Since 1989, Strategic Learning Clinic has helped thousands of students of all ages in the West Island and beyond become the best that they can be through its unique three-pronged approach: remedial programs, brain training programs, and targeted academic support. This process sets them apart, as they always begin with a consultation to get to know the families that they work with and each individual student’s strengths and weaknesses. The Clinic then administers academic and cognitive efficiency tests to ensure that a student participates in programs that specifically address the root cause(s) of the difficulties they face in school. Lastly, a student’s progress is monitored on an ongoing basis.

So many parents contact the Clinic and relate heart-breaking accounts of their child’s academic and emotional struggles. Students struggle in and out of school for many reasons such as language and phonological issues, attentional challenges, visual-spatial issues, weak processing speed and/or working memory, and executive function deficits. As a result, they become anxious about school and the older they get, the more defeated they become by their overwhelming challenges, and despair that things will ever get better. Eventually, they may lose their passion for learning in the process.

A parent’s instincts are rarely wrong. You may sense when your child needs help, and by responding to these instincts, learning difficulties can be addressed before they escalate. If you are a parent who has been disappointed by traditional tutoring and does not know where to turn for support, please share your story. The Clinic’s trained educators and proven programs can definitively address your child’s underlying difficulties, ultimately ensuring their bright future.


You can contact the Strategic Learning Clinic in the following ways:
