Why Choose Us?

What is the difference between
Therapeutic Instruction and Tutoring?

What makes us different?

 

When choosing a therapist to help your child there are many considerations to keep in mind, including educational background, proven areas of expertise, scheduling flexibility, breadth of program offerings, and whether they are a good match personally for your child. We know that with the right amount of intense therapeutic intervention, we can make changes in a short amount of time. We believe that a brief  ”time out” from what is not working can provide a child with what they need to access instruction in their traditional classroom.

When choosing a therapist, tutor, or educational specialist,
keep in mind the following:

 

Schools aren’t built to have the time or resources for the level of individual intensity that we are able to provide.

Tutors may teach school subjects or provide support with homework. If you are looking for someone to help with homework or re-teach subject content from their classes, then a tutor is a good choice.

Larger companies may limit or focus on their own programs that they are able to provide. However, most learning difficulties are not single in nature, rather there are many areas of challenge that co-exist making remediation more complex.  We strive for a deep understanding of both the symptoms and causes because that is what is necessary for optimal and efficient intervention.

Our tools

 

We have compiled programs and exercises for developing underlying “mental tools” needed for success, not only in reading and writing, but in every area of LEARNING and ATTENTION:

  • We stress the Learning Continuum as our point of evaluation and programming decisions. Where schools and tutors do their work on the top two steps of the continuum and make accommodations for weak areas, we are actually training the weaknesses to be strong enough to not need any accommodations or modifications.

  • We have a specific and sequential Auditory Stimulation Training system.

  • We have refined our Auditory, Memory, Processing, and Attention programs.

  • We have a CORE Learning program developing motor skills, internal organization, visual skills, body and attention awareness.

  • Our tools include Samonas Sound Therapymetronome and audio-vocal training.
