HeadStrong Learning Center takes a different approach to Educational Therapy. We are highly trained and certified in the top Educational Therapy, Orton-Gillingham, and tutoring programs. We review cognitive and achievement testing, primitive reflex, vestibular and auditory checklists and questionnaires, and informal assessments. We use this information to develop a plan to address the underlying cognitive, sensory-motor, and neuro-developmental areas of weakness that are cause learning to be difficult.
Many centers address the symptoms of learning difficulties. Addressing these symptoms usually, increases achievement for a short period or even or few years. However, if the underlying issues are not addressed the student usually begins to struggle when the curriculum surpasses the gains made. By addressing the root causes of learning troubles, gains are long term, multi-subject, and are felt beyond the classroom. *
Often students do not need tutoring or remedial instruction after our holistic, cognitive therapy program. When students do need remedial instruction after therapy, we find that they progress at a faster pace than students who have not received educational therapy.
At the end of our program, every student is given the nationally normed, WoodCock Johnson Test of Achievement (WJ). These post-therapy scores are used to determine post testing growth. HeadStrong Learning Center never charges for post-therapy testing.
The cost of educational therapy ranges depending on the needs of the student. Many students complete the program in 60 sessions. The cost of a 60 session program is $3,900. The fee includes the use of a learning box (contains all of the materials needed excluding a sound therapy player).
