Therapeutic Academic Tutoring Services

Evidence-based solutions to keep your child moving forward.

Nurture your child’s lifelong success with our personalized tutoring program based in academic and therapeutic interventions.

Our Mission

… is to touch, move and inspire all those we come into contact with. Stepping forward is our mission. We do this by teaching the mind to think, the hands to work, and the heart to love.

In a time of closed doors, here’s one that’s open.

The disruption of support and resources during this time has left many families feeling anxious and left to fend for themselves when it comes to supporting their child’s success.

We can help.

Our Therapeutic Academic Tutoring Program ensures your child is fully supported, even when it feels like the world is falling apart.

Our Therapeutic Academic Tutoring can be customized to fit each student and family’s specific needs and goals. Our collaborative approach means we work WITH you and your child’s school or program to find the schedule and customized plan that will best work for your family.

With 3-month goal plans, a positive reinforcement/token economy system to motivate and reward students, and a licensed teacher and clinical staff supporting your child every step of the way, we can help your child improve in all areas of academic competence, problem-solving, self-esteem, social skills, anger control, rule-following, and much more!


Our tutoring program is based on your child’s goals, needs, and abilities, and includes:

  • Assessment + 3 Month Goal Plan — Every part of our tutoring plans are intentional with the goal to empower change with actionable/trackable goals, positive reinforcement, baseline-checks, and more.
  • One-on-one and Group Instruction — Your child gets the individual attention and the positive, healthy social interaction needed for well-rounded success. All led by a licensed teacher and trained clinical staff..
  • Multi-Modality Therapies — From customized academic strategies to Functional Behavior Assessments to Dialectical Behavior Therapy we align your child’s strengths, needs, and goals with the right academic and therapeutic interventions
  • Family & Parenting Support For better days for everyone, we know parents need support, too! That’s why we provide family & parenting resources and guidance to help make life at home easier for all.
