Educational Therapy is a specialised form of teaching that is designed to meet the individual learning needs of students who face challenges in traditional academic settings, particularly those with dyslexia, attention disorders, or other specific learning disabilities. It goes beyond traditional teaching methods, offering a tailored approach to help children build essential academic skills and confidence.


In Educational Therapy, we figure out what’s standing in the child's way. We look at behaviours children may have developed to hide their issues. For example, they might throw a tantrum to avoid starting homework because they know it’s going to be frustrating.

Educational Therapy starts with the skills a child is lacking and uses different strategies to build them. Most children also need help learning how to learn. That means planning out a task, getting organised, and getting over the hump of just starting. Children also need to understand the point of their work. What skills are they supposed to be practicing? That helps them figure out which strategies they should be using for a given task.


An Educational Therapist also helps children form a routine. Routines help children get started without wasting a lot of attention and willpower convincing themselves to sit down and work.


Educational therapy is not a one-size-fits-all approach; rather, it is an individualised and dynamic process that evolves with the student's progress. It aims to empower students to become independent learners, equipped with the skills and confidence needed for academic success.

Early Intervention

Our methodology, inspired by the innovative philosophies of Montessori, Waldorf, and other renowned early education programs, is carefully tailored to address the unique needs of children requiring special education.

At Squarepegs, we are dedicated to redefining early intervention with a distinctive and personalised approach.

In our commitment to holistic development, we acknowledge the individuality of each child, extending our focus beyond traditional education methods. Our approach strives to nurture cognitive, motional, social, and physical growth, ensuring a well-rounded developmental journey.

Drawing inspiration from Montessori and Waldorf principles, our environment promotes exploration, creativity, and a genuine love for learning. While embracing the core tenets of Montessori, we recognise the importance of customisation for special education needs, incorporating necessary tweaks to ensure a more inclusive and supportive learning environment.

Unlike conventional special education methods, our methodology is relaxed and places the child at the centre of the learning experience. We prioritise creating a positive and enjoyable atmosphere, allowing children the freedom to engage in activities that spark their curiosity and align with their unique interests.

Central to our approach is the freedom of choice, empowering each child to select activities tailored to their preferences. This freedom not only fosters responsibility and independence but also cultivates a lasting love for learning.

We are committed to understanding each child's individual needs. By amalgamating evidence-based practices with the creative and flexible aspects of Montessori and Waldorf philosophies, we craft personalised intervention plans that respect the child's pace and preferences within the realm of special education.
Join us on our journey to unlock the full potential of every child. Together, we build a foundation for a future filled with confidence, curiosity, and a lifelong love for learning, uniquely tailored to the needs of each child in our care.
