ADHD is by far and away one of the most misunderstood learning disabilities in Ontario classrooms, despite the fact that it affects 5-12% of the school population. Teachers will frequently describe unruly or difficult students as ‘ADD’ or ‘ADHD’ without appreciation for what it truly means to be diagnosed with this neurobiological condition. At Full Education, we recognize that ADHD students are not bad or lazy students: they are students with an executive functioning disability, and as such, must be taught differently to accommodate for their unique brains.
Full Education’s ADHD tutoring programs are taught by Ontario-Certified Teachers with additional learning in ADHD. All ADHD tutoring programs begin with a custom program plan from the Education Director, Michelle Fullerton, where she reviews the student’s assessments, interviews the student (if possible) and parents, and designs a custom approach for that individual. Tutors will review content, assist with homework, test and assignment preparation by providing strategies to overcome working memory and executive function challenges (such as starting tasks, managing time, and organization and self-regulation). Full Education’s ADHD Tutoring is specifically designed to empower students to not only understand how they learn, but to provide them with the additional support they need to process classroom content.
