Welcome to Marshall University H.E.L.P. Center

Founded in 1981 by Dr. Barbara Guyer, a nationally recognized specialist in the fields of education, learning disabilities, and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (A.D.H.D), the Marshall University H.E.L.P. Center is a fee-based comprehensive academic support program that has grown from its humble beginnings in a cramped basement to a thriving and nationally recognized Center of Excellence with its own modern building, Myers Hall, on the beautiful campus of Marshall University in Huntington, WV.

Changing lives for over thirty years . . .

For over three decades the H.E.L.P. Center has grown and diversified its services to meet the educational needs of Marshall University students, medical students from around the country, and students ranging in age from 6 to 18 in the local community. We also offer a Skills Development Program, Summer Prep, and diagnostic services. Each program is administered and developed by coordinators who work closely with a team of experts in the fields of education, learning disabilities, A.D.H.D, psychology, and counseling to offer the ideal services for their respective programs.
