Frequently Asked Questions

How long does educational therapy take?

1

Educational therapy is more akin to a marathon than a sprint. There is no true time table. Goals, motivation, strategies and willingness to partner all factor in determining the efficacy of educational therapy.

 

Our commitment to you: we will "kick you out" of educational therapy when your child is ready. Most students and parents are actually ready to graduate from educational therapy before they realize--we will make sure to tell you.

 

The goal of educational therapy is to be done with educational therapy. We LOVE getting to tell you that your student is now an independent and autonomous learner and we're graduating them from working with us.

What is a typical session like?

2

Typical sessions vary in accordance with the individual psychoeducational goals established for your child. For students who are younger (elementary-aged), remediation will occur through gameplay, homework, and individualized projects that are appropriate for their psychoeducational goals. For example, a student struggling with math will not be doing history in the session.

 

For students who are in middle school and high school, remediation usually needs to occur in the homework. Middle school and high school students are typically much busier and more anxious coming into educational therapy--they need to feel like they've left sessions accomplishing something tangible.

 

All work conducted within sessions will be aligned with the specific goals of your child. Each learner is very different and as a result, the strategies and remediation provided will be specific to your individual learner.

Can you bill my insurance?

3

Educational therapy is not covered by insurance. Educational therapists do not have licensure in the state of California and therefore, we have no insurance codes to give you. We are able to provide a superbill to you but we've never had a client be able to figure out how to get insurance to reimburse them--if you are the unicorn that figures it out, PLEASE let us know!

What ages do you work with?

4

We serve students of a11 ages. We have educational therapists and specialists who specialize in different areas--this will be something we discuss on our phone call.

Is my child a good fit?

5

We will discuss this further on our phone call, but if your child is struggling or anxious about school, yes, they are a great fit. If YOU are struggling, noticing gaps and worried about your child's academic performance then yes, they are a good fit!

During the pandemic, is Kapp Educational Therapy Group offering in-person sessions?

6

We're proud of the way our clinicians have responded to pivoting to virtual sessions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Virtual sessions have been profoundly meaningful and all clinicians and clients have established deep rapport and meaningful intervention virtually. 

 

A very small amount our current clients and clinicians have opted to resume in-person sessions. We take health precautions very seriously and there are firm protocols established around this. This is a clinician driven-decision and is not available to all new clients.
