Psychoeducational Coaches

Business Team Members

Psychoeducational coach sessions complement therapeutic sessions to support Falcone Institute's seven program areas. Our educational coaches differ from traditional tutors through their intensive training. Whereas tutors work with existing skill sets, our coaches help clients ‘un-block’ their pathways to learn critical skills.  They are trained to mesh curriculum with emotional management techniques. Our licensed Speech-Language Pathologist provides specialized therapies to further supplement our client programs.
