How is Educational Therapy Different From Tutoring?
An Educational Therapist is a trained educator, specifically trained in neuroscience to work with children experiencing learning challenges. Educational therapists teach children skills and strategies to help them manage their issues and improve classroom experiences. Educational therapists have extensive training in developing intervention plans, administering assessments, and implementing research-based best practices to address specific learning challenges. A traditional tutor typically supports a specific academic content area.
