The Bend Learning Center helps children with learning differences understand and reach their potential.

By utilizing high-level research, best and effective practices, and over twenty-five years of experience, the Bend Learning Center can assess and discover specific learning strengths and weaknesses, and communicate those results to parents and students in empowering and practical ways. Most importantly, we teach learning techniques and strategies that really work. We specialize in working with students with dyslexia and those with other academic issues.


Children with dyslexia endure frustration and demoralization on a daily basis as they struggle to acquire skills that many of us take for granted. If your child is struggling with reading and writing, where can you go for help? Bend Learning Center exists to meet the unique needs of Central Oregon students with learning differences such as dyslexia and dysgraphia.

Starting with accurate assessment of your child’s learning strengths and weaknesses, we provide the most effective, evidenced-based approaches to teaching students with learning differences. By combining results-oriented learning strategies with caring mentoring and significant attention to each child and family, we are able to effect significant growth in academic skills as well as add great value to the child’s self-esteem.

The Bend Learning Center is in a unique position to help your child and your family.

Our background includes: academic training in learning disabilities; expertise in early intervention and child development; collaboration with national experts in the field of learning differences and behavioral health; successful teaching experience in a range of schools and tutorial settings.

The work of the Bend Learning Center revolves around these specific educational services:

  • In-depth educational assessments
  • Individualized and Small Group Tutorials
  • Family Coaching
  • Executive Function Training

“I think in 3D Technicolor pictures instead of words…I don’t think of dyslexia as a deficiency. It’s like having CAD (computer-aided design) in your brain.”
— Bill Dreyer, inventor and biologist at Cal-Tech


“Many times I can see a solution to something and synthesize things differently and quicker than other people….I would see the end zone and say ‘This is where we need to go’. This annoys sequential thinkers who think in a rigorous step-by-step process.”
– Charles Schwab, business leader/philanthropist
