I'm glad you found me. Before I commit to a family and a learner I like to meet and see if we have a bond. I think its important for everyone to feel comfortable, since learning can be challenging. The idea of obtaining a tutor for some kids, often can be a drag. My aim is to have the learner feel comfortable enough to want me to come and help them learn. Each learner has strengths and weaknesses. It's important for the tutor to utilize the strength to facilitate the weakness.
I use motivational systems to promote success. It's all about baby steps to the ultimate end goal. Short goals are set along the way to provide immediate reward to the learner; offering a sense of confidence and hey ," I can do it". With parent involvement combined with the student and tutor we will all make sure we are on the same page to provide maximum growth in all environments.
Ultimately it is important to get the learner involved, find out what there preferences are and use those items to motivate them to learn the skill(s).
Being a parent of two, I understand being the only the advocate for your child. I have worked with learners with special needs for the past ten years in school settings and home environments.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
I have been working with learners on the spectrum for the past ten years in a school for autism as a speech and language specialist. My primary focus is utilizing the basic principles of behavioral analysis and combining them with speech and language based activities. I have been providing aba therapy direct instruction in the home for the past 6 years to ages 18 months through the adult level. Implementing social skills, language based, imitation, behavior plans and other areas has been part of programming and planning for a successful outcome for the learner.
I have been working with kids preschool up through 8 th grade for the past 4 years both as in-classroom support and home support. I focus on organization, study skills, and time management to help the learner become responsible for there own homework and projects. I help the student with the topic and modify it to there learning style for success. For example, handwriting. First go over the rules and then take your time and follow the rules in regards to how you are sitting and holding your paper and pencil. Each subject has a different approach as each student has a different learning style.
I have been working with students with a hearing loss or possess some type of hearing impairment for the past ten years. I have implemented communication systems so the learner can communicate and learn to request there own wants and needs. I attended Galluadet University to obtain an ASL certification. I integrate picture symbols, such as PECS and ASL to promote visual communication or total communication. While some parents, prefer speech and language therapy ... I am also able to provide therapy in that area.
I am a language based therapist that has been teaching phonics to young learners for several years. Because most of my learners are not typical learners I use a multi sensory approach ... phonics is the the foundation for elementary reading, math, and writing skills. It is important for each student to use there auditory senses, there tactile, and other senses when differentiating different sounds and rhythms to determine the likeness and difference among the words. It is important to teach new and early readers to search for the visual and auditory patterns when decoding and encoding phonemic patterns.
I have been working with learners with special needs for the past ten years in a school, home and community setting. From learning to social play, toilet training, transitions, to pre-vocational and academic work environments, I use a multi sensory approach depending on the type of learner and what the disability of the learner is.
