What is Educational Therapy?

Educational therapists combine educational and therapeutic approaches for evaluation, intensive individualized intervention, case management, and advocacy on behalf of children, adolescents, and adults with learning disabilities or other learning problems..

Educational therapists create and implement a treatment plan that utilizes information from a variety of sources including the client’s social, emotional, psychoeducational, and neuropsychological context.” - Association of Educational Therapists (AET), 2015.


Educational Therapy vs. Tutoring

As opposed to tutors, who can typically demonstrate subject matter expertise, Educational Therapists are required to obtain a Master’s Degree and have teaching experience before they can be certified in the field of Educational Therapy.

Whether your child is facing difficulty in any learning areas and needs DIFFERENTIATED and INDIVIDUALIZED instruction along with executive functioning skills, Itailor a program that is unique to each student.

Our Educational Therapy sessions begin with an in-depth assessment of your child’s current PERFORMANCE skills level and create an Individualized Plan to build upon current strengths and address weaknesses.

I will meet once a week with parents to share progress and referrals(if needed). I also include your child’s classroom teacher and other related services in planning and progress reports.
