We offer Distance Learning programs so geography is not a barrier to getting the help you need. Here’s how it works:
- Call 909-598-2482 for a free 20-minute consultation with our Distance Learning Consultant. We can help you determine if Distance Learning is a good option for your child and family.
- Our consultant will email you a set of Intake Questionnaires. Return these to us with your Intake Fee of $395 and any recent testing reports, IEPs, report cards, and videos that you feel will help us better understand your child’s learning needs.
- We will review all of your paperwork and videos and will meet with you via phone or video conference to get more detailed information from you, make projected recommendations for programming, and get your Distance Learning program started.
- On-site testing and Jump Start: Families are strongly advised to come to either the Chino, CA or Irvine, CA center for evaluation and a jump start on the programs. A minimum of 3 days is recommended, but many families opt for 1 – 3 weeks, particularly if they are coming from other countries or a great distance. Why do a Jump Start? An on-site assessment allows us to explore all different aspects of your child’s learning and to see how he or she approaches each task. It gives us the best look at exactly what underlying skills are not supporting him well enough and what to do to change that.
- The Jump Start allows us to get started with your child and see exactly how he will respond to the programming, how quickly he will be able to move, and what challenges will likely come up. You get to see how the programs work and how to coach your child. We will work with you on navigating and using the materials and how to get started once you go home.
- We set up a weekly phone or video chat consultation with your Distance Learning consultant to be your instructor and coach as you work with your child on the recommended programming.
Parents find the Jump Start to be extremely helpful. It gets student on board, helps the family see some success right away, and gives the parent the confidence to continue the training once they get home.
Who is Distance Learning for?
- Families who live in an area that has few or no options to adequately treat their child.
- Families who live outside of driving distance to the Stowell Learning Center
- Some parents have been disappointed by poor results through programs at school or other education centers or private practices. They are drawn to Stowell Learning Center because of the results others have experienced.
“I had great support from the SLC staff. They always provided me with tools and tips for home or school to help my son succeed. It was always clear with assignments and any questions or concerns were given immediate feedback.”Parent
Dear Stowell Learning Center:
Your kindness is appreciated more than words can say. We cannot thank you enough for the kindness and compassion you’ve shown our son and our whole family. In the two weeks he’s been there, he’s made more progress than in his 6 years of therapy and schooling. We are utterly astounded and forever grateful.
On Compassion and Knowledge:
Knowledge without Compassion
Compassion without Knowledge
Quote taken from the book,
“Visions of Compassion”
In our years of taking our 12 year old son to a mix of therapies, schools and Learning Centers, we’ve seen varying degrees of the two: some with more knowledge than compassion, and some with more compassion than knowledge. SLC, on the other hand, seems to have a profound depth- and breadth- of both. No wonder our son is soaring!
Thank you, SLC!Love, The Everfree-Gray Family
Orion has joined the Stowell Learning Center family as a Distance Learning student. This past April, Orion and his Mom, Kelly, traveled from New Port, Oregon to find the help they were not able to find near their home. They traveled to Chino, California for a two week intensive, which evolved into a total of three weeks of intensive work.
We have all enjoyed working with Orion. His team worked with him on several different programs to meet his needs; Samonas for auditory processing and overall learning support, AST-Reading and Spelling and Core Learning Skills to help integration, attention, self-regulation and grounding. Kelly has also been given tips and techniques to help Orion to know when his attention has drifted and to help him increase his stamina when working on difficult tasks. Orion is now back home and has continued his programming. Kelly, is the “Coach” and works with Orion on a daily basis. We now consult weekly to guide and support both student and “Coach”.
It is a pleasure to work with the Everfree-Gray family
