Why see an educational therapist?
Instruction at school may not be enough for your child. There also may be a lack of understanding of your child’s academic struggles. Schools often do not help your child with specific skills, like studying or writing papers.
In these cases, you may want to supplement with an educational therapist. A traditional tutor may not understand your child’s learning and attention issues. A professional like a doctor or a psychologist isn’t trained to meet academic needs. Educational therapists fill the gaps.
What is educational therapy?
Educational therapy demystifies learning issues stimulating awareness of an individuals strengths. Educational therapists use a broad approach to learning and have extensive experience working with kids with learning disabilities and attention issues.
Educational therapists work one-on-one with students, typically outside of school, giving one the ability to learn their strengths and use those strengths for their advantage. By helping students manage their learning or attention issues, school work improves by overcoming and/or compensating for areas of weakness maximizing learning achieved. Educational therapists build your child’s academic skills and self-confidence.
Educational therapists create and implement treatment plans by using a wide variety of informational sources. Some sources include, but are not limited to a client’s social and emotional strengths and weaknesses, important psychological, neuropsychological and psychoeducational information.
If educational therapy sounds broad, that is because it is. There is no strict definition and currently there is no state licensing for educational therapists. Which means insurance will not cover educational therapy.
