How is an educational therapy session structured?
A session is structured to cover the goals set at the outset of our work together. Each session will differ, but will usually follow a similar structure. Initially, we review what was previously learned. This is to provide continuity, see what has been mastered, and to assist with direct instruction. The next step involves bringing in new materials. For reading and spelling the structure is similar in that the material typically follows a four step process of looking at meaning, how words are built, connecting them to relatives and then looking at the phonology. This process helps simultaneously with reading and spelling. It helps with grapheme choice and connects the words to meaning, as well as expanding spelling rapidly via meaning. All steps include a multi-sensory component that works to increase retention of information. Sessions often incorporate writing, reading and if needed Real Script work for dysgraphia. Math coverage follows a different set of structures.
