In my educational therapy practice I offer intervention and remediation for primary and middle school students that defines and addresses their learning strengths and weaknesses. I work at identifying and addressing their underlying neurodevelopmental profiles, while remediating academic skills such as reading, writing,  math, and organization.  My goal is to nurture the whole child and to help children appreciate and understand their unique blends of strengths, weaknesses, affinities and learning styles.
