What Is Educational Therapy?
Although everyone learns differently, it is estimated that millions of children and adults with average to superior intelligence are experiencing academic difficulties. Educational therapy can help these individuals progress and fulfill their learning potential.
Educational therapy is personalized, remedial instruction for individuals experiencing learning differences and disabilities, including but not limited to, dyslexia, ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, executive function deficit, language, auditory and visual processing deficit.
The primary goal of educational therapy is to foster self-confident, independent learners who understand their learning profiles and can advocate for themselves.
What’s The Difference Between An Educational Therapist And A Tutor?
While a tutor generally focuses on teaching specific subject matter, an educational therapist’s focus is broader. Educational therapists work as a team with parents, teachers, and other professionals concerned with the student’s learning, and focus on remediation by building underlying learning skills.
Educational therapists have extensive training and experience administering academic assessments, developing intervention plans, setting goals, and teaching strategies to address challenges with reading, writing, spelling, math, organization, and study skills.
How Long Does Educational Therapy Take?
Educational therapy is a highly individualized process, and because each person’s needs are unique, the length of time varies based on the goals that are established by the student, parents, and educational therapist.
