About the Provider

Description: We seek to develop and expand a learner driven science of teaching for all children, a science of practice that provides superior education based exclusively on scientific procedures. Our goals are to accelerate children’s learning, the ability to learn in new ways, and to acquire the ability to learn independently. It is also as important that children learn to expand their community of reinforcers, or passionate interests, as it is to teach them to do things they could not do without special instruction. It is not enough to learn to read fluently; rather, one must come to learn to love to read. There are systematic scientific procedures to do this and we seek to provide them for children in our schools and to expand the science to do so for children in all schools!

Additional Information: This facility is authorized to administer over-the-counter topical ointments only; Initial License Date: 9/29/2009;
