Read/Write Program (offered remotely)


Our most intensive program, the ReadWrite Program is a customized, individualized, structured 9-month program that combines our proven programs (based on neural plasticity), along with individual coaching to support significant growth in reading, writing and executive functions skills. This program is designed for students with learning disabilities or those who are in mainstream school and are at risk of needing to go to a special education school or be put on medication (for ADHD/ADD) and want a more holistic approach or want to stay in their current educational setting.  


Each client will complete a full Tomatis Method+ Program, a full Cellfield Program, and receive consistent and intensive O.T. focused on building neurodevelopmental skills that support their specific needs.  The program consistents of a combination of at-home independent sessions of music listening and reading, along with clinic-based neurodevelopmental sessions and computer-based visual/auditory training. Our primary programs are highly supported in literature including in Dr. Norman Doidge's book, The Brain's Way of Healing.
