What Is Educational Therapy?
Although everyone learns differently, it is estimated that millions of children and adults with average to superior intelligence are experiencing academic difficulties. Educational Therapy is one-on-one, individualized, and specialized intervention designed to foster independent learning.

Sheri teaches students impacted by learning differences and disabilities. ADHD, ASD, executive function deficits, and processing delays how to use their strengths to make steady academic growth and progress.

Parents often circle back to share their child’s success stories. Some of Sheri’s former clients became entrepreneurs, web designers, college graduates, arborists, archeologists, biologists, yoga instructors, or gamers. A non-reader in third grade who worked intensively with Sheri for several years recently passed the bar and started her law career. Another is training to become a licensed psychologist. The primary goal of educational therapy is to foster self-confident, independent learners who understand their learning profiles and can advocate for themselves.

What’s The Difference Between An Educational Therapist And A Tutor? 
While a tutor focuses on specific subjects, an Educational Therapist’s scope is broader. Educational Therapists work as a team with parents, teachers, schools, physicians and allied professionals concerned with the student’s social, emotional and academic learning. Learning gaps are identified and addressed and weak foundational skills are strengthened.

Educational therapists have extensive training and experience with academic remediation and specialized instruction, administering academic assessments, developing intervention plans, setting goals, and teaching strategies that target reading, writing, spelling, math, organization, and study skills.

How Long Does Educational Therapy Take?
Educational therapy is a highly individualized process, and because each person’s needs are unique, the length of time varies.
