Students with Executive Function Disorder have difficulty with planning, organizing, setting priorities, focusing on the task at hand, completing work, managing time and self-monitoring. These are skills and behaviors necessary for effective studying as well as for meeting goals in general. 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.
