The Road to Educational Success

As an Educational Therapist in private practice, my role is to help struggling learners develop competence and confidence for school and life. FIE training has been invaluable in developing my skills in using mediation to strengthen student thinking, problem solving, and observation. FIE skills transfer across academic areas and grades.  In truth, FIE coursework has improved my teaching in the classroom, in a one-on-one setting, and in life. I recommend FIE wholeheartedly and without reservation.
