What is EduTherapy?
The word “Therapy” is defined as “treatment intended to relieve or heal a disorder”. Education is “the process of receiving and giving instructions at a school”. When a child is not able to receive instructions (like phonological awareness, phonics, reading and spelling), he may have a disorder called Dyslexia. Educational Therapy or Edutherapy for short, is the use of specific educational treatment approaches to relieve dyslexia. One of the most trusted and effective edutherapy method available is the MSL Orton Gillingham Approach, which I am trained in.
It is widely misunderstood by parents that Educational therapy is tuition. Edutherapy is not tuition nor phonics enrichment classes, where children go to re-inforce what they have learnt in school. *(While I do offer such services in addition to Edutherapy.) Edutherapy is necessary and vital intervention to enable your child to read and spell independently.
While dyslexia has nothing to do with IQ or intelligence, it is however, hereditary. Many speech and language functional disorders may directly or indirectly cause it. It is common to see other conditions like Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Developmental Coordination Disorder and other neuro-psychological disorders, co-existing with dyslexia.
