Tutoring for Children with Learning Disabilities

Beaumont's Center for Human Development provides a multi-disciplinary approach to the tutoring of children with learning disabilities. In existence for 35 years, the learning disabilities tutoring program is designed to address the specific needs of individuals with concerns such as learning and attention disorders, organizational difficulties or anything else that might affect a person's ability to learn in traditional ways.

Instruction is provided by experienced, caring, well-trained professionals who strive to create a supportive, success-oriented learning experience for each student. Using an individualized, multi-disciplinary approach to learning, our tutors assist each student in the identification of personal learning styles. Our tutors then introduce effective academic and performance strategies designed to strengthen or by-pass learning weaknesses and to maximize a student's academic potential and performance.

To ensure a positive, therapeutic learning experience, each student is assigned his or her own tutor who provides personalized private instruction.

The academic tutoring program features:

  • supportive, success oriented environment
  • tutorial and remedial services for all ages
  • tutoring provided by certified teachers
  • individualized, multi-sensory approach
  • individual instruction

Instruction is available in:

  • reading and phonics
  • math
  • written expression
  • reading comprehension strategies
  • vocabulary development
  • test-taking strategies
  • study and organizational skills

Instruction takes place in 45 minute sessions either once or twice each week.
