We address the core thinking and language processes so learning can be approached with curiosity and confidence.

What to Expect

What to expect when you contact us:

A Free Initial Consultation

  • During an initial phone call, we ask and answer questions about the individual.  Then we schedule a complimentary consultation to review assessments, reports, and work samples and to make initial recommendations.

 

A Detailed Assessment

  • An assessment may be recommended to determine the underlying cause of difficulty.  We offer full and partial academic assessments that explore the following areas:

                      Vocabulary
                      Listening Comprehension
                      Reading Comprehension
                      Reading Fluency
                      Word Attack Skills
                      Phonemic Awareness
                      Math Concepts
                      Writing Skills
                      Critical Thinking

 

  • The assessment process takes 3-6 hours.  Assessments are nationally-normed and age appropriate.  The focus of the assessment is based on the individual’s needs and areas of strength and weakness.

 

  • Approximately 1-2 weeks after the assessment, the results are explained in a consultation.  Each assessment is reviewed and a comprehensive report is provided.  Recommendations for instruction are also discussed.

 

An Individualized Learning Plan

FRL recommends Learning Plans based on each individual’s learning strengths and weaknesses.  The goal of the plan is to build the underdeveloped processing skills and apply them to daily learning and thinking tasks. 

We may recommend a plan in one of the following areas:

Educational Therapy

What is Educational Therapy?:   Educational Therapy is an intensive educational intervention that goes beyond traditional tutoring. Educational Therapists provide educational and therapeutic approaches to develop and apply the learning process.  FRL provides Educational Therapy to individuals with diagnoses including: Dyslexia, Autism, Asperger’s Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Nonverbal Learning Disability, and other specific processing disorders.

How is an Educational Therapy Plan implemented?:  We administer process-based, structured and systematic therapy in one-to-one sessions.  We assume nothing.  The foundational skills are trained or re-trained and built upon.

Academic Coaching

     Many individuals have the core learning skills needed for reading and comprehension, however they struggle to apply their skills.  They may have difficulty with organization, note-taking, and test preparation.  Academic Coaching is implemented in one-to-one sessions.  We mentor individuals in organizing work and social activities to see the “big picture” of their time commitments.

Math

Writing

Putting thoughts to paper can be a daunting task for individuals of all ages.  At FRL, we specialize in demystifying the writing process.  With a structured, organized process individuals can focus on their ideas and vocabulary and create strong paragraphs and essays.

Little Learner's Club

Rhyming, sound identification, and memorization are important indicators of reading readiness.  Through play-based activities, these specific pre-reading processing skills can be developed and strengthened.  All youngsters can benefit from pre-reading activities and fun!

Home Schooling

Parent Involvement
