This is one of my top subjects! Special Education is one of my top subjects!As a team of school psychologists and specialized teachers working together, we have the skills to help every student reach his or her potential. Our tutors have a variety of areas of expertise and we consult one another to find creative, effective solutions for all of our students. We begin with a thorough assessment to uncover your student’s precise needs and skill deficits. We then design targeted lessons, constantly monitoring progress to maximize effectiveness and, when needed, alter our approach based on your student’s responsiveness to our lessons. Our graduate training in psychology has prepared us to work with diverse student populations including students with ADHD, executive functioning difficulties, autism, and emotional challenges. Some of our tutors are also certified to teach English as a Second Language (ESL). EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONING encompasses many skills which are essential to thrive in school and beyond. Many students who struggle with working memory, sustained attention, planning/prioritization, organization, time management, flexibility, and goal-directed persistence could benefit from intervention or coaching in executive functioning. Our school psychologist tutors are skilled in implementing interventions to help improve your child’s executive functioning. Interventions include the use of time management tools (i.e. planners, alarms and checklists), memory strategies (mnemonic devices, automaticity and cognitive training) and social skills strategies for practicing flexibility and theory of mind (taking the perspectives of others). We also use the Homework, Organization, and Planning Skills (HOPS) Intervention which research has shown helps middle school students with executive functioning skills. Additionally, we structure every tutoring session with your child’s executive functioning needs in mind, so that they can gain the maximum benefit from our teaching. For students with autism, we use the Unstuck and On Target curriculum which is supported by research to improve flexibility. AUTISM- Here at the Chicago Home Tutor we are very well-equipped to tutor your student with autism. We provide our expert tutoring services in the convenience of your home- in the city of Chicago and surrounding suburbs. Our tutors are school psychologists and special educators who have been trained specifically in attuning to and helping individual students with diverse needs. We have years of experience teaching children with autism – individually and in our classrooms. Alongside our scientifically-supported teaching practices, we will use social-emotional and behavioral supports to build on your child’s strengths and help remove his or her barriers to success. There are many interventions that research studies show often help students with autism such as Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), visual schedules, independent work systems, visually-supported teaching materials, social skills interventions, social stories, motivational rewards systems, and much more. We design and select the strategies based on the strengths and areas of need of your child. Finally, we can work with your child to improve executive functioning skills with the Unstuck and On-Target curriculum which is specifically designed for students with autism to help increase flexibility and goal-directed behavior. We specialize in coordinating with other professionals. At your request, we communicate with occupational therapists, teachers, doctors, speech-language therapists, and social workers to promote generalization of your child’s goals across settings. We are ready to give your child the absolute best academic support available!
