Description

Best Practices in Educational Therapy provides actionable strategies and solutions for novice and veteran educational therapists. Given the diverse backgrounds of educational therapists and the varieties of specialization and client types, there is no single approach for all therapists and all clients. This book is built on a foundation of individualized intensive intervention, offering generalized principles of application across many contexts. Featuring practices informed by documented experiences of educational therapists as well as research in memory and cognition, attention, speech/language, specific syndromes, and the role of emotion in learning, this well-rounded guide will serve educational therapists at all stages in their career.

Reviews

"Bravo! We finally have a must-read volume that takes the mystery out of, ‘What does an educational therapist do?’ This literary ‘master class’ of best practices addresses our decision-making minds in determining how to apply variable interventions, when to break from the academic craft to therapeutic listening, and how to interact with the client. The frosting on the cake is her comparison of educational therapy and the art of cooking!"

—Dorothy Ungerleider, Founding President of the Association of Educational Therapists (AET) and author of Educational Therapy in Action
