Our therapeutic approach to learning focusses on building up the underlying skills that help children succeed in school. For this, we use innovative methods based on neuropsychology and brain research developed by the German »Institute For Development Promotion and Clinical Learning Therapy«.

Clinical Learning Therapy is...

  • a scientifically grounded method: Learning based on the current state of research.
  • a school of movement: Movement promotes learning and improves memory performance.
  • a sensory training: Perception is a key factor for successful learning.
  • a learning guide: Roadmap to sustainable, self-reliant and well-structured learning.

Certified therapy

The »Clinical Learning Therapy« is a concept developed by the German »Institute for Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Educational Therapy (IDYAL, formerly known as IigEL)« which has been approved in practice for 15 years. The IDYAL-Institute is specialized in training educational therapists and issues the certificates »Dyslexia Therapist« and »Dyscalculia Therapist« on behalf of the German » Federal Association for Dyslexia & Dyscalculia e.V. (BVL)«.





Important cornerstones of the therapy are...

  • Challenge but not overburden: Exercises are adjusted to the child's stage of development, expanding it step by step.
  • Regular repetitions and revisions to retain the learning progress
  • Sufficient practice time to fill gaps in knowledge
  • Taking concerns, anxieties and sensetivities seriously. Those psychological factors have a crucial influence on a child's learning success from early age up to puberty
  • Strengthen self-esteem and develop confidence in their own abilities
  • Improving focus, attention and perseverance

Yes! In addition to therapeutic services we provide advise and assistance for all parties involved in the child's development and we are always available to answer any questions. We will organize round tables, if required. Parents will get advice and suggestions on how to best promote their child at home and we will help teachers to adapt schooling to the needs of the child. In addition, we advocate for a close cooperation of all funding institutions.

The standard session is 45 minutes. Other lenghts (30 minutes, 60 minutes) are also possible depending on the intervention approach and the child's individual needs.

This is individually different and depends on many factors, including the child's speed of learning and powers of concentration. We continously inform you about the therapy progress and you will regularly get sound recommendations from us on how long the therapy should be continued.
