Need help with Back To School?

Back To School is a package of therapy sessions for students making an academic change. It is appropriate for all kids, but especially when they are:

o   rising into a new grade level

o   retained or reclassed for a grade level

o   starting at a new school

o   transitioning to a new school environment during the year 

This service is offered by our Educational Specialists, all of whom have experience as teachers in our local public school systems. The Educational Specialists provide the therapy a student requires to overcome academic challenges. They are experienced in evaluating and treating the underlying learning deficits in the diagnostic subtypes including dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia and non verbal learning disorder. They develop a holistic treatment plan which addresses each student’s individual learning needs as their difficulties impact school success.

It includes 6 sessions that usually occur just before and in the first month or so of the new school year.


The program is designed to be an enjoyable way for students to build confidence and academic skills specific to their age and grade level expectations. It is customized based on individual goals.  Students will learn about personal learning styles and organizational strategies that can be applied to their coursework and school environment.  The Educator provides regular session summaries, suggestions and resource ideas to parents.    


Appointments are available, according to your family‚Äôs schedule.  We recommend two sessions before the start of the school year, followed by four sessions scheduled within the first 4-6 weeks of school.    Follow-up consultations may also be beneficial.  We suggest scheduling those by semester or during holiday breaks.


Cost may vary based on the number and length of sessions.  The sessions are priced at our reduced rate as follows, based on the Educational Services Agreement:  

o   30 minute session: $32.50

o   45 minute session: $48.75

o   60 minute session:  $65.00
