What is Educational Therapy?

Educational therapy is the clinical practice of identifying, creating and using specific methods, strategies, tools and approaches to help support academic success in students with learning challenges.  

 

Educational therapists work to create and implement individualized treatment plans to help remediate learning issues and highlight individuals' strengths, while helping students build self-awareness and strengthen executive skills to become more self-reliant, efficient learners.  

 

Educational Therapists partner with parents, schools and other allied professionals to ensure best student outcomes, providing support with IEPs and 504 plans as well as curriculum accommodations and modifications.
