ABC Tutors Specializes in Working with Students Struggling with Learning Disabilities

When someone is referred to as having special needs or has a learning disability that can mean many different things.

Often when we hear the term “disabled person”, we think of someone who has severe developmental issues or physical limitations. When you hear the terms “special needs” or “learning disability” that often means the individual may not have severe developmental or physical limitations, but they do struggle with processing information and require special education plans to help them succeed academically.

Special Needs Tutoring

Children that have been diagnosed with a learning disability are often at an academic disadvantage, when compared to their peers. A child struggling with a learning disability may exhibit a lack of motivation or frustration during schooling, and they may especially struggle with subjects like mathematics, reading, and writing.

At ABC In-Home Tutoring we specialize in working with students K through 12 that have Individual Education Program’s (IEP’s) for specific learning disabilities.

A student with an IEP, a special needs student, will ultimately require more attention throughout his or her education. Unfortunately, sometimes teachers, and in school special needs programs, are not able to provide the proper one-on-one attention that IEP and special needs students require. Many times, this is due to the ratio of teachers to students, limited resources, or lack of qualified special education teaching staff.

Students with Processing Issues Benefit Greatly from In-Home Tutoring

Information processing issues can affect everything from reading, writing, mathematics, speech, organization, and more. It doesn’t mean that something is wrong with a student, it just means that they don’t excel or learn as well in a normal classroom environment.

A student with a processing issue may have trouble retaining or applying information, completing an assigned task, or staying focused during test taking when compared to other students not struggling with a learning disability.


Tutoring a Special Needs Student Requires Time, Patience, and Expert Knowledge

At ABC Tutors we have years of experience and knowledge when working with special needs students, our instructors understand what it takes for students with learning disabilities to find academic success.

The first step to unlocking their potential is diagnosing their strengths and weaknesses and determining where they need help the most.
Once we can pinpoint the areas that need improvement, we essentially fill in the gaps that are missing through exposure, repetition, and practice.


Learning Takes Place in The Proper Environment

At ABC In-Home Tutoring we understand that overcoming the distractions of a normal classroom environment can be a major hurdle. A student with a learning disability may find it hard to focus or retain subject matter due to noise, classmates, the lack of attention given to them, or they simply can’t keep up.
