List Of Services and Descriptions:
At Invigorate Education we offer a service called “Instructional Therapy”. Instructional therapy is a way to address both the educational, cognitive and social/emotional/physical parts of a child.
There are several types of instructional differences that may be treated using educational therapy. Our goal at Invigorate Education is to promote the independence of your child, both socially and academically. At Invigorate Education we work with children who have some of the following learning, social and/or emotional “disabilities”.
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Dyslexia & Dysgraphia
Processing and sensory disorders
as well as several other disorders (please inquire)

Goals & Hours:
Instructional therapy goals vary based upon the child. Each child is given an individualized plan of action which outlines their strengths and weaknesses and how we plan to address the whole child and each deficiency.
With each child we are looking to overcome deficiencies in the following areas:
● Speech and Language Development
● Reading, Writing & Phonics
● Mathematics (formulation, reasoning etc.)
● Memory & Retention
● Physical Aspect of Learning (concentration, mechanics of writing, willingness, school attendance adversity, socialization with peers, self-esteem)
● Homework assistance
● Time management
Those children who are receiving Instructional Therapy services from Invigorate Education are required to attend classes or sessions for at least 3 hours per week. Instructional Therapy will be broken up into modules. The modules your child will participate in will depend on the results of his or her assessment or evaluation.
Modules include memorization, reading, mathematics, behavioral therapy (which helps improve poor behaviors & thoughts), and developmental activities that assist with improvement across several areas.
Small Group Instruction
A small group at Invigorate Education never has more than 10 children. With small group instruction children receive reading, writing and mathematics assessments. While these assessments are not as intense, nor are they diagnostic, they provide us with a clear definitive outline of the scope of your child’s reading, writing and skill in mathematics.
Small group instruction is offered multiple times per year. There is a schedule listed which outlines the class start dates and availability. All small group classes are limited to 10 children. If your child is between the ages of 5 and 12 years, you are more than welcome, if not encouraged, to enroll your child in small group instruction.
During small group instruction, we do our best to address the individual needs of the student and the needs of the group simultaneously. Students are grouped into classes based on age and current reading level.
