Educational Therapy

Educational therapy is a form of therapy used to help students with learning disabilities, attention issues, and other challenges build their academic skills and self-confidence to succeed in the classroom and in life.

Educational therapy bridges the gap between performance and ability.

Unlike subject tutoring, educational therapy focuses on the underlying weaknesses, which create barriers for a student to perform up to their cognitive ability.

Educational therapists have training in education, psychology, learning differences, and how to work with students who have learning challenges.

Qualified educational therapists teach kids skills + strategies to help them manage their learning or thinking differences and improve schoolwork.

Why Work with an empowerED Educational Therapist?

Educational therapists integrate the academic and social + emotional aspects of learning for students who have specific learning disabilities and developmental delays.

Educational therapists create and implement individualized treatment plans by using a wide variety of informational sources.

These include, but are not limited to, a student’s social and emotional strengths and weaknesses, important psychological, neuropsychological, and psychoeducational information, and informal interviews with parents, teachers, and students.

empowerED’s educational therapists take a holistic + strategic approach, working first to understand specific learning challenges, patterns, and behaviors, and then fill in the gaps.

We work one on one with students of all ages and abilities, helping them understand how they learn. We work with the students using research-based educational programs to help remediate their weaknesses.

Simultaneously, we are developing strengths while showing each client how to use those strengths to compensate for any weaknesses.

Because it’s vital to your student’s success, we communicate and collaborate closely with parents, teachers, and professionals throughout the process.
