Students diagnosed with ADD/ADHD (Attention Deficit Disorder/ Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) have difficulty maintaining their focus on goals, because they become distracted or bored easily. They tend to fidget and squirm when seated, preferring to move about. They often appear inattentive when spoken to due to distractions. They have difficulty remembering and following instructions. Educational programs that accommodate and compensate for their learning differences are required.
Lear Educational Center provides tutoring designed to meet their individual needs, including structured time strategies and techniques.
Our programs foster enthusiasm, comprehension and retention. They feature:
Multi-sensory teaching (sight, hearing, touch and movement) to encourage and maintain interest.
Visual, spoken and written explanations of concepts which assist the students to image and verbalize the reasoning of the concept.
Gradual introduction of new concepts and skills with frequent review so as to enhance recollection of prior learning and promote mastery of basics.
An emphasis on comprehension and retention so that students can effectively progress through more complex levels.
Introduction of strategies which the student can use to meet the learning challenges of today as well as the classroom challenges of tomorrow.
We use programs that are widely acclaimed for their success in teaching students with learning differences. These programs include Lindamood-Bell, Saxon, Wilson and Orton-Gillingham.
