How Do I Get My Child Started?

🎯Initial Meeting with Parent(s):

We’ll have a conversation about your child’s needs and goals, ensuring there is an understanding of their unique learning situation.

We’ll schedule a series of four sessions for your child, the fourth one dedicated to following up with you. During the follow-up session, we’ll review the action plan in detail, make any necessary adjustments, and determine the frequency of future sessions. It’s essential to keep you informed and involved throughout the entire process.

⭐️Clinician Match:

We’ll match your child with a highly qualified clinician providing weekly sessions tailored to their needs and learning style. Considering your child’s unique learning profile and temperament, we’ll ensure they receive the best possible academic support.

What Services Does LearningByConnecting Offer?

Education Therapy for K-12 Students

Let me provide you with a clearer understanding of my education therapy practice, focusing on the essence of what we offer to parents and students.

As a parent, I understand the concerns surrounding medication for children with ADHD. That’s why I founded LearningByConnecting Education Therapy as an alternative approach to support students with unique learning profiles.

I’m Dr. Christine Powell, an experienced educational therapist with a background in special education and research. With over 19 years of expertise, I specialize in working with students facing challenges like ADHD and other learning differences.

My practice is built on research in neuroscience, learning science, and behavior theory. Through personalized one-on-one sessions, I focus on crucial skills underlying all learning, such as focus, planning, organization, goal-setting, and behavioral control.

What sets my practice apart are the success stories. My clients regularly see improvements in their academic performance, higher test scores, and an increased sense of confidence in their learning abilities.

While I can’t guarantee straight A’s on every report card, I invite you to learn more about how Education Therapy helps students become more successful. Contact me for a free 20-minute discovery session to discuss your child’s unique needs.

I am deeply child-focused, advocating for learning strategies that align with each student’s individual learning profile. Together, we work to improve and enhance the learning lives of students facing ADHD, executive functioning disorders, dyslexia, reading and processing barriers, and other learning differences.

In our Education Therapy sessions, we offer virtual sessions with a school portal and assignment tracker, homework planning, grade reviews, and skill development. We provide flexible options of 1, 2, or 3 weekly 50-minute sessions to support students’ learning goals and establish structure and organization.

Additionally, we offer specialized programs like Summer and School Break sessions, as well as ‘Mind Gym’ Crash Courses for both adults and children.

We believe in the importance of family involvement, which is why we offer weekly family check-ins. Through these check-ins, we work together to establish homework routines, schedules, and healthy boundaries.

Our services also encompass academic testing, special education advocacy, and consultation, ensuring comprehensive support for your child’s educational journey.

I am truly dedicated to helping students rise to their potential, become the best versions of themselves, and gain confidence in their ability to acquire and apply knowledge. If you’re ready to explore how Education Therapy can make a positive impact on your child’s learning, please reach out to me.
