The Goal of Edu-Therapy Learning Center

Edu-Therapy’s goal is to assess, remediate and self-empower each student to be academically accomplished and creatively expressive. Edu-Therapy’s focus assesses the student’s language reception and expression and implements strategies, which empower learning strengths.

 

Innovative and creative tools are woven into individualized programs to stimulate processing strengths and socio-emotional well-being. These techniques nurture positive self-esteem and produce self-confident independent learners. Each student understands their strengths and weaknesses; this produces confident, effective self-advocacy and academic success.
