About Us

What Makes Us Different

Meet Maria

Maria Bagby founded the Therapeutic Learning Center in Solana Beach, CA in 2012.  TLC's focus has been on FIXING learning challenges through strengthening the underlying learning skills needed for comfortable and efficient learning.  “When a smart child is struggling in school, it is often because they have a hidden underlying CAUSE. That could be weak processing skills (e.g. auditory or visual processing, memory skills or processing speed). By addressing the cause of the problem, students become the motivated, confident and independent learners they want to be.”​
