Transfer from Cognitive-Based Programs

The Vancouver Learning Centre has experience in working with students who graduate or emerge from programs where intense cognitive retraining has taken place. They now have improved cognitive function, but they have missed important content of the academic curriculum, which they could address in only a limited way for a number of years.

This can produce serious barriers to success in both school and in the workplace, especially in the skill areas like reading, reading comprehension, math, listening comprehension, spelling, written expression, and in the content of the sciences and social sciences.

In these cases, a bridge or transition to the next stage of education to the high school leaving diploma, to the workplace, or to post-secondary instruction can be established by accessing the Vancouver Learning Centre BOOST (Buying Out Of School Temporarily) program, or by accessing the part time program with one-to-one academic training as they continue with neurocognitive training, or go to school. It should be noted that students in the BOOST program begin to earn high school credits as soon as they are ready.

To understand what can be done, review the website in your areas of interest and contact us by following the next steps below.

Next Steps

  • If you would like to have answers as to what can be done, you can book a complimentary interview with Vancouver Learning Centre Director Andrew Taylor by telephone at 604-738-2277 or by e-mail.
  • If after you are fully informed through the interview and by reading this website you are interested in proceeding, Andrew will provide you with an assessment date to begin the process.
  • If you have further concerns or questions you can speak to VLC principal and senior psychologist, Dr. Geraldine Schwartz, either by telephone or by booking a further personal complimentary interview.
  • The assessment will provide a clear statement of the student’s cognitive and educational strengths and weaknesses along with a detailed program that is offered as a proposal. The program is delivered by the Vancouver Learning Centre’s highly qualified teaching faculty, one-to-one.
