When working with a group, it is extremely important to learn the unique class profile so that multisensory instruction and assignments can be tailored to group and individual needs. Also a rich array of activities choices should be provided so that all students feel empowered and accommodated in the learning environment. No two people share the same strengths and weaknesses. In fact, each individual has his or her own unique ways of learning. While education continually searches for the best group approach to learning, individuals with contrasting needs are often neglected and learning can become an unpleasant experience. When working with Dr. Warren, it's not a matter of fitting into a program; a unique program is created for each student. The individualized approach is a process designed to empower and rekindle a love for learning by helping students to: 1. Define academic goals 2. Utilize exceptional study skills 3. Release the fear of academic failure 4. Understand talents and difficulties 5. Develop compensatory strategies 6. Foster confidence and independence 7. Remediate areas of difficulty 8. Develop areas of ability 9. Acquire self advocacy skills
Dr. Warren currently has over 40 publications and is often asked to speak at schools, and national conferences.
Aspiring to empower the spirit of those who struggle with learning, Dr. Warren tailored a special degree program that combined course-work and research in Educational Psychology, Special Education, School Psychology, and Adult Education. Her doctoral degree in Education from the University of Georgia focused on the life-long issues of learning, the impact of learning disabilities across the life-span, and comprehensive diagnostic assessments. In addition, her Masters degree in Educational Psychology, from the University of Northern Colorado, covered life-span development, learning, and cognition. Finally, Dr. Warren has a BA in fine arts. This is one of her best assets as creativity, design and color often bedazzles her approach and materials.
In 1999, Dr. Erica Warren opened the doors of Learning to Learn in Ossining, NY.

In 2009 Dr. Warren launched Good Sensory Learning, an ever expanding offering of multi-sensory, and fabulously fun educational materials.
