Beyond the primary grades, increasing curricular demands present significant challenges for children with language-based learning issues. In addition to mastering content, children must also develop effective organizational and study strategies that will better equip them to be successful learners.
At Word of Mouth, we employ a language-based tutoring approach that addresses far more than curriculum content. Language-based tutoring approaches can be applied to all core subjects, including math, science, English, and social studies. Using a variety of research-based and meta-cognitive strategies, children become experts in their individual learning styles and the tools that assist them in managing academic assignments. Frequent collaboration with teachers allows for communication of best practices and instructional approaches, thereby increasing the quality and continuity of instruction.
While individual treatment plans are generated based on a child's unique learning profile, the following skills are often highlighted throughout tutoring sessions:
- Organization, planning, and time management
- Understanding and recall of unfamiliar vocabulary
- Comprehension of auditory and written information
- Note-taking strategies
- Test preparation
- Managing research projects and other long-term assignments
- Written language
- Self-advocacy skills
