Switzer Learning Center improves the lives of those challenged by learning, social, and emotional difficulties by maximizing their educational competence and psychological well-being.
Switzer Learning Center's goal is to enable those who are experiencing difficulties with learning, social and emotional adjustments: gain greater insight into their difficulties, and be more tolerant of learning, behavioral and individual differences; recognize that they have strengths that they can use to compensate for weaknesses; learn ways to deal with the negative emotions and low-self esteem developed from years of unsuccessful struggling; and develop a sense of trust and optimism that sustains motivation to learn and apply alternative approaches and strategies so that they can be successful and happy in school and beyond.
