Educational Therapy

I tailor one-on-one interventions that address the underlying causes of learning differences. This method targets the root of the learning difference rather than repeating an ineffective learning strategy as academic tutoring sometimes does. The goal of educational therapy is to create competent, independent, and confident learners by using academic remediation, cognitive therapy, and executive functioning training. Students will gain mastery in cognitive skills and academic skills in order to find success in the classroom.

Bridge to Learning 

Is your child attending a private school and struggling with academics? Private schools can be wonderful environments for learners emotionally, but they can be difficult due to the academic pressures. One way to support your child is to bridge the gap between the information as it is presented in the classroom and how your child processes that information. Megan Gilmore Consulting offers a Discover Your Child’s Learning screening and learning plan. This service will help deepen your and the school’s understanding of how your child is processing information. Additionally, you and your school will be offered a learning plan with strategies to best facilitate your child’s learning.
