Education Intervention Services
Available for children in Preschool - 2nd Grade
What is “education intervention”?
Traditional tutoring focuses solely on teaching materials and concepts. However, there’s more that goes into understanding a concept or learning something new than just drilling the material.
As clinically trained Education Interventionists, we have a child-centered approach. This means we teach the whole child and take into account what contributes to their learning style or to learning roadblocks. Within our sessions, we tackle learning goals and social-emotional goals simultaneously to ensure that the child, not just the lesson, is taught.
what we work on with children
Reading, Phonics, & Decoding
Early Numeracy & Patterns
Regulating Emotions & Behaviors
Stress & Learning Anxiety Management
We teach children their ABCs, letter sounds, and 123s, as well as students in elementary school that need support with the concepts they’re learning at school.
When nightly homework time becomes a battleground, we work with children and families to lessen the tension and improve understanding of the academic material.
Our sessions are 60 minutes long, with 50 minutes of instructional time and 10 minutes spent debriefing parents/caregivers.
Before starting sessions, we arrange a consultation with one or more parents to learn more about the child’s needs and collaborate on session goals. Then, we use an evaluation to get a sense of the child’s skill level and develop the curriculum based off of those results.
During the session, learning and social-emotional goals are worked on by using our own customized materials, books, games, and at times the student’s own homework. As part of our child-centered approach, our interventionists are creative in their approaches, which is customized to each individual student. We often incorporate play-based learning and other methods to engage the students and help them to grow to love learning.
At the end of each session, parents receive a session report detailing how learning and social-emotional goals were worked on and include recommendations on how to continue practicing at home.
Frequently Asked Questions
can the sessions focus on more than one subject area?
Yes! We want to work with your child on anything that they need support in. For children in preschool, sessions typically focus on Early Literacy & Numeracy, and some elementary school students receive support in Reading, Phonics, & Decoding as well as Mathematics.
There is no limit to what your child works on within sessions; however, if your child needs support in multiple subject areas it might be beneficial to have more than one session per week in order to allow time to sufficiently cover all of the material.
How frequently should my child have sessions?
Each child’s needs are different. Some benefit from a once weekly session, and others prefer twice a week support. During the intake and evaluation process we will gather the information we need to make our recommendation. We do not recommend more than twice a week sessions, as this will lead to burn out.
What are the rates and prices?
We offer the option to pay-as-you-go for individual sessions as well as various packages. Rates & prices vary depending upon the frequency of sessions and what type of support your child needs. Fill out our intake form and we will respond with a price within 24 hours.
