A MODEL FOR SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL & METACOGNITIVE LEARNING
Clinically Informed Academics® (CIA), is a model created by Jeffrey Kassinove, Ph.D. and Evan Flamenbaum, D.S.W. This approach considers the whole student to formulate effective individualized learning strategies. It combines clinical knowledge with academic interventions to help students improve beyond what traditional methods can achieve. Our CIA platform prepares students to compensate for their learning differences and/or social emotional stress.

"In the year that my son has been in the program, we've seen quite a few of our goals for him being realized. He's regained his confidence, really started to enjoy school, and wants to socialize again."

Academics West has been able to provide our child with a unique classroom setting that provides a customized curriculum and therapeutic support. Academics West truly is a special place that can not only intellectually challenge and stimulate your child, but also provide the therapeutic support that is often missing in other school settings.

I was professionally introduced to Academics/Therapy West, and their founders, Evan and Jeff, in 2014. Since this time, I have collaborated quite closely with them and their team to help a number of students who have struggled to be properly education in a traditional classroom setting. The amazing gains (academically, socially, emotionally, and confidence-wise) I have seen in these students since entering into their highly individualized, flexible, and therapeutic program have been incredible, and I consistently receive positive feedback from the families I have referred to them.
I have watched Academics West grow and flourish over the years and I am thrilled to see how many more students they can assists in their new space!
