Learning Consultants' philosophy is unlike many other agencies that serve children. We focus on the skills and strengths of a child rather than the deficits and problems. Our approach is based on a realistic assessment of every child and family. 

We recognize the challenges in our work and the impossibility of changing past experiences. As a child approaches adolescence, the treatment needs to take advantage of the healthy part of their development. It is our philosophy to work with the normal motivational drives of independence and socialization. It is our opportunity to teach transferable skills that lead to improved success at school, on the job, in the community, and in the family. 

Learning Consultants programs serve more than just the child. Ours is a total systems approach. This includes working with and supporting the family, teachers, school counselors, coaches and other professionals. We believe individuals grow through successful experiences, the acquisition of skills and accomplishment of goals. By involving all those significant to the child, we greatly enhance the child's ability to succeed. 

Learning Consultants was founded in 1964 by Bill Ferzacca as he was developing special techniques for group therapy and other services for children, especially those with learning problems. Over the 40+ years since its founding, Learning Consultants has grown dramatically due to its outstanding reputation and demonstrated success with children. What emerged was the realization that the original techniques were effective in a variety of settings and formats. As a result, not only did the staff grow, but also the scope of their services. Today Learning Consultants has a staff of more than 20, including professionals in Social Work, Education, Counseling and Psychology.
