Celebrating the Incomparable Adolescent Brain

Grades Four through Twelve

 

Each individual brain incorporates a  unique blend of intelligences and strengths.  As an Educational Therapist, I appreciate the  distinctive nature of each student's aptitude and develop a diverse and individualized approach to remediating learning challenges for each of my students.  

 

I consider:  

 

  • Academic strengths, competencies, and potential
  • Intellectual challenges and demands
  • Types of intelligences
  • Limitations, stress, and anxiety
  • Formal and informal assessments

 

I emphasize:

 

  • Building resilence
  • Strenghts rather than weaknesses
  • Intrinsic motivation
  • Potential instead of limitations
  • Developing self-efficacy, self-control, and self-awareness, and self-regulation
  • Goal setting
  • Strategic planning and thinking
  • Problem solving and self-advocacy
  • Metacognitive thinking

 

I remediate:

 

  • ADHD
  • Academic anxiety and stress
  • Language processing challenges
  • Writing 
  • Processing speed
  • Executive functioning
  • Study skills and organization
  • Reading comprehension

I offer:

  • Individualized and open-ended private sessions
  • Time limited -Three months/twelve sessions
  • Summer classes (go to Class Schedule for details)
