Bridging the Gap between Learning and Success

What to Expect Working with an Educational Therapist

Educational therapists specialize in providing targeted support to individuals, particularly children and adolescents, who struggle with various academic skills such as reading, writing, and mathematics. One of their key areas of expertise lies in working memory support and executive function coaching.

Working memory refers to the ability to hold and manipulate information in the mind over short periods of time, crucial for tasks like following instructions, solving problems, and completing assignments.


Executive functions encompass a set of cognitive processes that include self-regulation, organization, planning, and task initiation. Strengthening these skills can significantly improve academic performance and overall learning outcomes.

Educational therapists employ a variety of techniques to address these challenges. We utilize structured interventions aimed at enhancing working memory capacity, such as mnemonic strategies and memory games. Additionally, we offer executive function coaching, helping students develop strategies for goal-setting, time management, and task prioritization.

Moreover, we integrate principles of self-compassion into our practice, fostering a supportive and non-judgmental environment where students feel safe to explore their learning difficulties and develop resilience. This emphasis on self-compassion encourages students to approach challenges with a growth mindset, viewing setbacks as opportunities for learning and growth rather than failures.

Incorporating play and educational games into therapy sessions is another effective strategy we employ. Games provide a fun and engaging way to reinforce academic skills while also promoting social interaction and emotional development.

Overall, educational therapists play a crucial role in supporting individuals with learning differences by addressing working memory deficits, improving executive functioning, fostering self-compassion, and integrating playful learning experiences into their practice. Through personalized interventions and supportive guidance, they empower students to overcome academic obstacles and reach their full potential.
