Summit LearningEducational Therapy
Educational therapy is individualized academic support for students with learning differences, such as ADHD, dyslexia, executive functioning deficits, and more. It enables students to develop the necessary skills and strategies to be successful learners in a classroom environment. An educational therapist works with the parents, teachers, and other professionals on the learning team to help students set attainable learning goals and accommodations. Educational therapists provide targeted one-on-one support, conduct informal skills assessments, and utilize innovative therapeutic techniques to meet the needs of each unique student. Educational therapy aims to identify students' strengths and weaknesses and helps to overcome skill deficits by providing students with tools to become lifelong learners. The ultimate goal is for students to develop strategies to help them not only enjoy learning, but also perform at their highest academic potential.
Summit LearningExecutive Function Support
Executive function skills are a set cognitive skills that include organization, planning, self-control, time management, memory, and more. Adults and students use these skills every day to be successful at school, work, and home. Your executive function skills are like the CEO of the brain, responsible for getting things done efficiently and effectively. Many learners struggle with these skills because they are not intuitive and are often not explicitly taught in schools. If your student struggles with following directions, completing and managing big projects, prioritizing their time, and remembering important things, executive function coaching could be the solution. Executive function coaching aims to work with the student to accurately assess and reflect on their strengths and weaknesses in order to teach new strategies and systems to better manage their learning. The goal of executive function coaching is to provide students with the tool and strategies they need to be successful, independent learners.
