Our options for treatment include:
At Morrissey-Compton our educational therapists and educational specialists specialize in working with children and adults with learning differences. Traditional tutors focus on current academic content being presented in class, while our specialists use a broader, research-based approach. They are able to remediate foundational skills in reading, written language and mathematics as well as teach specific study skills to address working memory and organizational deficits.
Our specialists also provide executive function therapy and coaching tailored to your specific learning profile. When students are struggling with challenges that extend across several subjects in school and into other areas of their life, a tutor simply will not be sufficient.
The staff at the Morrissey-Compton Educational Center provides individual psychotherapy services to children, adolescents, young adults, and adults experiencing a broad range of social, behavioral and emotional difficulties. Our therapists use a variety of therapeutic modalities, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, behavior management, psychodynamic, art therapy, and interpersonal therapy.
