Ep 21: How an educational therapist can help your child thrive with Rachel Kapp and Stephanie Pitts

Play
Read more

Have you tried everything you can think of to support your struggling learner, yet they still struggle? In this episode, I’m talking with educational therapists and cohosts of the Learn Smarter Podcast, Rachel Kapp, and Stephanie Pitts. Educational therapy is different than tutoring because it focuses on helping students develop the strategies they need to become independent learners.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • What an educational therapist does
  • Why the goal of a good educational therapist is to work themselves out of a job
  • How parent’s focus on student potential without addressing concerns can negatively impact a child’s academic performance, self-confidence, and family relationships
  • The importance of executive functioning and organization as students transition into the middle and high school years

About the Guests:

Rachel Kapp, M.A., ET/P

Rachel grew up in Los Angeles. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts with Honors in Sociology and minored in Jewish Studies. Rachel began tutoring students in high school, eventually choosing to pursue a career in education. For over six years, Rachel was a lead preschool teacher where she gained a firm foundation in explicit teaching. Rachel has been a tutor in private practice since 2004, working with students in a variety of subjects including all levels of math, reading, history and writing. After working with so many types of students over the years and realizing she was passionate about building relationships with and helping students who learn differently, Rachel decided to pursue Educational Therapy. She completed her coursework at the California State University, Northridge in December 2015 and Masters degree in December 2016. In her free time, Rachel loves spending time with her husband, Adam, and their dog, Fritzy, watching Cal Football, cooking for friends, and spinning.

About the Host:

Janice Scholl has spent her entire career talking about money and business. Through her time as a commercial banker, consultant and mentor to budding entrepreneurs, she helped clients create solid business and financial strategies to help propel their business to success. While working with aspiring female entrepreneurs, Janice noticed that the same four themes kept repeating:

  • Many women are uncomfortable with finance, both in their business and in their personal life.
  • Women want access to more women mentors and advisors.
  • Women often start businesses because they feel the corporate world doesn’t fit their lifestyle. Few are motivated by purely financial reasons.
  • Mothers didn’t want money to drive their family decisions.

From these themes The Money, Career, & Motherhood Podcast was born. Now Janice spends her time helping mothers gain confidence and understanding about money, career, and business topics as they relate to motherhood and family – the way many women actually think about money. Janice loves helping mothers implement business and financial strategies within their families to help each family member thrive.

One of the biggest struggles with ADHD is executive functioning deficits. These are skills in the areas of planning and organization, problem solving, task initiation, working memory, self-regulation, and self-awareness. Many kids with ADHD are often two to three years or more behind same-age peers in these areas. And, yet, these skills are crucial to success both at home and at school.  In this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast, I’m talking with educational therapists and hosts of the Learn Smarter Podcast, Rachel Kapp and Stephanie Pitts. Listen in to learn how to identify lagging executive functioning skills in your child, as well as how to improve and accommodate these deficits.

Learn Smarter: the Educational Therapy Podcast with Rachel Kapp and Stephanie Pitts [IEP 124]

Play
Read more

On today’s episode, Amanda and Vickie welcome fellow-podcasters, Rachel Kapp and Stephanie Pitts from Learn Smarter: the Educational Therapy Podcast, whose show is based on the work that they do as educational therapists in the greater Los Angeles area. They work one-on-one with learners with different learning profiles and teach them how to become independent and autonomous learners.

They started the podcast because not enough people know about educational therapy and the services that they offer, and since their services are rather expensive, they wanted to offer their knowledge to people who didn’t have access to therapy due to geographic location, scheduling conflicts, or financial considerations.

Rachel has an office in Beverly Hills, while Stephanie’s office is located in Redondo Beach.

Show Highlights:

  • People can claim to be “Educational Therapists” without having the background or training because the industry is not regulated. Please check the Association of Educational Therapists website to make sure that the person you’re interested in working with is properly certified.
  • Rachel and Stephanie provide an overview of their educational background.
  • Executive functioning is a huge area of need that they serve, but they also work with kids who have ADHD or need writing and math remediation.
  • Rachel and Stephanie share some of the most popular episodes of The Learn Smarter podcast, as well as a series that inspires hope:
  • 02: How to Calender
  • 10: ADHD and Executive Function
  • 20: The Perfect Storm: Writing and Executive Functioning
  • Success Stories Series
  • Learn Smarter’s fundamental beliefs are that all students want to please and all students are able to learn.
  • Not every parent has the same academic experience as their child and might have a hard time empathizing, so creating a deeper understanding from parent to child is very important.
  • Rachel and Stephanie relate their favorite success stories.
