Tutors for Special Needs Students

Tutoring students of all ages with special challenges.

Tutors for disabilities boca raton FLIt has been said that everyone learns in a unique way.  Thankfully, learning disabilities do not carry the stigma they once had, and more and more students are getting tested.  Truthfully, they should be called learning differences not learning disabilities, because we find that many students diagnosed with special needs can do just as well—if not better—with the right training and desire!

Nearly one in five students have some type of special needs.  In fact, some of the most successful people in the world have had learning disabilities, including Richard Branson, Agatha Christie, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein and Thomas Jefferson, just to name a few.  I think we can all agree they did just fine, and with the right training and techniques so can your student!

At Academic Advantage, we incorporate special techniques, patient and experienced instructors and a positive and encouraging atmosphere to help students with special needs achieve optimal results!  We also have connections with doctors who do testing and can help provide a diagnosis for an IEP—Individualized Education Plan at school—or for extended-time testing on standardized tests.

These are just a few of the special needs that we work with:

  • ADD/ADHD
  • Anxiety
  • Asperger’s Syndrome
  • Autism
  • Dyscalculia
  • Dysgraphia
  • Dyslexia
  • Dyspraxia
  • Hearing Impairment
  • Processing Issues
  • Visual Impairment
  • And More...

"We have been working with Academic Advantage and Adam for several months.  Our daughter has Aspergers, OCD and ADD. One of Adam's many qualifications is that he has a keen sense of knowing just when to "push" our daughter to get more out of her and when to "back off" still keeping our daughter on task, making the best use of their time together. This is not an easy task. Adam brings in a nice mix of academics and real world knowledge that has been a great source of support for our daughter and our family. I do not hesitate to recommend him for general or special education students."
