H.E.L.P. is an acronym for “Help Elevate Learning Processing”

Formerly Help Eliminate Learning Problems

Our Mission:
HELP is dedicated to improving the way children and adults process information, thereby increasing their understanding, communication, educational and employment potential and quality of life, without regard to ethnic background or religious beliefs.

Origins:
HELP is not-for-profit, non-discriminatory corporation,  owned and operated in Oregon since 1984. We have been in the Lake Oswego area since inception.

HELP is Not Traditional Learning!

“I started the HELP program mainly because I wasn’t doing well in school as well as my parents and I wanted to do. What I’ve taken away from it was a year of fun, basically. It wasn’t a traditional learning style, where you sit down, study...it’s completely different.  They have you do juggling, ball & stick--ask Susan or Bill about that.

It basically taught me how to think with both sides of my brain, instead of just my right or my left. And that has been really helpful.

What I plan on taking away from this (experience) is that I want to pursue a career in education and become a teacher for high school students.”


HELP changed my child’s’ life!

“The program at HELP has really changed our lives! Amber is so much more confident and happy, she really believes in herself.”

HELP offers a successful, drug-free treatment for children and adults with learning problems. Located on the Marylhurst campus for over 34 years, HELP provides affordable, personalized instruction.
