About Liu Education

Who we are?

LIU Institute of Child Development is the original inventor of the Visual, Auditory, and Sensory-Motor (VAS) Learning Abilities Enhancement Education System. This education system is utilized in order to correct the behavior problems for children and provide support for below-average learning performance. For over 40 years since 1979, this methodology has been applied clinically everywhere, and has helped over 300,000 children surmount learning difficulties.

After a VAS assessment for each child, a personalized and individualized lesson plan is customized for the child's level and needs by the team of specialists. Students are paired up with specialists in one to one to one to four ratios. These specialists undergo a rigorous training program that prepares them for teaching abilities such as communication, reading and writing skills, organization, comprehension, emotional development, and social interaction. Once students achieve these skills, they gain a sense of accomplishment, which bolsters confidence and self-esteem. Periodic and systematic reassessments are implemented in order to monitor the students' progress and adjust each student's program. Because of this, the students' core VAS abilities are quickly elevated, and rapid improvement of response time, reaction time, and reflex speed will be soon evident.

What we do?

LIU-VAS provides assessment, continued training, support, and a clear solution for children with inabilities to focus, dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, and autism. LIU-VAS's training program includes:

  • Assessment of your child's visual, auditory, and sensory-motor abilities
  • Consultation with parents regarding assessment results
  • Individualized lesson plans and implementation by specialists according to your child's needs and current level of performance
  • Reassessment after 4-6 months to provide parents with measurable results of your child's progress

History and Timeline

Founded in 1979, Liu Education was one of the first educational institution in Taiwan to focus on helping intellectually normal kids with "learning difficifulties" challenges. For over 40 years, for 300,000 children, LIU Institute has been dedicated to helping further children's educations, one child at a time. With over 18 locations directly managed around the world, LIU's VAS program has been able to provide individualized, specialized instruction tailored to each child's specific needs. We focus not only on academic subjects but on improving core VAS abilities of each child and providing children with lifelong learning skills that will help them well into adulthood.
In 1988, we added specialized programs for children with ADHD and Autism in our curriculums. We then expanded to the city of Los Angeles in May of 1995, and have conitued to help kids and families in the United States ever since.
We believe that by training the child's learning abilities, we help him or her improve their overall learning efficiencies. Based on our assessment results of the child's visual, auditory, and sensory-motor abilities, we will consult with the parents to provide the child individualized lesson plans and trainings according to his or her needs and current level of performance. Each child is unique and precious, and we believe that, with customized support and resources, all children have the capability to learn and reach their full potentials.
