QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
What makes us different from the rest:
Educational Therapy is used to address academic issues in individuals with learning differences, disabilities, and needs. It offers intensive interventions designed to resolve a a child’s learning deficits. It also combines an understanding of how children learn and the ways in which social and emotional needs can impact learning.
Educational Therapy is steeped in the knowledge of specialized teaching methods, and uses that understanding to investigate, define, and address an individual’s learning strengths.
No! Tutors and educational therapists can help kids do better in school. But they may do this in different ways. An educational therapist (ET) is a professional who combines educational and therapeutic approaches for evaluation, individualized intervention, case management, and educational advocacy on behalf of children and young adults with learning disabilities.
Tutors are great, but ET’s provide intensive interventions to help kids work on foundational skills. ET’s are trained to recognize signs of learning and thinking differences and how these issues affect academics and behavior.
Technically, none, although there are national associations that guide our standards. All of our therapists have a minimum of a Master’s Degree in Special Education and at least a decade in the classroom working with children with disabilities. And, because we work with so many school districts, our ET’s have extensive training and experience in intervention strategies specific to learning differences.
The short answer is that any child will benefit from educational therapy. Specifically, children with disabilities like Autism, ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, Down Syndrome, or any related learning and developmental disabilities, and ANY child with an IEP or 504 program at their school.
We offer over a dozen educational assessments to identify present levels in reading, writing, math, and social/emotional development. We can offer ongoing assessments or a complete battery of academic assessments for a total picture of a child’s present levels. See our Assessment page for a complete listing. We also offer educational advocacy, to protect your child’s educational rights, and ensure your child is getting the right services.
Our founders have over three decades educating children with disabilities. In 2018, we left the local school district and created NEAT Services to address the needs of families in the community.
Since our inception, we have worked with hundreds of families to improve academic and social/emotional learning. We become part of your educational journey, attending school meetings, and ensuring your child’s supports are in place. Give us a call today to schedule an initial consultation.
