Who are we?
Educational Therapists of the Carolinas (ETC) is an association of professionals who are dedicated to helping individuals who struggle to learn acquire the skills necessary to become successful life-long learners. Our therapists are trained in the National Institute for Learning Development (NILD) model of educational therapy.
What is educational therapy?
Educational therapy is an individualized program of intense intervention designed to strengthen specific areas of vulnerability and improve the student's ability to process information and think independently. Trained therapists provide students with two 80-minute sessions each week. A variety of targeted techniques are utilized to address each student's individual learning profile as determined by a series of psycho-educational tests.
What do we believe?
Those who struggle to learn often feel like second-class citizens with little hope of ever overcoming the challenges they face. Educational Therapists of the Carolinas recognizes that all people are created by God with a great propensity for growth and change. We believe it is our mission as therapists to partner with students in developing the confidence and competence they need to achieve their fullest God-given potential.
