Info

We offer sessions in our Redondo Beach office, our Palos Verdes office, in-home, or virtually!

Working in a one to one setting, students have the opportunity to hone their academic skills in the areas in which they are struggling. An initial intake meeting is scheduled to discuss presenting problems, review and complete paperwork, and conduct an informal assessment. Following the intake meeting, we will review diagnostic evaluations and other relevant materials, in order to develop an educational plan that will be presented to the client at the following session.

Educational Therapy

Using a variety of research-based tools and techniques, we work with each student to develop straight-forward, easily understandable methods to access school curriculum. By tailoring and scaffolding instruction, clients are able to build a foundation of primary skills. Educational Therapy is not a traditional scholastic tutoring session in which homework or school projects are the focus. However, if an assignment lends itself to a particular skill we are working on, it will be incorporated into our lesson. When working with students who are struggling with Executive Function and Non-Verbal Learning Disabilities, incorporating schoolwork is more common. In addition, organization, time management, and long-term assignment planning may also be integrated into the sessions.
