approach.

Saad Art Therapy and Educational Services is an art therapy-based approach to emotional and cognitive growth. Visual, kinesthetic, auditory, and artistic expression is integrated into sessions to reach each client.

art therapy

Art, in its many forms, is the least threatening and most easily personalized activity found to help children of all ages communicate and express themselves. Art therapy allows children and adolescents to express themselves without relying on verbal language. It is a welcoming form of expression that helps one communicate and gain greater insight into one's needs, challenges, and strengths.

yoga

Understanding that the mind and body need to be relaxed and be “available for learning,” Sophia found that yoga and breathwork, a historically proven practice, helps children and adolescents connect to their mind and body, improving self-regulation and attention. Yoga allows for stretching, exertion, and quiet focus on one’s physical self. Like art, there is no incorrect yoga; there is only the individual’s version of yoga.

tutoring

Using the Orton Gillingham approach, clients are provided with a structured, sequential method for reading development. Being in the special education field for over 10 years, Sophia understands that each child learns in their own way, which is why other multisensory programs, such as Sounds in Motions are utilized. In addition, art therapy is included in sessions to promote academic confidence, regulation, and cognitive strategies.
