Review: Sylvan Learning Center Assessment

Sylvan Learning Assessments

With almost two decades of homeschooling under our belts, our family has experienced a variety of learning issues.  Most of them we have been able to diagnose and resolve ourselves.

When I marked a recent French test, though, I realized I needed expert help.  Occasionally we all find ourselves in situations where our love, patience, and efforts are not enough, and then we usually don’t know where to turn.

However, long ago the 12-year-old daughter of a dear friend learned to read at a Sylvan Learning Center, and when I put down that French test, I picked up the phone and called Sylvan.

Of course, it wasn’t only the French.  It was also the math.  The reading.  The spelling.  The extreme creativity and extreme distractibility.  In fact, it was everything.

Did this child of mine need academic help?  Did she have dyslexia or was she just too global a thinker to notice the individual letters in a word?  Was it something like ADD or ADHD?  Or was it just a childish and lazy attitude?  I suspected it was a bit of each, but I knew I needed help to be able to sort it all out and give her the education she needs.
