The Center for Learning (C4L) was founded in 1999 with the vision of providing comprehensive assessment and educational and psychological interventions to children with unique learning styles as well as to assist their parents in navigating the educational system. C4L was also designed to incorporate the knowledge of multiple disciplines (psychology and education) in order to maximize student success. C4L is now operating in Irvine and at satellite offices in Aliso Viejo and San Juan Capistrano led by a highly qualified staff that provides research-based interventions that are in the forefront of our field for students of all ages.
Dr. Shirin Ansari is the founder of The Center for Learning and Behavioral Solutions in Irvine. As a School Psychologist with the Irvine Unified School District she acquired knowledge of and an appreciation for the educational approaches to solving children’s learning problems. As a Clinical Psychologist her emphasis on neuropsychology has inspired her to develop research-based techniques for the treatment of learning difficulties, processing disorders and language problems.
A firm believer in viewing a child from multiple perspectives, Dr. Ansari has pioneered a multidisciplinary approach in evaluation and treatment of children and adolescents. Her professional expertise allows her to integrate the four key disciplines of educational psychology, neuropsychology, clinical psychology and special educational into her understanding of each child’s individuality. This unique approach has a proven track record of success with students who struggle with learning. This approach has gained much recognition among the clinical and research communities. Dr. Ansari and her colleagues have done a number of research studies which have been published in some of the most prestigious medical and psychological journals including The Journal of American Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Orange County Psychologist.
