As moms, we understand the frustration when you know there’s something off with your child but can’t pinpoint the issue. You want to ask your child’s educators questions but don’t know what specific questions to ask. That’s why we have Educational therapists!
In this episode, Wendy Taylor will join us to give us detailed information about how Educational Therapists help families with the D3 journey.
Wendy is a certified Educational Therapist, qualified Orton-Gillingham practitioner, trained Educational Diagnostician, skilled IEP Coach, and the host of the Special Ed Strategist® Podcast.
Educational therapists are not like tutors or academic coaches. Wendy explains how tutors and academic coaches focus on building your child’s concrete skills to keep up with their school work, particularly in just one subject, to improve their grades.
On the other hand, She also touched on how educational therapists undergo extensive training and additional coursework to diagnose and assess individuals effectively to have a deeper understanding of students with learning differences.
She also discussed how ed therapists help kids work on their critical thinking and other skills for lifelong learning. They also coach and empower parents to ask their child’s educators the right questions!
