Educational intervention provides individualized, remedial instruction to a child with learning challenges, including but not limited to dyslexia, ADHD, executive function deficits, and language, visual and auditory processing issues. Educational therapy focuses not only on remediation, but also, on building the foundational attention, memory and learning skills to allow the child to become a more self-aware, self-reliant and efficient learner.
After an initial and thorough assessment, an individualized plan of treatment and session scheduling is created, taking into consideration the whole child, their school life, home environment, and social engagements. Generally, a child receives Educational Therapy twice a week, but a more intensive course of therapy may be recommended when a child’s skills are significantly delayed.
How is an Educational Interventionist different from a tutor? The most significant differences between an educational interventionist and a tutor are training, goals and strategies, and services provided. Educational interventionists have specific training and experience with learning disabilities/differences, as well as training in the socio-emotional effects that can impede the learning process. A tutor is not necessarily trained in therapeutic assessments and interventions and is generally skilled in a specific subject.
