Educational Therapy

Educational therapy is the clinical practice of utilizing specific methods, strategies, tools and approaches to help support academic success in students. These strategies are based upon the individual's specific learning profile, strengths and weaknesses.

Educational therapy is provided for students who may have learning disabilities such as dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, auditory processing deficiencies, language processing deficiencies, vocabulary weakness, visual processing problems, math disabilities, or difficulties in phonetic reading, reading comprehension, critical thinking inferential skills, written expression, organization and time management skills, memory weakness, low self esteem, test taking anxiety. While every student with learning challenges is different, the goal of educational therapy is to address and remediate whatever is interfering with a student reaching his highest level of proficiency.
