What is the difference between a Superpower Mentor and traditional therapy?

The Superpower Mentors are not licensed healthcare professionals. Mentors provide guidance, advice, and support through their lived experiences. Mentors are trained through a proprietary course developed with counsel multiple educators and industry professionals. 

Although clients have stated on multiple occasions that their child has gained more value out of their mentor relationship than their therapist relationship, Superpower Mentors are by no means a replacement for emotional and social health professionals such as therapists and psychiatrists. If your child is in emotional distress please consult your dedicated medical advisors.

Does my child qualify for your program?

Our program is designed for children and young adults 7-25 who have diagnosed or undiagnosed learning differences. If your child fits under the above criteria there is a place for them in our program.

Does my child need to be diagnosed with a learning disability to be eligible for a mentor?

No! Your child does not need to be diagnosed with a learning disability to be eligible for a mentor. All children and young adults are unique and everyone learns and experiences life differently. If you want to pair your child up with a mentor, please book your free strategy call so we can best understand your specific needs.

What happens if we don’t like our mentor?

In the rare case you do not like your mentor, we will work with you closely to align you with someone who fits your liking. There is no added cost with this service. Our safeguards currently in place are designed to be proactive in case you do not like your mentor. More often than not, if the pairing is not viable, we will have been made aware within a couple of weeks of the match and reach out to make a switch as soon as this comes on our radar.

Do you take insurance?

Unfortunately, we do not take insurance or accept FSA/HSA. Some clients have been able to have this service paid for through their child’s institution or educational sponsor.

My child is resistant, what do I do?

It is quite common for mentees to be resistant at first. Mentees are coming to the table with years of therapists and other doctors trying to “fix” them. With this in mind, our strengths-based approach is meant to break down those barriers and start establishing trust. We do not try and “fix” mentee and, in fact, we do the opposite. We do more than help each mentee realize that there is nothing inherently wrong with them. We help them understand that their “disability” is actually a SUPERPOWER!

When it comes to approaching a resistant child, we suggest highlighting the positive aspects of the mentorship program and finding common interests between the mentor and your child. You don't need to convince them to participate fully in the program—that's our job. All you need to do is encourage your child to join a quick 5-minute call, and we'll take it from there. If you continue to encounter resistance, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at hello@superpowermentors.com.
