TUTORING HELP FOR ADHD STUDENTS
For students diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), school presents a unique set of challenges. A disorder characterized by an inability to focus and concentrate, hyperactivity, and even impulsivity, ADHD can transform the classroom into a place where students feel lost, uncomfortable, and lacking in confidence. Parents of students with ADHD will notice their child's struggles with organizing and managing his or her assignments and his or her time, as well as an overall lack of motivation.
For this reason, many parents of students with ADHD turn to tutors who have experience working with ADHD students to help combat these challenges and get their child back on track in school. With the help of Huntington Learning Center's ADHD support program, in conjunction with a customized learning program, students across the country have gained critical skills to use in school including time management, goal-setting, organization, and improved focus. Our tutoring for kids with ADHD has helped students of all ages, from kindergarten through 12th grade, excel.
Huntington's Strategies for ADHD Students
What sets Huntington Learning Center's ADHD support program apart is the comprehensive strategies that each tutor incorporates when working with students with ADHD. Our strategies include:
Skilled tutors know that tutoring for kids with ADHD must always incorporate individualized instruction and one-on-one attention. This targeted approach directly combats the student's inability to stay focused. In a classroom setting, it can be difficult to address the unique needs of each student. For students with ADHD, it can be even harder to meet their needs. Individualized instruction with a tutor, however, gives the student the immediate feedback and guidance he or she needs to grow.
Customized Learning Programs
No two students with ADHD are alike, and therefore each requires a tailored tutoring program that is structured around their specific learning style, strengths, and weaknesses. Not only does this fuel academic success, it also builds confidence in their abilities.
Breakdown of Complex Skills
Our tutors remove the stress from learning complex subjects by effectively breaking a skill or topic into smaller, more approachable pieces. For students with ADHD who often feel overwhelmed in school, this instills the motivation they need to take on new challenges.
Development of Organizational and Time Management Skills
Successful tutors for ADHD students know that for a child to perform well on homework assignments, quizzes, and tests, he or she must first understand how to properly manage his or her time and organize work. We help students improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their study habits, and subsequently increase test scores, with our ADHD support program.
Test Taking Skills
Students learn various evidence-based skills for how to best study for and take tests. These are skills many ADHD students tend to struggle with, like effective note-taking or studying to build long-term understanding.
Huntington's ADHD Tutoring Program Elements
Parents across the country trust the tutors from Huntington Learning Center to work with students with ADHD because our programs are designed for success. We ensure this by requiring all teachers to go through an extensive training process developed by a clinical psychologist recognized as an expert in the field of ADHD. By matching students with tutors who incorporate research-based strategies into their instruction, we give each student the highest chance for continued academic success.
Huntington's tutoring for kids with ADHD also keeps you as the parent highly involved in your child's progress. Our directors will schedule regular meetings to discuss goals, student achievement, and the unique plan we have in place for your child. Further, we'll meet with your student's teachers at school to gain a better understanding of the best approach to take in his or her academic development. By obtaining knowledge of how your child behaves and performs in the classroom, we are able to craft ADHD-supportive tutoring programs unmatched by any other tutoring centers.

How Do I Know if My Child Needs Help?
Most of the time it will be obvious when your child needs help. Often, you can see when they are struggling. You’ll see warning signs, such as low grades, poor test and quiz grades, struggles with finishing homework, avoiding or refusing to do homework, changes in attitude or behavior, or becoming disorganized or quiet and withdrawn.
Your child’s teacher may also notice issues and tell you that your child is a day dreamer, a class clown, or is acting out. The teacher may be concerned about your child's ability to succeed, or that important school skills are missing. The teacher may even want your child retained.
Call us today at 1-800-CAN-LEARN and we can help you determine if your child needs help and how to take the first steps toward success!
