Autism

“The Chicago Home Tutor has done an amazing job teaching math to our 9 year-old son with autism. Our tutor is patient and thorough. I highly recommend them!”  –Marlene W, September 2015

Here at the Chicago Home Tutor we are very well-equipped to tutor your student with autism. We provide our expert tutoring services in the convenience of your home (see where we go). Our tutors are school psychologists and special educators who have been trained specifically in attuning to and helping individual students with diverse needs. We have years of experience teaching children with autism individually and in our classrooms.

Alongside our scientifically-supported teaching practices, we will use social-emotional and behavioral supports to build on your child’s strengths and help remove his or her barriers to success. There are many interventions that research studies show often help students with autism such as Picture Exchange Communication Systems (PECS), visual schedules, independent work systems, visually-supported teaching materials, social skills interventions, social stories, motivational rewards systems, and much more. We design and select the strategies based on the strengths and areas of need of your child. Finally, we can work with your child to improve executive functioning skills with the Unstuck and On-Target curriculum which is specifically designed for students with autism to help increase flexibility and goal-directed behavior.

We specialize in coordinating with other professionals. At your request, we communicate with occupational therapists, teachers, doctors, speech-language therapists, and social workers to promote generalization of your child’s goals across settings. We are ready to give your child the absolute best academic support available!

What Parents Say:

The Chicago Home Tutor has had a transformative effect on our son's reading and writing ability over a really short period of time. Our tutor is fun, approachable and our son loves her classes. He learns by playing and he is proud to show us his progress. She details improvements and compares our child to the average at his age. It's invaluable to know where he stands and how he's doing great. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Chicago Home Tutor to every parent seeking for a top class tutor.

The Chicago Tutor was a wonderful gift during a challenging time for my daughter. The whole process worked marvelously smoothly. Ryan was terrific - he kept my daughter motivated and feeling secure. He was also responsive to changes when they became necessary. And he could teach the material well. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

Our tutor is an excellent and engaging tutor. She works with my 7 year old daughter on math concepts and is very effective. My daughter actually looks forward to working with her. She is very conscientious and professional; she is always prepared with materials and has multiple ways of approaching the subject. I would highly recommend the Chicago Home Tutor to anyone in need of a tutor.

I am so happy with the Chicago Home Tutor. You can tell our tutor, Laura, has prepared every class meticulously and knows perfectly what each student needs. My son has improved a lot with her help, and he smiles every time I tell him that he will be seeing Ms. R.
