My educational therapy practice has a strengths/interest-based, whole-child, developmental approach. ADHD may come associated with other challenges. I help students with various profiles, to discover their gifts and to learn about themselves as learners. I work in the academic areas of reading/spelling, writing, math and study skills. Children with ADHD often need help with executive functions, so I incorporate executive functions training in the sessions, no matter what academic area we are working in. When the student’s attitude toward learning is compromised, I also help the child discover how thoughts, feelings and actions are interconnected and influence learning, and how they can make positive changes to enhance learning. The sessions often include mindfulness exercises, movement and games. For students with dyslexia I use the Orton-Gillingham approach and the Wilson Reading System program.
