The Center is a non-profit corporation in the state of Pennsylvania which has 501c3 IRS status. The Center was founded by Dr. Cooper in 1987 to provide low cost and free educational services to individuals with learning differences, problems and disabilities. The activities at the center are funded by donations, grants and fees for teacher training courses. The mission of the Center for Alternative Learning is to provide educational and social services for individuals, both children and adults, who because of their learning problems are undereducated or have weak academic skills. 

Current programs include adult basic education classes and a literacy program for individuals who have reading problems.  Adults wishing to attend classes or work with a tutor need to make an appointment to complete the registration materials and be tested for proper placement.  To obtain additional information or to set up an appointment to register, please contact our office at  610-446-6126.

      If you would like to make a donation to the Center, you can add it to your LDR order and it will be transferred to the Center and used to offer free assessments and specialized instruction to individuals with learning differences who are not eligible to receive such services elsewhere.
