Lisa Harp

Hi! I am the founder of Harp Learning Institute and Learning Link Technologies. I created the Harp Learning System for students who struggle with dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, and other learning disabilities. My five-step system is scientific, research driven, and backed by over sixteen years of success. I also have downloadable workbooks available at my site, I have helped thousands of students overcome learning disabilities. It is my goal to put an end to learning disabilities by giving students the right tools to fill in gaps in their learning foundations! I have learning centers in Lodi and San Francisco and am currently expanding to other cities in Northern California as well as other states.

Auditory Processing Problems – Part 2

Have you ever wondered if your child is hearing properly?  Have you marveled that your child can vividly remember details from a movie or past event, but when you give a simple direction it is forgotten almost immediately?

How Auditory Processing Affects Learning

Are you starting to think about the upcoming school year?  Are you busy shopping for school clothes and supplies, wondering who your child’s teacher will be?  And hoping that this year will be better than last for your child?

A Visual Summer!

When the World is “Tilted”

Dyslexia – The Double Edged Sword
