Educational Therapy
Educational Therapy may mean several sessions to evaluate and understand challenges, or ongoing support in order to mitigate those challenges.

When an individual or a child and their family choose to seek new ways of approaching their challenges the process includes:

  • time to understand current issues and develop future goals
  • time to learn how to reach their goals
  • time to implement their new learning skills and refine them
  • time to practice developing the stamina, flexibility and persistence to use their new skills in multiple areas of their lives
  • systematic skill development to improve attention and organization, reading fluency and comprehension, mathematical reasoning, or other learning barriers.
