Helping Children, Teens and Adults succeed in the 21st Century
Neuro-Linguistic Learning Center
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
"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.

About his experience as Director of the Neuro-Linguistic Learning Center,

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."
