Many intelligent individuals have learning disabilities.  These individuals need to learn how to tap into learning strategies which help them process, retain, and transfer knowledge and information.  If you are an individual with a specific learning disability you are in the company of many prominent individuals. Famous people in all walks of life, from government to entertainment,  have dealt with learning disabilities or dyslexia or ADD/ADHD:  Vice President Nelson Rockefeller, dyslexia; fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger, dyslexia; former NFL quarterback Terry Bradshaw, AD/HD; and Virgin Records CEO Richard Branson, dyslexia.

Students with learning disabilities process information differently. These students need to receive information in a manner that makes sense to them. It is okay to process information differently.  It is not okay is to have to struggle within traditional learning environments to makes sense of the content and the knowledge, to bring that information into the student’s schema.  Too often the typical, large-classroom lecture setting at many universities plunges the student with learning disabilities into a downward spiral of juggling information and figuring out or trying to figure out how to grasp the information. This is the point where Beacon College shines in bringing that information home to students who have learning disabilities.

Cottey College-- the Perfect Fit for Homeschooled Girls

Click to learn more

Most homeschooling families appreciate the idea of providing moral and spiritual insulation for their children. This is one of the major reasons parents choose to homeschool and none ever seem to regret the choice. Raising our children with a sense of morality, ethics, wholesomeness and self-reliance is not isolation, but insulation. However, it seems to be difficult to find such an appreciation of wholesomeness in the "outside" world. Parents of young homeschooled ladies will be pleased to learn about one such place in the wide world that values our values; nurtures as we want our children to be nurtured -- no matter how "old" they may be.

L.A. Trade Tech College – The Perfect Resource for Homeschoolers

Click to learn more

We homeschoolers understand the value of practical skills as part of raising a
well-rounded individual. While they certainly respect and strive for academic excellence, homeschoolers also know that achieving a college degree is not the
be-all of being knowledgeable and “well-educated.” Many are the stories of homeschoolers starting businesses with practical skills that spring from a true interest. We oft en chuckle at the idea of a person possessing a PhD who has no clue how to change a fl at tire, cook a simple meal or perform some other practical activity. The solution for such “top heaviness” is to learn reallife skills as well as academics – and downtown Los Angeles is home to the top resource for such learning in the Southwest – possibly the entire United States! It is Los Angeles Trade Tech College, a cozy, safe, tranquil, 25-acre campus, located amid the bustle of the City of the Angels, at Washington Boulevard and Grand Avenue, immediately off of the Grand Avenue exit on Interstate10 East.
