Child Development is what Teachable Kids is all about

Is your child struggling? If so, Robert A. Schaefer at Teachable Kids can help! I will design an individual child development instructional program based on your child's specific areas of need and influenced by your concerns. Teachable Kids strives to serve each child based on their unique abilities, from those who are not meeting academic, social, or emotional expectations to those who just need a one-to-one extra boost of support and the benefits of private instruction.

Using a variety of assessment tools and clinical teaching strategies, I will determine how and prioritize what your child needs to learn. I will then target those skill gaps and create instruction using research-based methods and proven classroom techniques. Teachable Kids, is completely student-focused!

My motto is: All children do well when they are being instructed in a manner consistent with how they learn. All kids are Teachable Kids!
