CDM’s new Mind Lab provides intensive educational therapy.
Designed for families with soured parent-child relationships over homework struggles or students in academic crisis.
The Mind Lab offers specialized support for students, age 13-20, who require immediate assistance with managing their schoolwork. Experienced educational specialists will assist your family in the creation of a short- and long-term goals, partner with your student’s teacher(s), and establish a plan for success. Students of the Mind Lab will gain practical skills for addressing classwork challenges, as well as learn how to effectively prepare and navigate school. Participants will have a personal space to complete projects and homework, and our instructors will help engage with each student to regain lost motivation.
Registration is now open for upcoming sessions. Two or four days per week options available, fees start at $450/week. Students are monitored in a small group environment over the duration of each two hour class, with a 15 minute individual pull-out with a master educational therapist. The intent of the Mind Lab is to teach students how to be productive learners, it is not a tutoring program for specific school subjects. Please contact the clinic for an intake appointment to determine if the program is appropriate for your student.
