Help your teenage student with our high school homework tutoring tips.
Secondary school teachers will provide increasing amounts of homework as your child gets older. There is a good reason for this increase in workload. Getting a good education can help you build a better life. However, for a child with a learning difficulty or disability, this can result in unnecessary stress and pressure. Studying for exams and completing class assignments on time is a challenge your child can overcome.
Our specialist learning difficulties centre offers tutoring services and specialist teacher advice to children and teenagers with learning disabilities and cognitive deficits.
Our tutors are specialist teachers and are accredited with the Western Australian College of Teachers (WACOT).
Our friendly tutoring team have developed these helpful homework tips for parents tutoring children with learning deficits such as ADHD, Dyslexia and Autism.
Overcoming academic senior school homework challenges related to Dyslexia.
Overcoming obstacles caused by dyslexia is crucial to improving both academic achievement and wellbeing in Dyslexic students. Challenging academic instructions can often be a major factor in academic underachievement in high school students with a learning difficulty. Teachers and Tutors can improve their ability to help dyslexic class members by:
- Always checking that a teaching or tutoring instruction is understood.
- Speaking clearly and presenting the instruction in a written, oral and visual format.
- Consistently identifying and tackling academic weaknesses experienced by Dyslexic students in class.
- Talking to the child’s parents or caregiver regularly. Often Mums and Dads will know helpful tips.
Discussing your child’s learning difficulty with their secondary college teachers.
Talking to your child’s secondary school principal or classroom teachers about their specific learning disorder or difficulty is important. Communicating openly and discussing the results of educational assessments from an educational psychologist can be an important first step in helping your son or daughter.
Develop a learning difficulty plan for your child or teenager’s secondary education.
Children or adolescents with Dyslexia, Autism or ADHD benefit from a plan. This learning difficulty plan can be for part or all of their secondary education. The education planning must be simple, easy to read and achievable.
Thinking carefully about your child’s learning deficit over a number of years rather than just one term or semester will result in the best possible outcome. Collaborative decision-making by teachers, parents and health professionals where “everybody wins” will unite stakeholders and help focus on the common goal, your child’s future.
