What is an Educational Therapist?

An educational therapist is much more than a tutor.

He or she is highly trained and can combine educational and therapeutic approaches to teaching.

This is not just homework help. This is building the foundations for academic success now and in the future.

 

An educational therapist goes beyond teaching content.

S/he creates an intensive and individualized teaching plan to address the root causes of learning problems and help build a foundation for academic success that reaches far into the future.

S/he addresses the underlying learning abilities particular to your child, such as visual and auditory processing, attention and focus, and memory skills.

Educational therapists use information pulled from a variety of sources, including the student’s social, emotional, psycho-educational, and neuropsychological profile.

For more information about educational therapy, please go to the Association of Educational Therapists.
