Are you concerned your child has fallen behind?
Are you concerned your child’s IEP is only addressing the goals and not the underlying causes?
This year has been like no other. Families have been tested beyond their boundaries. Teachers have provided unprecedented levels of teaching. Some students have thrived in the online world while others have struggled.
We know at PranaMind that stress significantly impacts learning. We provide a tranquil environment that allows for your child’s optimal learning. In addition, research has proven that movement is key to brain development. PranaMind has developed an educational therapy program that begins with work in a dedicated physio room. Movement and learning go together. Physical activity not only facilitates the birth of new brain cells, also it produces smart chemicals that promote learning.
Educational Therapy at PranaMind
The PranaMind Educational Therapy Program (ETP) offers your student a multi-disciplinary brain-based learning approach that incorporates brain training, therapeutic teaching, academic coaching, and growth mindset to overcome learning and academic problems.
Working with the educational therapist (ET) your student learns in a safe, supportive environment that fosters a positive growth mindset of “not yet” about success. The use of “not yet” shows that there is a learning curve that points to the process and not the outcome.
PranaMind does not believe in the “one-size-fits-all” approach. After a comprehensive assessment and evaluation, the ET creates an individualized plan to build “areas of strengths” and support “areas of need.” Through weekly 1:1 therapy sessions, your student begins to develop and use brain-based learning strategies, positive growth mindset principles and sensori-motor integration to academic, social, and behavioral settings, where learning really happens—real life.
Culture of Collaboration
Parents and the ET share the same goals, they want the student to do his or her best. The ET works with parents to form a “culture of collaboration” that is an information exchange focused on specific outcomes and coordinated efforts. The collaborative culture is a supportive learning environment to ensure clear communication about “our” learner’s progress.
There are seven interconnected modules that form the materials and resources used by the ET in sessions. The modules are as follows:
