Tutoring and Educational Therapy

Children who are struggling with the academic and/or organizational demands of school may benefit from working with a tutor or educational therapist. Both types of professionals support your child’s learning, although the extent to which they address the underlying causes of the academic problems depends on the professional’s training and expertise. For more information about some of the differences between tutors and educational therapists, please see this helpful article.
