In anticipation of our fall opening, Reid Day School and Center for Brain Based Excellence (RDS) is now offering educational therapy services to twice-exceptional (2e) students in Orange County and the surrounding areas.
Although we aren’t actively enrolling students until the beginning of the new school year this fall, we are currently providing educational therapy to the overall gifted and twice-exceptional community.
Educational therapy offers children and adults with learning disabilities and other learning challenges a wide range of intensive, individualized interventions designed to remediate learning problems. Educational therapy demystifies learning problems and stimulates a 2e person’s awareness of their strengths so they may use those strengths to best advantage to overcome or compensate for areas of weakness. In partnership with Summit Center, our educational therapists specialize in creating and implementing treatment plans that utilize information from a variety of sources including a 2e person’s social, emotional, psychoeducational and neuropsychological context.
After our fall opening, we will cater to 4th through 6th grade 2e students, offering personalized, interactive group instruction programs in the format of a traditional school day. In addition to providing services for our students, we will offer psychological and educational services for gifted and 2e children, adolescents, and families in the community. This includes evaluations and assessments, counseling, parent education, gifted parent consulting and development of differentiated education plans.
