Educational Therapies & Counseling
EYC Academy’s well-rounded approach blends academics with therapeutics. Examples include our PAWS for Reading program, which allows students to read aloud to a therapy dog to improve their reading and communication skills in a fun and positive environment.
LD AND GIFTED TESTING SERVICES
Students who are gifted or who suffer from learning disabilities or ADHD often struggle in school. When this happens, it’s important to find out why. Aided by a professional school psychologist and an educational examiner, we provide prompt, formal assessments designed to pinpoint the reasons behind a struggle and formulate a coaching strategy.
Our personalized educational consulting and advocacy services are helpful for parents who aren’t sure of exactly what their children’s needs are or how to address them in school. We will meet with parents to help them prepare for school meetings by arming them with the right questions to ask their educators.
Our one-to-one approach extends to private tutoring services outside of your child’s regular educational schedule. Our tutors work to build rapport and instill confidence in students, focusing on their individual needs in all content areas.
We offer professional test preparation services for standardized tests. Our individualized approach helps to build the skills, confidence and momentum students need to achieve success, no matter what their post-graduation plans.
SOCIAL SKILLS & SMALL GROUP CLASSES
Using both formal and informal assessments, we work to design individualized programs for students who have difficulty with language, communication, and social interaction, to maximize their potential.
EYC Academy partners with homeschooling families, as well as those who are transitioning out of a homeschool situation to ensure maximum success. Most of EYC Academy instruction is done in a one-to-one setting,
