Mission & Vision

At LAS, we are committed to “…ensuring that all students learn, achieve, and succeed, one person at a time.” Whether meetings are in-person or via video conference, our evidence-based approach starts with The 3 C’s: Curriculum Design, Coaching, and Consulting.

We support a variety of learners in both health science education and general education. Our instructors are trained to teach organization skills and strategies that address inattention, distraction, reading challenges, and executive function difficulties.
