Our Approach

Individualized Curriculum

Sessions are not a one-size-fits-all approach! Instruction for each child is developed based on assessments tailored to meet the needs of each child. Different multi-sensory modalities of learning are used with each session that match a child's learning style. Individualized plans are closely monitored and adapted to reflect the most current goals and progress.

Social-Emotional Focus

Developing a strong social emotional mindset is a focal point of Shanna’s work with children. Shanna focuses on helping students develop a positive growth mindset, so that they can develop positive associations around learning by tracking and celebrating progress. She also builds relationships with students based on their interests and personalities.

Parent Partnerships

Parents are critical to the work that Shanna provides students. They are involved in every step of the way ( often observing and participating) in the work that’s taking place. Shanna is also available to advocate for students at school meetings to establish appropriate support at school.
