About

P.I.E. provides intellectual stimulation of the mind through Dr. Ellyn Arwood's Neuroeducation Model, the Neuro-semantic Language Learning Theory (NsLLT). At P.I.E., children participate in drawing, writing, and movement (hand over hand) to further conceptualize and gain the tools necessary for understanding human experience. We will equip students with tools to adapt and respect people around them. We will help them develop creative problem-solving skills, and communicate their thoughts and ideas in a variety of ways.

We use the Neuro-Semantic Language Learning theory (NsLLT). Internally, the neurobiological process for conceptual learning is layered and starts at the sensory level that overlaps into patterns, then those patterns create concepts. Research confirms that conceptual learning through language occurs in neural networks with multiple access points running along circuits of nerves in the brain (Olson, 2001). Our program is based on how language and the brain function together. Language is the mediation between a child's literacy and behavior. Language names a child's thinking. The program focuses on helping children express themselves by increasing rich language and providing a rich and respectful socio-cognitive environment.
