Communikare’s Remedial Therapy
A special educator works with children who have below-average intelligence for their age,
causing them to struggle in the classroom due to issues with social maturity, analytical skills,
or physical abilities. To help youngsters acquire a normal level of academic functioning, we
employ a variety of pedagogical methods. We work with children diagnosed with Specific
Learning Disorder (SLD/LD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism
Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and Intellectual Difficulties (ID), among other neurological issues.
A remedial therapist, on the other hand, works with children who have average or
above-average intelligence but struggle in particular scholastic areas. Remedial programmes
are designed to address the specific areas of problem and ensure that the child can perform
well in school.
Remedial therapists and special educators are distinct from tutors. A tutor focuses on
academics, but a remedial therapist or special educator focuses on a child’s specific areas of
weakness. For instance, if a child has been diagnosed with Dyscalculia or demonstrates
trouble with mathematics, a tutor will require repeated repetition, whereas a remedial
therapist/special educator will employ specific strategies to help the child comprehend
numbers and facts and teach easier approaches.
Our areas of focus are:
- Reading Skills – reading and understanding information
- Writing Skills – spelling, handwriting, writing expression
- Math Skills – basic and advanced
- Information Handling – perception and memory
- Study Skill
- Social Skills
- Functional Academics

Impact of Remedial Therapy
As children mature, the demands placed upon them increase dramatically. A student in the
fourth or fifth grade is required to sit and attend lengthy classes. A child with
neurodevelopmental issues might find this challenging to manage. Here, remedial therapy
comes into play.
Early on, children with neurodevelopmental issues have academic difficulties that cannot be
overlooked. Early intervention provides them with the opportunity to learn coping
strategies in their areas of concern, develop self-confidence and abstract thinking more
quickly. They are better able to achieve academic objectives and acquire more knowledge.
Communikare’s Remedial Therapy Process
We begin with a history to better understand the areas of concern, followed by an informal
evaluation to determine the grade level at which the kid can handle material in the area of
concern. We explain the assessment results to the parents and develop long- and short-term
goals for the child with them. The Individual Education Plan (IEP) is then developed based
on the results of the evaluation and the parents’ goals. Regular progress monitoring and
post-intervention evaluation are conducted. Parents play a crucial role in all therapy sessions
and goal setting
Benefits of Remedial Therapy
- Remedial therapy can assist with deficiencies in academic skills such as reading,
writing, mathematics, time management, cognitive abilities, and memory.
- Enhancement of academic skills through the acquisition of coping strategies and
Identification of learning types.
- Social skills development.
- Increase in sitting endurance and concentration.
- Better comprehension and management of behavioral patterns.
In remedial therapy, communikare will do informal assessments to determine a child’s
academic problem areas and grade level. After completing the assessment, a report is
compiled and given to the parents.
