We're almost certain you will be happy with your choice of teacher, but if the first lesson is not a success, for whatever reason, you will not be charged for the lesson and we will immediately look to find you an alternative teacher.
SEN children who are home tutored receive one-to-one attention so that their education is adapted specifically to meet their needs, pace and style of learning. When taught in the home environment children are able to relax and enjoy their learning. Good SEN teachers communicate regularly with parents so that they can better understand their child's learning style, needs and progress. Common SEN conditions that affect children include Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Asperger's Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Anxiety Disorder and Working Memory Difficulties.
Dyslexia is a common learning difficulty that can affect reading, writing and spelling. Although known as a reading disorder, dyslexia is thought to be caused by difficulties with information processing. Children with dyslexia can find it difficult to process and remember information that they hear and see, but they can be very able with problem-solving skills, and demonstrate high levels of creativity. Dyslexia can occur alongside other conditions such as dyspraxia, dyscalculia and attention deficit disorder. Dyslexia can run in families.
Dyspraxia is also known as developmental co-ordination disorder and is a common condition that can affect movement, physical coordination and fine and gross motor control. Children with dyspraxia may appear clumsy, have difficulty with tasks that include balance and coordination; and struggle with writing, drawing, typing and other educational activities. Dyspraxia can affect a child�s ability to manage their emotions and deal with social situations. It can also affect speech and articulation.
Dyscalculia is a learning disorder that affects one's ability to understand numbers, maths concepts and carry out mathematical calculations. Children suffering from dyscalculia may show high levels of anxiety during maths lessons and have difficulties learning mathematical facts. Children with dyscalculia often show difficulties that are below the expected level for their age. They may struggle to count backwards, recognise digits, and have difficulty understanding numbers and place value; and struggle to remember simple facts.
Autism, also known as Autistic Spectrum Disorder, is an umbrella of developmental conditions that affect communication, social interaction and behaviour. Autism can range from mild to very severe and children with autism see, hear and experience the world in a different way to others. Autism can affect a child's ability to socialise, make friends and interpret people's feelings. Autism can cause difficulties with listening, understanding and concentrating.
