Educational Therapy provides individualized, remedial instruction to a child with learning challenges, including but not limited to dyslexia, ADHD, executive function deficits, and language, visual and auditory processing issues.
Educational therapy focuses not only on remediation but also on building the foundational attention, memory, and learning skills to allow the child to become a more self-aware, self-reliant, and efficient learner.
After an initial and thorough assessment, an individualized plan of treatment and session schedule is created, taking into consideration the whole child, his/her school life, home environment, and social engagements.
Generally, a child receives Educational Therapy twice a week, but a more intensive* course of therapy may be recommended when a child’s skills are significantly delayed. My decision to serve students in private practice is the result of 19 years teaching special education (grades K-12), education research for my doctorate degree in Education Administration and Leadership, and my experience cross-culturally as a Fulbright Scholar, International Conference presenter, and published education researcher.
My expertise is in Executive Functioning Skills- Time Management, Organization, Study Strategies, Research Skills, and applying Mental Models for better decision making. Each student is unique in their learning profile, and I connect how they learn best, with the right strategies to help them maximize their potential in school and in life.
