Learning Charms Foundation was created to fill the gap of developmental support available to children in the school and home environments. As therapy providers are becoming more difficult to find, the cost and access for therapy services are increasing. The price of therapy is often out of reach for families.
Whereas many schools are offering academic tutoring services by volunteers, they are not offering developmental services. If a child is behind with his or her developmental skills (fine motor, gross motor, speech production, visual perceptual , etc) then that child will make limited progress on academic skills. Developmental skills must be addressed first.
We partner with North Carolina charter schools, privately funded preschools, state preschools and local preschools. We are committed to seek out partners whose enrollment is at least 70% of low income or at risk children.

In our recent pilot study of 155 preschool aged children (2022) 43-60% of enrolled children would have qualified for occupational therapy via Medicaid’s standards.
We work with preschool children in 1:1 during the school day and usually outside of the classroom.
Schools and Agencies that partner with us find that parents, teachers, and children are happy for the support. Our therapists work with the teachers to provide support for children both in and outside of the classroom.
When a child’s parent has consented to our services and the child has NC Medicaid, our team takes care of billing therapy services to Medicaid so that there is no cost to the parent or the school.
For IEP children, the cost of service is billed to the school. If a child with an IEP also has Medicaid, then we can bill some services to Medicaid.
We also offer private pay services to parents whose child does not have Medicaid.
Parents look for schools with resources for their kids. We help to expand your offerings, which makes you look good.
