Educational Evaluations – Educational Evaluations can be administered to assess a student’s strengths and weaknesses. A battery of assessments can help develop an instructional plan, identify learning disabilities, and assist in understanding the educational needs of the child. Partners in Learning administers a variety of assessments which are selected after parent/child interviews and documentation review. A thorough educational report is developed upon completion of assessments.

Special Education Consulting – Partners in Learning offers support and guidance to families going through the special education process in schools. These services can include explaining the administrative and legal process, documentation review, observing the student in their school placement, and drafting or reviewing an Individualized Education Plan.

Diagnostic Prescriptive Tutoring – Partners in Learning offers Diagnostic Prescriptive Tutoring in the areas of reading, writing, spelling, and mathematics. All students will benefit from a customized learning plan based on results from assessments administered. A plan will specifically target a student’s academic needs. Research based programs designed for maximum academic growth will be utilized.

Orton-Gillingham Tutoring – Danielle and Ashley are both certified in the Orton-Gillingham approach. The Orton-Gillingham approach is a multi-sensory, structured, phonics-based instruction that works best in a one-to-one environment.  It is one of the oldest and most effective teaching approaches for struggling readers and children with dyslexia.
