OUR SERVICES

What We Offer

EDUCATIONAL THERAPY

Educational therapy offers children and young adults with learning differences intensive and individualized strategies to remediate learning challenges and help them thrive in the academic and life setting. It’s a transformational process in which the therapist unlocks the student’s learning potential through an individualized therapeutic approach. 
Educational therapy teaches students how they learn best; this means teaching skills, strategies, and utilizing approaches that make learning easier, more efficient, and fun! 
As educational therapists, we work closely with families, school personnel, and allied professionals to inform our practice and enhance the psycho-educational process. We create and implement an individualized learning plan, learning goals, and recommendations based on reports and assessments, and serve as case managers. We gather information from a variety of sources and take into account 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.

SUPPORTING ADHD & EXECUTIVE SKILLS THROUGH A COACH APPROACH

We support students with ADHD and executive dysfunction using a strength-based coach approach. Our style of coaching focuses on eliciting behavior change by helping students explore and resolve ambivalence. We gradually invite students to take on their responsibilities incrementally and teach them how their brains work to provide a new lens of understanding themselves. Our approach helps students link their long-term goals to their daily behavior to help them reach those goals. We work 1-1 with students to establish goals, create roadmaps to achieve the goals, ignite intrinsic motivation, develop strong study skills, and improve time-management and organizational skills. Our coaching process fires the learners’ executive brain region by asking the right open-ended questions, evokes personal exploration, and elicits self-awareness that catalyzes goal-setting and change.

ACADEMIC SPECIALISTS

Our academic specialists tailor each session to fit our students’ unique needs, interests, and learning profiles.  We help learners hone academic and study skills, clarify key concepts and vocabulary, utilize imagery, and refine math, reading, and writing skills. Specialists extend their teaching to employ multiple modalities to captivate every learner.  Our comprehensive approach cultivates sustained learning, enhances confidence, and promotes academic and personal growth.

ASSESSMENT

We conduct formal and informal assessments to inform our session interventions better, capitalize on student strengths, and understand a student’s complex learning profile.  In addition to gathering objective data about skills and discovering misconceptions, we begin to build a trusting relationship with the student and observe self-regulatory behaviors. Our assessments provide us with constructive information to establish and prioritize treatment goals and select the appropriate methodologies. After conducting our assessments, we develop a more holistic view of the learner and use the data to guide our sessions and enhance our conversations with the team,  which consists of parents, teachers, and other professionals, to optimize the student’s learning. In the process, we teach students about their strengths and challenges to have a greater self-understanding and advocate for themselves.
