About Suburban Learning Center

Suburban Learning Center's founder, Jean M. Holmes, was a pioneer in the field of learning disabilities. She began working with children with learning disabilities in the 1970s when this unique group of children who "learn differently" was first recognized. Jean founded Suburban Learning Center in the early 1980s in order to provide diagnostic evaluations and remedial services to a wide range of children. For more than 20 years, until her untimely passing in 2003, she worked with individual children and helped their families understand their unique learning styles in order to afford them every educational opportunity. Jean recruited and trained a highly dedicated, motivated staff of learning specialists who have continued her vision of being leaders in the field of education for children with learning differences.
