Our Team

Restored Hope Remedial Services began when our founder, Ken Schmidt, recognized that the standard methods of treating debilitating reading and learning disabilities were ineffective for many students in his elementary classroom. He began to search for effective alternatives. Those alternatives led to Restored Hope Remedial Services, one of the premier learning centers located in the Kansas City, MO area.
