Many families find out in their children’s formative years that some form of disability exists with the student that is causing delays in the child from keeping up with their peers. This is a very common diagnosis in our public school system and no one should let it cause them anxiety. Sometimes the student might need a different instructional approach that suits their style of learning, many times a few educational interventions can assist the student in catching up. Tutoring offers a very independent approach at helping to not only identify what teaching style a student responds effectively, but tutoring also allows for feedback to parents, teachers, counselors and therapists in real time.
What do you need to know as a parent? First, every student has the right to a free public education. Each student has a right to be afforded the interventions that are outlined in the student Educational Plan such as Individualized Education Plan (IEP), a 504 Plan or one of many others. These plans have some governing laws that support them such as the Federal Educational Right to Privacy Act (FERPA) which safeguards a student’s privacy or the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) which provides children with disabilities the same opportunity for education as those students who do not have a disability.
