Learning Disability Service

Once a child’s learning challenges are identified, the next step is offering follow-up support and treatment. Children with learning disabilities may benefit from having a therapist or educational specialist work with them to develop the skills they are missing and help devise learning strategies to build on existing strengths and compensate for weaknesses.

The Learning Disability Service team will create a nurturing environment for your child to begin building up successful learning experiences, bolstering both his skills and his self-confidence.

For children who struggle with organization, we offer organizational skills training which focuses on starting tasks and working through them, as well as establishing homework routines. For children who need learning support, our team can provide tutoring on content areas, tutoring on strategic approaches to learning new information, and remediation on particular skillsets. Our clinicians are trained in writing, math and reading remediation programs, as well as global approaches to thinking about content areas.

For children who need adjustments made to their school programing, our team can work with the school, ensuring that appropriate accommodations are put into place. We can also communicate with the school and any specialists your family is working with outside the school to ensure consistent communication and support.
