System™ is a multi-tool, comprehensive plan personalized to your child's learning style.

Read a brief description of each tool below.

Training for parents and professionals (The T.R.A.I.N. station)

To change that, we offering trainings for professionals and parents that can be accessed through our training module system and taught on their own time at their own pace.

Our Services

The Cognitive Emporium makes smart kids smarter by identifying the source of the struggle and providing an individualized solution to end it. We determine the “Why” and then provide you with the “How” based on the individual's unique learning profile.

Our initial evaluation takes a wholistic approach, identifying specific cognitive strengths and weaknesses, along with any other factors that are contributing to the struggle. We then custom design an action plan that will balance and realign the strengths and weaknesses in order to achieve academic optimization. We stand behind our mission of educating, equipping, and empowering, and walk beside you throughout this learning process.


Dyslexia is defined in two parts: the neurological and the educational factors that comprise it. While most tutors focus on only the educational side, at The Cognitive Emporium, we address both factors to ensure success in all of life's areas.
