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.
