Educational Therapy

What is Educational Therapy?

Educational therapy is a general term used to describe the work an educator does 1:1 with learners, typically outside of school. Educational therapy is broad and individualised, therapists help build your child’s academic skills and self-confidence. The work they do can be quite varied.

Social, Emotional & Metacognitive Capacity Building

Supporting children to recognise, manage and advocate for their emotional and learning needs for school and life


We work one on one with children with or without a formal diagnosis to develop a strong understanding of themselves. We support them to determine their social and emotional strengths, develop their awareness of emotions they experience and how to implement taught strategies to manage their emotions. We support your child's social success through developing their social awareness and relationship skills, while helping them to recognise their strengths, talents and interests that can help build their self concept and add to the lives of their peer group. 

Our staff can also support your child's metacognitive learning - that is learning to learn. We can work (with permission) onsite at school or at our offices to teach children how to access learning when your brain thinks differently. Organising information, accessing resources, working tough and seeking help are all examples of ways our staff can support your child.
