Empowering Unique Learners

Support for Schools

Miriam Learning Center supports schools through economical and quality contract staffing, special education consultation, and professional development.    

Recognized as a St. Louis area special education expert, the Learning Center partners with 100 general education schools to ensure they provide the best education to students who learn differently. For over 17 years, the Learning Center has helped educators learn to teach children who have Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, and Dyscalculia, ADHD, and other learning disorders through research-based interventions. Our seasoned special education professionals seamlessly integrate into schools to fill job vacancies when schools are not able to hire personnel. We are the experts in helping schools follow DESE requirements for testing and services.

We have seen a great change in our children's social emotional / mental health. Our parents very much enjoy and notice the progress made in their children.  Miriam has been a great asset to our program. The children that have been able to participate in the counseling services are able to practice proper self-regulation, feeling recognition and appropriating expression of those feelings.
