Students who are diagnosed with learning difficulties are recommended for educational therapy. Educational therapy is provided by a therapist who has been trained through the National Institute for Learning Development* in Norfolk, VA. Through Educational Therapy, students receive individual help to strengthen learning capabilities:
- Memory (Auditory and Visual)
- Visual-Motor skills
- Phonics/Reading Comprehension
- Cursive handwriting
- Math thinking and reasoning
Therapy sessions occur twice a week for 80 minutes. During each session, the student receives one-on-one intensive therapy which is determined by psychological and academic testing. It is recommended that students remain involved in therapy for a minimum of three years. The long-term goal is to provide students with skills to be independent and confident learners.
