What is Educational Therapy?
Educational success for children is often determined by their innate abilities, their motivation to learn and the knowledge acquired throughout their developmental years. Challenges in achieving positive academic attainment usually arises from delayed maturational processes and/ or poor educational experience. When these issues are not addressed at an early stage before the child enters a formal educational journey, their confidence in learning is compromised resulting in poor academic performance.
Through an intensive, comprehensive and individualized therapeutic programme that identifies children who show specific signs of learning difficulties, the developmental skills necessary for effective learning can thus be strengthened with a systematic and frequent monitoring of their progress.
