Remedial Therapy

Remedial therapy is aimed at children from Gr. 1 – 4 on an individual basis, twice a week. The aim is to bridge the gap between present learning and desired future learning. The focus is on assisting individuals who suffer from conditions that interfere with learning, such as ADD, ADHD, dyslexia (difficulty with reading, writing, and spelling) and dyscalculia (difficulty with mathematics).

When learning problems go unnoticed, children develop feelings despondency, and as they become increasingly aware of their lack of success, they give up and spiral downward. Emotional problems that develop in children with learning difficulties can be more incapacitating than the learning difficulty itself. This email address is being protected from spambots.

Remedial therapy is a multidimensional approach intervention, tailor-made to a child’s precise needs. It makes use of written work, verbal work, one-on-one instruction, and computer-based programmes.

Remedial therapy focuses on skills and knowledge rather than on content. It addresses the problem area from where it originated and then re-establishes the basics to ensure the child overcomes the problem area and enjoys success.

Remedial therapy consists of all dimensions that offer learning support to learners in reading, spelling, writing and mathematics. This includes visual discrimination, perceptual organisation, vocabulary, reading, spelling rules, understanding of what is read, writing skills, numerical understanding and mathematical operation.
