“You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” 
–Eleanor Roosevelt

Turning Point’s Oakland educational services are named for the moment of choosing a path away from struggle — and towards understanding one’s own capacities, building skill, and taking positive action — including advocating for one’s own learning needs.  Turning Point is about highly personalized, one-on-one help for students challenged by dyslexia, attention and executive function issues, and difficulties with all levels of reading and writing — as well as foundational math through algebra.  We also provide consultation and referrals for parents, and supervision for educational therapists completing their required supervisory hours.
