Educational Therapy provides individualized instruction for children and adolescents experiencing learning challenges. While a regular subject tutor focuses on teaching specific academic subject matter, Educational Therapists apply specialized training in learning differences and disabilities to address more systemic issues affecting an individual student’s academic performance.
Our Educational Therapy process is a unique and highly efficacious tutoring model in which students acquire the skill sets, self-knowledge, and resiliency they need to overcome future challenges and successfully launch themselves into their chosen career.
"Educational Therapists assist students in reaching their personal academic potential by developing needed skill sets and encouraging self-awareness, focus, organization, and motivation."
Our process at F&B employs a team-based approach in which our Educational Therapists work together with Dr. Freudigman and Laura Noonan, a certified Educational Therapist, to generate a comprehensive plan designed to address the individual’s academic concerns and target the student’s strengths and weaknesses. We utilize the student’s own daily schoolwork to remediate academic concerns related to psychological/motivational barriers, ADHD, executive functioning concerns, reading and language disabilities, math-related deficits, and auditory and visual processing weaknesses. Because every student has different concerns, sessions may range from skill-based remediation to social and behavioral supports. We form supportive relationships and communicate–not just with the student but also with all the people in the community involved in their educational development.
