The Pyramid of Learning


A free initial 1 hour assessment is offered to highlight areas of possible underlying weakness and to determine if Pathways to Learning is right for your child.

Further in-house assessments are carried out once the child starts with Pathways to Learning. Information gathered from these assessments is used to devise your child's individual program.

Parents are also asked to complete a developmental questionnaire and a sensory profile questionnaire. 

Individual Sessions

Individual sessions are for 1 hour and are usually attended once or twice a week. 

With permission from your child's school these sessions can take place throughout the school day either at your child's school or in rooms in the center of Whangarei. During your session your child will work one-on-one with one of our dedicated team. Their program will be individually tailored to meet your child's specific needs. This program may include several of our programs and can be adapted to meet the changing needs of your child at any time.
