"Truly, Sean and his team have pulled off what I think can seem impossible for so many families who have children who are not accessing their education and therefore not making appropriate academic progress. Sean is an expert who is a solid team player and at IEP team meetings - he comes with data driven evidence to support and drive the student's needs...He knows the system because of his unique experience as an educator and I cannot say enough about how he has helped my student clients and their families approach learning in a refreshing and positive way.

What is the EF Specialists approach to Educational Therapy?  

At EF Specialists, we understand the power of individualized instruction, progress monitoring and team coordination to support your student in reaching their IEP goals. Through a combination of solution-focused questioning, the cultivation of resource-based thinking and reverse engineering, we will help your family chart a pathway to reaching your academic, social-emotional and transition goals, while supporting the development of the skills and habits necessary to remain successful when your student arrives at the ideal destination. 

Our approach to Educational therapy demystifies learning differences and stimulates clients’ awareness of their strengths so they can use those strengths to their best advantage to overcome or compensate for areas of weakness.

Our Educational therapists on staff create and implement a treatment plan that utilizes information from a variety of sources including the client’s social, emotional, psychoeducational, and neuropsychological profiles.

What is the difference between an Educational Therapist and a tutor?


While a tutor generally focuses on teaching specific subject matter, an educational therapist’s focus is broader. Educational therapists work as a team with parents, teachers, and other professionals to set goals and develop an intervention plan that addresses not only academic difficulties, but also psycho-educational and socio-emotional aspects of life-long learning through an eclectic combination of individualized intervention strategies.
