What is Educational Therapy?

Educational therapy offers children and young adults with learning differences specialized and individualized strategies to remediate learning challenges and help students thrive in their academics and life. It’s a transformational process in which the learning coach unlocks the student’s learning potential through a tailored therapeutic approach.

As educational therapists, we work closely with families, school personnel, and allied professionals to inform and enhance our practice and the psycho-educational process. We create and implement individualized learning plans, goals, and recommendations based on reports and assessments and serve as case managers. We gather information from various sources and consider the client’s developmental, social, emotional, and psychoeducational context. Upon gathering information and understanding the child’s learning challenges, we plan specialized strategies that are responsive to the child’s learning needs and strengths and improve their academics and self-confidence.

Our goal is to create autonomous, confident, and resilient learners. We want our clients to feel empowered, understand their learning styles, trust their decisions, and enjoy the learning process.
