Helping Children, Teens and Adults succeed in the 21st Century
Neuro-Linguistic Learning Center
About Us:
Gerald Hughes spent most of his scholastic life struggling with the effects of Dyslexia and ADD. While he excelled in Math and science, his grades in Language Arts, History and most other subjects suffered terribly due to his ongoing difficulties with reading and writing as well as his classroom struggles with focus and concentration. By his Junior year, he had virtually given up on academics.

A decade passed before Gerald decided to tackle college. He majored in communications and computer science. As someone who was always interested in helping others, Gerald created his first professional coaching program in 1994. And in 2004, he began helping children with various learning challenges.

"My journey towards helping others began with my own struggles with the effects of Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Disorder. It continued with my experience as a father to six children, several of whom struggled with the effects of Dyslexia and ADHD."

"Like many parents and those who struggled with learning challenges, I investigated many of the so-called treatments available and I tried several with limited success. What I came to realize was that many well-meaning therapists, counselors and tutors simply did not understand the complexities of these learning challenges. Their supposed solutions often included extensive one-on-one tutoring, or countless hours staring at a computer screen or flipping through thousands of flashcards or numerous reviews of the rules of phonics."

"To the dismay of myself and many others, these inappropriate treatments were simply ineffective, time-consuming and often very expensive."
In 2006, after achieving success with his own children and several of their classmates, Gerald founded the Neuro-Linguistic Learning Center in El Dorado Hills, California. Since then, he has been assisting both children and adults in overcoming a variety of learning challenges.
The Neuro-Linguistic Learning Center, it's programs and Learning Specialists help children, teens and adults in overcoming many of the symptoms and struggles associated with a variety of learning challenges, including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Dyslexia, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Asperger's Syndrome, Auditory Processing Disorder (APD), Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), and other Pervasive Developmental Disorders.

Clients of the Neuro-Linguistic Learning Center range in age from 2 years old to 54. Their challenges may include symptoms of Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, Sensory Integration Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, fears and phobias, procrastination and many other learning challenges.

About his experience as Director of the Neuro-Linguistic Learning Center, Gerald says, "Ultimately, it was my personal experience with the many children and adults who came to the Learning Center which helped provide a real understanding of these challenges and ultimately resulted in our ability to provide effective and life-changing solutions for our clients."

Gerald has lived in El Dorado County for the past 16 years and is father and stepfather to six children, several of whom have had their own struggles with Dyslexia, ADD and other learning challenges. He is a frequent speaker/lecturer on education and learning disabilities. He is author of several books, including, "The Quick Fix", and, "Gifted--Not Broken: Overcoming Dyslexia, ADD and other Learning Challenges."

Nothing on this site or in any of our programs are intended to replace sound medical advice. Rather, our intent is to offer hope and assistance to parents, teachers and children who have struggled with the symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), Dyslexia and other sensory-based learning challenges.
