I have a Masters degree focused on Students With Disabilities 1-6 and NYS certifications in SWD birth through 6th grade. I have tutored students with Autism and ADHD as well as parent training. Students with theses specific needs need motivational systems, modifications, such as visuals or adapted learning techniques. They work very well with routines, check lists, and a organized and distraction free work environment.
