Learning Therapy may not be the difference between life and death, but it is often the difference between success and failure. For some individuals, school comes easily. For others, it heralds a downward spiral of educational defeat, poor self esteem, anxiety, self doubt, and embarrassment. Many of the individuals who have learning issues have average to above-average intelligence. These individuals are unable to succeed in school because they can’t read and have difficulty with organization. We must all recognize that learning disabilities are a lifelong challenge.
Attention-deficit disorder with or without hyperactivity (ADD/ADHD) is a neurological disorder causing difficulties with sustained focus and concentration. The absence of proper support and intervention to help a person learn how to manage this disorder can result in chronic frustration, discouragement and academic under achievement. Many people confuse the differences between what a learning coach and a tutor does. So what's the difference? A tutor generally focuses on teaching a specific subject matter, while the focus of the learning coach is broader.
As a learning coach, I use therapeutic techniques. I collaborate with the significant people concerned with the student's learning. I focus on remediation, and the underlying learning skills needed to help clients become more self-aware, self-reliant, and efficient learners. As a learning coach, using therapeutic techniques, I am able to foster the development of self-advocacy skills to help clients succeed in multiple settings, by addressing the interrelationship of emotions and learning by providing a safe environment in which the client may explore elements of learning . In addition, I help the student create goals, strategies and skills to become successful in an academic environment. By helping the client to set goals and develop an intervention plan, the client can address not only academic difficulties, but also psycho-educational and socio-emotional aspects of life-long learning.
