Although learning techniques are becoming more flexible and inclusive of children from different learning strengths, it is also very possible that your child may be unable to reach their full potential in the classroom. Remedial Therapy is recommended to children who suffer from certain learning disabilities such as dyslexia, ADHD, ADD or perhaps even just need a little extra help and attention.
Remedial Therapy has often come to be associated with children that are disruptive, difficult or lazy. It should be noted, however, that these assumptions are untrue and can be very harmful to how children feel about their academic ability. A Remedial Therapist will be able to guide children on how to best understand and execute their schoolwork.
Remedial Therapists work on an individual level with children as opposed to the general teaching techniques that we see in classrooms. A Remedial Therapist is required to evaluate a child through examples of their past work, and figure out certain patterns where the child may struggle. Through these patterns, a Remedial Therapist will create a specific program or course of action that will be the most effective and beneficial for the child.
