About Educational Therapy

Educational therapy is a cross disciplinary profession, drawing on the strengths of psychology, speech and language, pathology, audiology, education, and other related clinical professions. Educational therapy differs from tutoring in that it focuses on the child’s individual learning challenges and develops strategies to overcome or compensate them, thus circumventing the learning deficits and finding achievement.

Following a thorough assessment of the student, the educational therapist creates a customized, research-based program that is designed to address the individual's specific needs. The goal is to create an independent, self- motivated, and successful learner.
