The Tree Group | Active Learning Center

The Active Learning psycho-educational program is an open-class system

that invites the parents to observe their child’s behaviors and progress together

with the clinician and to learn how a psycho-educational strategy works.

who lost all their hopes because they could not acquire the English language at their English-speaking schools and

started providing bilingual comprehensive psycho-educational assessments.

Unlike most educational settings where group-based classroom and curriculum are a norm, our individualized psychoeducational program is structured to treat one specific child’s impaired or delayed functions through psychological treatment strategies after identifying factors that contribute to delays in language acquisition and leaning as well as cognitive, intellectual, emotional, behavioral, social, and/or neurological problems that were initially identified in the results of the Comprehensive Psycho-educational Evaluation…

Our place, 


It is the place where children who could not speak  
begin to speak, 
the place where children

who were confused with alphabet reading and writing  
begin to clearly recognize written words.


It is the place where children who suffered silently  
begin to make wonderful eye contact. 


Children and their parents are presented with small miracles! 


It is our place.

Evidence-based choice of program according to the psycho-educational assessment


As a clinical institution, the Active Learning Center has accumulated sufficient data to serve a child with a specific problem with an appropriate treatment program. The recommended period of time and number of hours to be taken in each program were set based on the analyses of participants’ treatment progress since 2003.

These treatment programs which were designed based on an Individualized Psycho-Educational Plan (IPEP) include a full-day program, after-school program, and intensive programs provided during school breaks.


The Bridge Program is designed for English-speaking students who are experiencing language transition issues or psychological difficulties as well as Korean-speaking students with extensive language acquisition delays followed by difficulty in following the standard school curriculum.

The Stream After-School Program is a treatment program for students attending either English-speaking or Korean-speaking schools who experience delays in language development followed by learning and emotional behavioral problems at school.

The Summer/Winter Intensive Program is a full-day program that takes place during summer and winter breaks. For primary school students, it runs from 10AM to 3 or 4PM and for secondary school students, from 10AM to 5PM. It is comprised of at least 1 hour of clinical session per week along with 12 to 15 hours of psycho-educational sessions and 10 to 12 hours of ABCMM as well as group sessions centered around a specific treatment goal.
