Cervantes researched the issue and became so immersed that he ultimately founded the learning disabilities support center of New York in Park Chester, the Bronx.

Juan Cervantes teaches computer skills and holds motivational workshops. Both adults and children are encouraged to attend.

Juan and his wife Catherine emphasize the importance of nutrition in combating learning disabilities.
