Do you want to better understand your child's difficulties in math and which skills they need in order to successfully move forward?

~Educational therapy offers children and adults with learning disabilities and other learning differences a wide range of intensive, individualized interventions designed to remediate learning challenges and build resilience.

 

~Educational therapists create and implement a treatment plan that is data-driven and considers information from a variety of sources including the client’s social, emotional, psychoeducational, and neuropsychological profiles.

~Educational therapy  demystifies learning differences  and stimulates clients’ awareness of their strengths, so they can use those strengths to their best advantage to overcome or compensate for areas of weakness.

~We help learners develop the mathematical knowledge and skills into Algebra 1 that they need to be successful in school and in life.

Having experienced challenges with math and learning at an early age, I understand first-hand what it feels like to struggle in school; it is also a major reason that I can relate to what it feels like for your child. As a parent, I can empathize with what it feels like to have a child that struggles with learning and executive functioning issues.

 

It is my goal as an Educational Therapist to help you identify and better understand the underlying learning issues that are preventing your child from moving forward.

 

Let's work together to help your child learn how to achieve greater success in math.
