What does a PACE program cost?

The fees vary depending on the type and combination of services you require. After an initial consultation, we are able to determine the best plan based on the student’s individual learning needs. We want to help as many people as possible so we offer flexible payment plans.    

Is there a guarantee?

We offer two guarantees. If after four sessions you are not completely satisfied there is a full refund. If after the training is completed there has not been at least a two year improvement in a deficient learning skill, you will receive up to 6 more sessions for free or a partial refund.

How does PACE differ from academic tutoring?

PACE tackles the cause rather than the effect. If the reason for learning difficulties is poor instruction, then academic tutoring is the correct solution. But if there is a deficient underlying learning skill, then PACE may be able to “cure” the cause.

Why does PACE require so many hours per week?

We believe that getting big, fast changes is far better than getting slow, gradual changes for two reasons. First, it is easier to get parents to commit to working very hard for 12 weeks than one hour a week for 18 months. Second, it’s important that students see big changes quickly – this will increase…

Do the results last?

Yes. The skills developed are used each day the student is in school or at work. They are constantly being used and therefore don’t regress. This retention is reflected in a study that showed that 98.7% of the one year follow-up cognitive test scores were at least as high as they were at the completion…

How is PACE different from other remediation programs?

Traditional help for individuals with learning problems has typically focused on one of four methodologies: sensory therapy (vision, auditory) motor therapy (speech, occupational) psychotherapy (motivation) academic remediation (remedial reading, learning disabled programs) Although these methods may be effective in correcting a sensory, motor, or very specific academic problem, they have had limited results in significantly…

Why is PACE provided one-on-one rather than in a group?

PACE is done one-on-one for two reasons. First, the activities need to be sequenced according to each student’s skill level. Each training task demands very specific skills. The student needs to be constantly challenged. If the task is too easy, it’s boring. But if it’s too hard, it’s frustrating. Procedures that are challenging will cause…

What is a training task like?

PACE training procedures are made up of tasks that are designed to meet specific goals. The tasks are related, make repetitive demands on a deficient skill, and progressively increase in difficulty. This is a process-specific approach to training (as opposed to a general stimulation approach). A process-specific approach targets the same function systematically and repetitively…

Why are most PACE training procedures non-academic?

Academic content could cause some students to resist training because it may seem too much like school, which the student may associate with negative experiences. Because we start at the point the student can achieve and then gradually increase the demand – like a video game – the student gains ability and confidence. Also, the…
