Who we are...
GeerLINKS Educational Therapy provides a variety of therapies for children ages 5-18 who learn differently. Our therapies provide foundational links to help your child become an independent and lifelong learner. Our highly qualified Educational Therapists offer an array of services that treat the underlying cognitive and perceptual weaknesses that often get in the way of this learning process. We focus on how to learn, rather than what to learn!
What we do...
Each of our therapies is scientifically researched and has neurodevelopmental underpinnings. Educational Therapy is not tutoring, but instead helps strengthen weak areas of the brain so that learning can take place more easily. These foundational links are like cogs and gears working together in tandem to enhance the thinking and learning process. These interventions can help re-wire the brain!
What they say...
We prayed for four years for the right support person to help us on our journey with our energetic, strong-willed son, who had been rescued from the chaos of trauma near his first birthday. After trying different schools, we stumbled upon NILD and was directed to GeerLINKS. And there I heard, “it can be helped”. It is not a bandaid program, but building from the bottom up. We know it will take time, but for the well-being and future of our son, this is worth every investment. Thank you!… Read more
We’ve been doing therapy for 2 years. All therapists at GeerLINKS are compassionate, knowledgeable, and supportive. What our family loves about this program is that it’s individual and fun! Not only our now 12-year-old daughter loves going, but we noticed great improvement in academic and sensory areas in which she struggles. Fantastic program!!!
I would absolutely not hesitate to sign your child up for the Rx for Math Discovery Program organized through GeerLINKS. After one year of the program our daughter has gained the confidence she needs to approach math equations. We feel it has broke open some clogged pathways. She’s on a roll now! Her recall has improved, allowing for a boost to her working memory issues. We are so grateful for this program.
After many concerns and worries in my mind for my son, Diane put all of that to rest. I now know that I am NOT alone, NOT crazy, and NOT doing the wrong thing for my child. I now feel empowered to continue on educating him, knowing that he works a little different and that’s ok. We still have choices to make in guiding him through his education for sure; however, it is so much easier knowing the direction we are headed now. Thank you Diane from the bottom of my heart! You are such a blessing to … Read more
How refreshing to hear from a conference workshop speaker who taught in such a way that surpassed my own enthusiasm for the topic discussed! As a mom to young children, and currently homeschooling, the information was very practical. Hearing Diane’s passion, personal experiences & professional input helped me walk away from the workshop feeling encouraged and inspired.
I am so lucky to have met Diane Geerlinks! As a behavioural Optometrist, I am intrigued and very impressed with the intervention programs that Diane offers. It is very evident that Diane truly cares about each one of her clients and is always actively seeking how ways – like Vision Therapy – to further enhance their learning success. I cannot recommend Diane enough for children who are struggling with learning!
We are so thankful for the commitment of Diane Geerlinks and her team to help build a solid foundation for learning in our children. Diane is creative and knowledgeable in finding programs that meet the needs of each student. She works hard to ensure each child weaknesses are strengthened, while celebrating success and fostering a life-long love for learning.
As a conference speaker, Diane’s heart for helping others, for seeing students succeed, not only academically, but in every area of their lives, shines through. Those privileged to be in her workshops always leave with practical, real life strategies presented with passion and enthusiasm.
The time our son spent with GeerLINKS Educational Therapy has been a blessing to all of us! He has not only learned to read, but has become more organized, better able to focus on the task at hand, and gained control of his impulsive actions and emotions.
It is an incredible joy to see the growth in my son after two years of therapy… academically, enhanced attention and focus, as well as improved confidence. I am so thankful for the opportunity to invest time and resources to see this enormous progress.
