Graviant, based in Doetinchem in the eastern part of the Netherlands, was founded in 1981 to fill a gap in the education of students with special needs. Over the years Graviant has published materials to support students with ADHD, autism, dyslexia, dyscalculia, as well as gifted and talented students.
In 2015, Graviant decided to step into the online education market by starting a new brand called Graviant Learning, and in April 2016 became Scientific Learning’s first official value added reseller (VAR) in the Benelux region, encompassing Belgium, Luxenbourg and the Netherlands. While continuing to provide support to special needs students, the main emphasis of Graviant Learning’s penetration into Benelux schools has been English language learning improvement. Harnessing the power of Fast ForWord and Reading Assistant, Graviant Learning has provided local schools with a unique and effective English language learning solution that has already been implemented with thousands of students.
Benelux’s excellent internet infrastructure, coupled with Scientific Learning’s MySciLEARN internet-based platform, has enabled Graviant Learning to get schools up and running quickly and smoothly. They work closely with school personnel to establish a comprehensive implementation plan, which reduces roadblocks and prevents surprises at each stage of student use. Graviant Learning also has a 24/7 helpdesk to provide support to teachers and administrators in case of questions or issues.
Feedback from students has been very positive, supported by the fact that the programs are easy to run, and home use is possible. The feedback from teachers and administrators is equally positive, with comments noting that everyone wanting to learn English deserves these programs.
