Educational Therapy strives to support students as they develop tools for independent learning in the classroom and in life.  It is based on the key components of​ cognition, perception, emotion, academics.

The focus of individualized interventions is to strengthen the underlying causes of an individual's learning difficulties, rather than treating the symptoms as tutoring often does. Intervention is aimed just above a student’s current level of functioning and raises expectations for performance and provides the framework to foster that growth.
