Learners simply need opportunities to explore their world, use their gifts, make their own connections, and trust that they are capable.
Every student CAN learn! Plain and simple.
We believe that, given the right tools and the right timing, learners WILL be successful!
We heal learning disabilities with evidence-based educational therapies that transform thinking processes PERMANENTLY so that students can embrace their God-given uniqueness and fully engage their potential.
MUCH MORE THAN GRADES
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Einstein
This is why our interventions are holistic.
School can seem limiting for children that face learning difficulties, and they may begin to believe they’re not “smart enough” or “good enough,” and the problem is usually more than academic. For this reason, our interventions target the learner holistically —
FROM HEAD TO HEART
AT LIGHT UP LEARNING
We respect and nurture the complexity that makes up every individual — not only those areas created for tests, grades and generalized standards. Through integration mediation of perception, cognition, emotions and academics, students can move beyond surface learning and achieve life-long change!
We offer a unique, personalized one-on-one intervention that is specifically designed for those children with specific learning disabilities ranging from ADHD and ASD’s to Dyslexia, written expression disorders, and more.
Similar to Educational Therapy, RX & SHS interventions help to build efficient thinking processes specifically in reading and language, and math or executive functions through dynamic group interventions of either four or eight students.
Our homeschool alternative program is designed for the diverse population of students that will benefit from one-on-one individualized instruction, a smaller teacher/student ratio, and an integration of educational therapy methodology.
Is your child struggling to get help at school? Are your requests for testing or accommodations being neglected? Does he/she need services, a 504 Plan or IEP? Are you confused about RtI or the FSA? Let us help to light your way.
My daughter has been with Mrs. Jessie Castillo for three years. The techniques she used with my daughter have helped her become more independent in her studies. Her self-esteem and academics have improved due to the therapy she received as well as the annual testing. We praise God for sending Mrs. Castillo and for her dedication, support and love.

I wanted to say thank you for all your hard work with Christopher these past five weeks (summer session). I see the improvement so much already! (He) is excited about starting again in the school year!

Watching Matt work with you is like watching a child’s face light up when they walk into Disney World for the first time! He is flourishing both academically and personally!

I’m happy to recommend Jessie. She teaches with heart and with humor; a magical combination that allows children to feel comfortable and learn with confidence. I’m amazed by her knowledge and easy, yet powerful techniques. We are in good hands!

My kids are like tornadoes! Full of energy and having a hard time with reading, spelling, writing and staying on task. It wasn’t until we started educational therapy at Light Up Learning that we pretty quickly started to see the difference. Vanessa received the Most Improved Student Award, and Julian is on the Honor Roll!
Mother of Vanessa & Julian
This year was the year. He entered 3rd grade & the looming FSA was above us. If he didn’t pass, he would be retained. A week ago, it was confirmed that he had passed third grade. I want to thank Light Up Learning and its phenomenal therapists who spent all those hours with my son helping him learn through play and commitment. As we were jumping up for joy, the words that came out of his mouth were unbelievable: “Mom all the hard work has paid off. With God All Things Are Possible!
