Pamela is the Founder and Director of Eduktiva, a psychoeducational center that promotes educational inclusion by providing support to children with learning difficulties. At Eduktiva, they firmly believe in the power of education and sustain that all children can learn, not in the same way or at the same time but if we support them with the right tools, all children can thrive. Eduktiva provides assessments and interventions to create a personalized learning plan tailored to a child’s needs. They work in early intervention with children from age 1 and offer support up to high school level. Eduktiva’s team of psychologists collaborate with parents and teachers to create the best plan with proven strategies that promote solutions to academic struggles. They offer workshops, school consultations, and teacher and parent trainings. The efforts of the work that Pamela and Edukativa do are meant to have a positive impact in children’s’ lives and help them to build self-confidence. Pamela does this work because she is impacting children’s well-being and contributing to their future.
