Educational Therapy

A DIFFERENT APPROACH CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE

Educational Therapy offers a higher level of support for children with learning challenges, such as Dyslexia (reading disorder), Dysgraphia (writing disorder), Dyscalculia (mathematics disorder) and ADD/ADHD, to address differences in cognitive functions and learning styles. We bridge the gaps that impair children from learning in the classroom and completing assignments independently, be it at home or in school. We work collaboratively with parents, teachers, and other supporting professionals (speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, psychologists, vision therapists, etc.) to ensure consistent reinforcement of the child’s individual goals.

Each student in our Educational Therapy programs receives a customized Learning Plan created by our director.  Our team of educational coaches is guided and supported by our director to deliver carefully tailored lessons to help your child reach his or her fullest potential. As part of our Educational Therapy program, you will receive a personalized Session Report emailed after each session to ensure that you know how your child is doing throughout our process.  Each program includes a cumulative Progress Report, which you will review in a conference with our director at the end of each term. Our attention to results and parent collaboration distinguishes us from other tutoring centers that don’t provide measurable standards for monitoring student progress.

We offer sessions in our centers in La Jolla and Carmel Valley, as well as at private school sites during the school day for your convenience.
