This intervention is language-based educational therapy targeting areas of weakness in processing, memory, attention, oral and written language, reading, spelling and math. The student discovers how to learn in a what to learn world. Parental support is essential and some meaningful homework expedites improvement. Students meet twice a week with the therapist.
