Our Story

founded Dynamic Learners, Inc.

Dr. Lillian McEnery and Dr. Joan Ickes

Lillian & Joan

As a parent, what can be more important than a child’s education? Tony’s dad, Steve, was concerned because Tony was struggling in his middle school classes. Like any good Dad, Steve wanted to help.  He had a private learning agency administer assessments, even though it was expensive. However, Steve questioned the private company’s assessment results and learning support. That is when he called his friend Joan.

Lydia - Girl in the 4th Grade

Lydia was a bright, curious, and funny 4th grader.  She excelled in math, but struggled in reading, writing, and spelling.  Our in-depth diagnostic assessment and analysis of Lydia’s results indicated phonological dyslexia.  Within a few months, Lydia’s spelling and reading scores improved significantly.  Her writing is more successful.  At school, Lydia is now a member of the academic and leadership club.  Lydia invites her learning specialist to attend her school activities.


Pedro - Boy in the first grade

Pedro was a quiet, hard-working 1st grader in a bilingual program.  He was below grade level in all subjects; however,  math was his best subject.  Our in-depth diagnostic assessment and analysis of Pedro’s results indicated challenges in word attack and comprehension in English and Spanish.  Within months, Pedro was reading on grade level in both languages.  He developed a strong rapport with his bilingual learning specialist.
