Special Needs

ADHD,

ADHD

Regarding my educational background, I have taken several courses in special education, including research and understanding about ADD/ADHD and how to successfully teach students with this problem (providing small tasks/"chunks", arranging desks away from high traffic areas and away from doors and windows where distractions are greatest). I have also been a full-time teacher and tutor for students who have this diagnosis and have experience in logging their times and behavior as it relates to the diagnosis.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD),

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have tutored a student with Autism since 2010. My work with this student centers on patience, breaking up the work into pieces/chunks and visual/picture representation of ideas so that he can have success and understand what he has accomplished. Recently, I took and passed an exam for severely disabled students, allowing me to teach in schools where Autism is prevalent. I currently work at a school for developmentally disabled students and will teach special education here this summer.

Reading and comprehension

Donny worked with my 7 year old grandson on reading and comprehension. He shared tips with what to do at home. He was patient and by the end of the lesson my grandson was comfortable with him and eager to do more. That is half the battle!
