My son has ADHD, Anxiety, Dyslexia AND a learning disability. He's always attended private schools for learning disabled children, but when we had to move, public school and an IEP were the only option. I called VT in desperation because he was failing across the board and was so distressed. I know he just needed the right environment in order to thrive. After a couple tearful sessions with the VERY PATIENT tutor, my son began to "get it". Once he did, there was no stopping him!

Boston Special Education Tutoring FAQ

Varsity Tutors knows it can be a struggle for parents as they try to help their children who have special education needs, so we're happy to be able to set you up with Boston special education tutoring. We're standing by to get you connected with a private instructor who has the experience and skills to meet your child's specific learning needs. It can be challenging to locate a tutor who knows how to work well with students who have learning differences like dysgraphia, dyslexia, or autism. Working with a qualified instructor can help your child enjoy their learning experience more.

What skills can a Boston special education tutor near me work on with my child?

If your student has autism and they easily get upset when a routine is changed or they're struggling with social skills, their specialist can use visual clues or some type of signal to indicate it's time to transition from one thing to another. Different methods can work with different students, so your student's private instructor can take the time to practice using different ways to cue a change in activity until they discover what works best specifically for your student. They can then inform you, your family, and the child's classroom teachers so you can all utilize this signal to help your student stay calm during the transition time from one activity to another.

Another example of skills that can help is with a child who has dysgraphia, which specifically affects their ability to form letters or space them correctly, make letters the correct size, or control a pencil or other writing utensil. There are technological solutions to this, such as dictation software, and your student's instructor could teach your child to use a program that helps them. They can help them practice pinching tweezers, joined chopsticks, and other implements like ice tongs. This can help them strengthen their muscles and train them to properly hold a pencil or pen.

There are many specific learning disabilities including dyscalculia and other processing or executive function difficulties. Boston special education tutoring can provide general skills like listening, reading, writing, and speaking in a way that targets your child's learning disabilities and uses their learning strengths.

One thing many students with learning disabilities can benefit from is previewing the subjects that are coming up in their classroom. They can get familiar with the information with their Boston special education tutor and feel more comfortable when learning about it again in the classroom with their peers. They'll have asked any questions they may have and learned gained foundational knowledge about the subject, which can help them keep up with the rest of the class. This is another way to boost their self-confidence.

Special education tutors know how to connect with students who have various learning disabilities. There are challenges your student faces that an expert special ed instructor can meet with empathy and understanding. They can use the kinds of techniques that work with your student to provide extra repetition and direct, structured teaching methods that mesh with your student's preferred learning style.
