Educational Therapy

The needs of the whole child are carefully considered in educational therapy. While the goal is always to promote independent, confident learners in the classroom, educational therapy focuses on developing the underlying processes needed to acquire basic skills.  Students work one-on-one with their learning specialist with programs that are typically practiced 5 times a week.  Most students attend an hour two or three times a week followed up with structured home practice.  We provide parents sufficient training and support making this option a great way to get the intensity needed for brain change without extensive time in our center.  Student’s intervention plan often involves at least two phases.  The first phase strengthens weak underlying skills that created the problem in the first place.  The second phase catches students up in academic or executive function skills.
