The advantage of applying clinical methods to education

  • All programs are individually written for each student.
  • We consistently provide high degrees of accountability. Students are pre-tested to accurately individualize their program, and post-tested after 27 hours of instruction. Pre and post testing scores are compared to monitor each student’s progress. Progress and recommendations are discussed at the student’s end of session conference.
  • Our reading program graphs and plots reading accuracy every 7 ½ minutes.
  • Our Mastery Teaching approach has students recite their knowledge 100% of the time with 100% accuracy.
  • Programs are built around carefully sequenced skills for mastery of larger goals.
  • We deliver instruction based only on the skills the student lacks.
  • Rewards and positive affirmation including a token system that motivates students to earn toys, gift card and treats.
  • We deliver educational programs intensively and for short periods of time. Intensive work is the fastest way to ensure educational growth and skill retention.
  • Our Director Judy Hintz is qualified to diagnose the many current labels such as dylslexia, dysgraphia and autism. These labels carry the danger of faulty stigmatization of the student. This reinforces more negative outcomes at school. We dig deeper to find each student’s strengths to build on them, while working on deficiencies.

Reviews From Our Happy Clients

“Thank you for helping Jacob. It feels so good seeing his confidence in reading. We are excited to see what he can do in school next year!”
Jan, Angie and Jacob
I wanted to let you know that our daughter had a 4 year checkup/physical with Dr. A. yesterday, per your suggestion.

Dr. A did not see any indication of a spectrum disorder in our daughter and was very surprised to learn of that diagnosis.

Per Dr A. requests, I have signed medical releases for Educational Resources and Dr. Y so we will find out Dr. Y’s actual file contents. Once they are reviewed, Dr. A agreed they should be destroyed.

I also wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking a personal interest in our daughter. She is improving by leaps and bounds each day. We both love your program and each employee that we have met. What amazing people you are. (just to warn you, we may never leave.)

Warmest regards.

Judy, when we spoke I forgot to provide you with an update after she finished her thirteen weeks, to bring her reading level up from the 2nd grade (she is a high school freshman now), I offered to enroll her in DMACC Spanish I class – but she needed to take the COMPAS exams that cover reading, writing and math. I told her not to expect to do too well on the writing and math because she was only a high school freshman. Her reading score was 80/100! Not bad for a high school freshman who was reading at the 2nd grade level last fall. Educational Resources did a great job with her. Thank you.!
To Judy Hintz and the Educational Resources team

We are SO thankful we found Educational Resources. Our son was about a grade and a half behind in school and only showed minimal progress in closing the gap, in spite of countless hours of meetings with teachers, administrators as well as AEA resources.

In December we had some testing done at Educational Resources and he started seeing Judy and team three hours a week as their testing indicated reading comprehension issues, which we always knew existed but the school system was a bit slow to acknowledge. We thought if we could close the gap on these issues, additional issues we have seen with math and other areas might follow as well.

For some context, we had seen similar results semester after semester in Map and other school testing. The gap was not closing much. To their credit, the school system has been great in working with us and trying to find interventions with the best intentions in mind and an eye on progress. We just needed something more, and felt the schools hands are tied in some respects about what they could provide us.

We began working intensely with Educational Resources at the beginning of the school year and just finished up at the end of the school year or son retook the same tests at Educational Resources and his score increased substantially …four fold in some areas. In addition, on the school system’s end of year MAP test, he moved from 4th percentile to 44th percentile, in that short time period in reading. He also moved from 4th percentile to 24th percentile in math, we feel in part due to the tremendous progress he has made with comprehension. The needle was only moving slightly before Educational Resources, but he took a huge leap and we couldn’t be more thrilled for him as you can see his excitement over learning and confidence in what he is doing and picking up.

In the end, our family has worked very hard in a collaborative way with the school system as well as Educational Resources with our son’s best interest in mind, but we have no doubt a significant factor in his recent success and improvement was Judy Hintz and her great team at Educational Resources.
