Educational Therapy & Executive Functioning Skills Coaching

Our educational therapy program is designed for students with needs related to learning disabilities, learning differences, dyslexia, AD/HD and executive functioning. Your child will consistently meet with the same engaging, warm, and positive educator.

Through highly individualized programming using evidence-based methods and multi-sensory learning, your child will gain confidence and independence. Programming evolves as your child learns skills and strategies to address learning gaps. Sessions include practice and application of skills using actual classwork. Our educational therapist is committed to accessibility and a collaborative approach with your child, family members, teachers, and other specialists.
