Respect is a big issue for our son and

one that, because of his learning

this, Dr. Clohessy went out of her way

and even designed the report to be

Before we began Social Thinking
our daughter wore black, liked
being alone, had narrow thinking
and did not look people in the
eye, she was on her way to
becoming forgotten and a loner...
Now a year later she laughs,
smiles, no black, and is more open
to new things and looks everyone
in the eye. The work you do at the
Pesky Center is amazing! You
helped our whole family.

15 years
improving the lives of people
who learn differently through ...
pr evention
Some learning challenges
can be prevented when
children are provided
with quality early learning
experiences, appropriate
classroom instruction,
and targeted support in
reading and math. We
provide training and
consultation for teachers
(preschool through
college) nationwide to
support their efforts in
providing high-quality
learning experiences for
all students.
We conduct psychoeducational evaluations
to determine the learning
profile of individuals who
learn differently. Our
evaluations focus on an
individual's academic,
cognitive, and
social/emotional profile
and directly inform
treatment plans that
address the needs of the
whole person.
We provide individual and
group academic
intervention, social
cognitive intervention, and
counseling to meet the
various learning needs of
children and adults with
learning differences.
We are partnering with
Boise State University to
establish a research agenda
that helps us to better
understand the complex
causes of learning
disabilities, to identify new
interventions for students
with learning disabilities,
and to replicate those
services in areas beyond
our current reach.
