Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT Learning Right!
Three questions with Barbara Boller from Learning Right.
Why did you start your business?
Learning Right is a small business designed to offer services to families who are looking to support their child’s educational needs. We began by offering specialized tutorials for students with dyslexia and quickly realized that parents needed guidance, support, and information as they worked with schools to develop appropriate educational plans for their child. In response, we added diagnostic and consultation services. By design, we remain a small private practice committed to providing support for families as they navigate the educational system.
What is your best-selling product/service?
Learning Right offers comprehensive psychoeducational evaluations that provide parents with the information they need to understand their child’s learning profile. In addition, we continue to provide individualized tutorials in reading for both struggling and dyslexic students and provide consultation for families and school districts.
Have you "reimagined" your small business?
Over the years, our goal has been to provide families with the information and resources they need to support their child’s academic needs. Our business structure was and continues to be, one that is both client-focused and driven, with an emphasis on individualized attention. In light of the educational challenges families and schools have faced this past year, our commitment to supporting families and children has remained strong.
Speaking of another business that Barbara would like to see featured next, it is Sara Campbell - a Women's clothing store in New Canaan!
