How Brighter Futures Works

  • When beginning with Brighter Futures, students will be evaluated using formal and informal assessments and observational tools. This will allow the therapist to accurately create a treatment plan based on the child's deficits as well as strengths and needed accommodations. 

  • Students attend Brighter Futures for at least one hourly session per week. 

  • Weekly data will be collected and progress shared with parents. 

  • Therapist will work as a case manager and advocate for the child by communicating and collaborating with allied professionals in the child's life. 

  • Formal and informal evaluations will be given on an on-going basis to track progress and growth.

Who Brighter Futures Can Help

  • Grade Level: We specialize in working with students who are toddlers up to students at the end of elementary school. We will also support older students who are performing at a lower grade level. This will be determined on a case by case basis. 

 

  • Learning Differences: We work with students with a variety of learning differences and/or diagnoses. Specifically, students diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, IDD, ADHD, various learning disabilities and difficulties are our specialties. We also work with young children in an early intervention model who may not have a diagnosis, but are showing some developmental delays. 

 

  • Academic Weaknesses: We work with students on the following skills: Math fluency, mathematical computation, math problem-solving, phonics, reading fluency, reading comprehension, and various cognitive skills.

The Brighter Futures Focus and Philosophy

We specialize in ‘child-led, sensory-based, whole body learning’

  • Child led: We do our best to follow a child’s interests and leads so that they have more of a connection and motivation to what they are learning.

  • Sensory based: We use multiple modalities to help a child’s brain make the connections that they are missing. Although there is a time and a place for ‘table work’, this is not our main way of working with a kid. Our preference is games, activities and critical thinking skills which will help to give students the foundation they need in life.

  • Whole body: If a child has motor or speech delays, we will work on those also, because many times those delays are also why the child is struggling in school. Our goal is to help build a well-rounded child with skills that will last them for their lifetime. 

 Brighter Futures specializes in teaching children from toddler/preschool age up through elementary school age.
