The MLE Training and Research Society (founded in 1991) operates the Mediated Learning Academy and the Variety Learning Centre. Our unique cognitive approach, called Mediated Learning Experience (MLE) is designed to help children with a wide variety of challenges realize their potential. Children with acquired brain dysfunction, genetic syndromes, Autism, attentional problems, and a host of specific academic and emotional challenges are able to learn together in a safe environment. Most of our children tend to be highly anxious, not infrequently exhibiting a lack of self-worth. MLE focuses on creating emotional safety, feelings of competence, and on developing the learning potential of every child. Speech-Language and occupational therapy, physiotherapy, and counselling are central to producing changes and serve to support the work of our experienced teaching staff.
Academic and Personal Growth is possible!
The Mediated Learning Academy (MLA) serves children from all over the Lower Mainland. Children learn in classes of 10 students with one teacher and assistants, as needed. All teachers are members of the Teacher’s College and therapists are certified by their respective colleges. MLA belongs to the Federation of Independent Schools.
