Start Planning For Summer Now
We are planning for summer now!
We will continue online remote/distance sessions for students outside of the San Diego area. Additionally, while we wait and watch what will happen in the global pandemic, we still hope to be able to provide in-clinic services to local students again possibly in June, July, or August. Of course, we will be adhering to the strictest of health standards and will continue to provide the highest of quality remote work with all students in effort to help them be prepared for next school year!
Frequently asked questions
What will happen if my child doesn’t get this kind of help?
Learning difficulties and struggles in school and/or social situations are most often the result of weak or inconsistent learning skills. These underlying skills cause interference to learning. Unfortunately, they do not typically improve with time or traditional tutoring. As a result, students become more frustrated and anxious about their learning challenges. Some students become angry or withdrawn. They may appear unmotivated. They may make poor decisions, feel like a failure, and quit believing in themselves. Others show signs of anxiety and depression.on go to app settings and press "Manage Questions" button.
What can I expect this year in school and with homework as a result of this therapy?
At first it may be difficult to fit in homework, activities, and sessions at TLC. We sometimes suggest getting a “homework pass” in subjects that they can until homework gradually becomes easier and takes less time. Students become less anxious and more confident and willing to try things that they see as difficult. Attention both in school and at home increases. Interest in learning increases and learning becomes fun again.
How long has the center been open?
What are the clinician’s qualifications?
We have a fantastic group of energetic and passionate people on the TLC Team. Everyone has some degree of background in psychology. All of our staff has been thoroughly trained in all of the programs used at TLC. We continuously hold in-service training on new programs, intentional strategies and disabilities. Training and collaboration is a way of life at TLC. Clinicians meet regularly to consult with each other and with Maria in order to provide the highest quality and most efficient instruction for our students. You may learn more about each on the team on the About Us page.
How long does it take before I can see results?
Very often students and parents will begin to see changes within just a few weeks. Our goal for each student is that he or she becomes the most comfortable, efficient, and independent learner he or she can be. How long this process takes will depend on the number and severity of the student’s learning challenges and the intensity of the therapy time.

What does your therapy look like?
All of our therapy is provided on a one-to-one, directed teaching basis. Some of our programs use specialized materials or equipment. Therapy is provided in individual therapy rooms, and we have room set aside for Core Learning Skills exercises which are always fun.
Is all of your therapy one-on-one with each student?
How do I get my child started?
The first step in our process is to help us get to know you, your child and your concerns within a scheduled individual consultation. During that meeting we will listen to your experience and goals and we explain exactly what we do to see if there is a good match. We will give you a chance to get all of your questions answered.
