All services are individually designed, based on each child’s unique strengths and targeted goals identified by our certified staff.  We collaborate with each child’s family on the content and direction of the services provided. 


We provide pyscho-educational assessments for children. We work with individual families to help identify potential learning and developmental concerns. All assessments are conducted by a school psychologist from the United States, and are conducted in English. Due to Japanese law, the KENTO Center cannot provide certain medical diagnoses (i.e. Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD); however, we will provide insight into your child’s unique strengths and learning needs. Please contact us for more information about our assessment process.


We offer individual targeted reading instruction using the Wilson Reading System, an Orton-Gillingham based method This approach systematically and explicitly teaches reading for individuals with dyslexia or word-level deficits. Please contact us for more information. 


We offer individual sessions to promote positive social behaviors including interactive lessons on social skills, emotional regulation, conflict resolution, peer relations, and coping skills. Please contact us for more information.


Our mission is to equip families as they advocate for their child’s unique needs.  We provide training and coaching on topics related to learning and developmental differences. We also offer customized workshops for school communities as they develop their academic program to support the needs of their diverse learners. Please contact us for more information.
