How is educational therapy different than tutoring?
Educational therapists have bachelors degrees and postgraduate degrees, as well as extensive training in teaching students with learning differences using brain-based strategies rooted in research. An educational therapist takes a comprehensive, clinical approach, helping students understand how they learn best, remediating weak skills, improving executive functioning capacities, and serving as an advocate and case manager. Educational therapists are also knowledgeable about related therapy fields (speech therapy, occupational therapy) and may refer clients to professionals in these areas.
A tutor does not necessarily have an educational background in teaching or learning differences, and could be of any age or educational level. A tutor focuses on supplying students with subject-level knowledge. To read more about the difference between tutors and educational therapists, click here.
How long are sessions?
Online sessions are generally 30 minutes to prevent Zoom fatigue. In-person sessions are generally 50 minutes.
What academic areas do you remediate?
I work with students on math, reading, handwriting, spelling, and written expression. I generally do not provide homework help.
WHAT AGES DO YOU WORK WITH?
Students who know all of the letters of the alphabet and can count to at least 20 will benefit most from my educational therapy training. I accept new students of all ages.
where are sessions held?
Educational therapy sessions are held on-campus at local private schools, in-home, or virtually on Zoom.
IS EDUCATIONAL THERAPY COVERED BY INSURANCE?
Unfortunately, educational therapy is not covered by insurance.
