Special Attention - Overview

Special Attention
Every one of our students is unique and deserve the opportunity to reach their potential. We work with a network of the most talented educators in New Hampshire that are passionate about the tireless work they do with those with special challenges.

Let New England Tutors become an advocate for your student’s education. We will work hand in hand with an IEP or help you get an IEP or 504 plan in place if needed. We collaborate with the school and your team of educators to ensure our program enhances and complements the school’s.

Call us and tell us your story. We can help build skills, fill in the missing gaps, or maintain over the summer months.

New England Tutors works successfully with: LD, EM, ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, Autism, EFD, and IEP/504 Plans.


 

Executive Function Disorder (EFD)

New England Tutors presents Evidence-based Executive Skills Coaching  in collaboration with Dr. Peg Dawson to  help students whose academic performance is suffering due to deficits in executive skills, including time and task management, planning, organization, impulse control, and emotional regulation. In just a few minutes a day, Academic Coaches can provide crucial support and instruction tailored to individual students’ needs. Executive Skills Coaches teach students a system for keeping track of assignments and due dates while developing the crucial executive skills needed to succeed in school and beyond. Students are guided and supported to build a daily study plan, manage their time, set short- and long-term goals, study for tests, and record their successes. They also get tools for evaluating their own executive skills in order to target their weaknesses and capitalize on strengths.By introducing the concept of “recognizing how to learn by understanding the process of learning”, Executive Skills Coaches reach far beyond other student support services.
