounding out words or guessing them based on the pictures in the book (quite clever of her), and frequently her pronunciation was incorrect. Yet, she’d persevere, desperately wanting to learn and to please her teachers.
Her difficulties were being blamed on the fact that English was her second language. After working with B for a few months, I suspected that further intervention was needed. LHCC came alongside her mother to help her get speech therapy for B through the school system. Her pronunciation is improving which is also helping her differentiate between similar sounding words! As she has been exposed to more literature and to field trips through LHCC, her ability to relate to what she is reading has expanded, also.
She is currently on grade level and her confidence is soaring. What a privilege it is to work with this beautiful little girl and begin to see the fruits of our labors. B has a distance to go, and I am so grateful that I get to continue her journey with her!
