Help your children flourish in and out of school!
Tutoring for autistic or special needs children can help them expand their possibilities. People who have these conditions often struggle because they lack the ‘tools’ to help them succeed. While society has made much progress giving them a helping hand, much of the world still has difficulty accommodating their needs. That’s why it can be a good idea to hire a special education and autism tutor in the Okanagan.
Get better grades by learning to be independent with a specialized tutor
Our special education and autism tutors in the Okanagan help children deal with learning challenges. Our tutors help autistic students adjust to life in and out of the classroom. From social skills training to cognitive behavioural techniques for autism, our tutors are armed with knowledge that helps your child get along with others and perform tasks independently. The end result? Better grades and better life skills.
When is a special education and autism tutor necessary for your kids?
A professional in-home special education and autism tutor is useful for anyone who has a learning challenge. That’s because our teachers can act as navigators for your children. Every child will have unique problems when dealing with different issues like attention deficit disorder, autism or any other learning challenge. Our tutors personalize the way they instruct each child by developing a lasting relationship with each student. That allows teachers to adapt their teaching methods and tackle their challenges head-on!
Worried about financial problems? Funding from the government can make our services even easier to get. The Ministry of Children and Family Development says kids aged six to 18 with autism funds can apply that money to out-of-school tutoring.

What makes a good special education and autism tutor?
Our teachers focus on turning what might be perceived as a weakness into a strength. That’s the advantage of hiring an experienced special ed or autism tutor in the Okanagan. Many children who have so-called ‘disabilities’ may not be given a chance to shine in their element.
For example, in one of the most viewed TED talks in history, Sir Ken Robinson tells the story of Gillian Lynne. She is a world-famous choreographer who crafted dance sequences to musicals such as Cats. As a child, teachers believed she had a learning disorder because she couldn’t sit still in class. But one insightful doctor told her mother that she was a born dancer and urged her parents to put her in dance school. She is now a multimillionaire. But just imagine if the doctor didn’t observe her carefully and wrote her off as ‘disabled.’
Personalized one-on-one attention can help kids reach their potential. Our special education and autism tutors in the Okanagan observe your child and turn what others see as weaknesses into strengths!
And you don’t have to worry about gaps between what your children learn at home and at school. We seamlessly integrate our lessons with what your kids experience in the classroom by building upon their Individualized Education Plans (IEPs).
Kids who have autism are given an IEP, a school document that tracks specific needs and goals they have. This document helps us make an even more personalized experience for your children. We’d encourage parents to also give their tutors as much details as they can so we can make our lessons better!
