The Hummingbird Learning Method®

Learning can be easy, fast and fun

The Hummingbird Learning Method® was created by Elaine Sparling to help adults and children overcome the effects of various learning difficulties and disabilities.

Working with each person's own learning style, our programs empower people to store, process and recall information effectively. In addition to teaching general learning strategies, our programs include powerful social and life skills to help children and adults overcome their present limitations, expand their horizons and achieve higher performance in education and in life.

In addition to offering specialised learning programs for children, teens and adults, we offer support to parents, teachers and others who are helping them to learn and grow.
