Your child’s tutor and/or therapy sessions will be coordinated with his/her teacher. We attempt to work around playground time and academic instruction as these can affect your child’s attitude about coming to The Learning Center and performance in the classroom as much as possible.
If your child is absent from school, please notify the tutor/therapist as soon as possible and by the start of the school day at the very latest. Prior notice allows the tutor/therapist to use his/her time more efficiently and is greatly appreciated. This will also allow the tutor/therapist time to schedule a make-up session for your child. (See Billing, below.)
When special school activities conflict with your child’s sessions, we will make every attempt to schedule a make-up session.
When the tutor/therapist knows in advance that they will be absent, you and your child’s teacher will be notified. If the tutor/therapist is out unexpectedly, the teacher will be notified and they will be in touch with you as soon as possible.
At The Learning Center, we use a team approach to offer the best possible services for your child. Each child’s team is different but will include The Learning Center Coordinator, therapists, tutors, classroom teachers, Heads of Schools, etc. as appropriate. We will communicate with you regularly. Contact us with any questions or concerns. If you would like a conference, please let your tutor, therapist, and/or Learning Center Coordinator know. Teachers may also be part of the conference.
Your child will be provided with a folder. This folder should be brought home by your child and returned to school on his/her scheduled days. The folder will contain notes and/or activity pages for you to review and practice with your child to reinforce therapy progress. Please date and initial new pages as you see them so that we know the folder is getting home to you.
Academic Tutoring/Executive Function Coach
Each tutor will communicate to you directly using a folder with notes/work samples or through email. Please make sure to check regularly for this communication. Your tutor will explain how they will communicate with you.
Behavioral Therapy/Social Skills Groups/Counseling
Therapists will communicate primarily through email. In some instances communication will be over the phone, especially for private, confidential matters. With appropriate releases, communication will also occur with the teachers to help provide appropriate support in the classroom. Private/confidential matters can be discussed without teacher involvement. The therapist will communicate with parents and/or teachers weekly to ensure ongoing communication. Please make sure to check email regularly for this communication.
Copies of Reports:
With a signed release of information (found on this page), copies of your child’s evaluation, progress, and discharge reports will be provided to the school.
If your child is/has been evaluated for learning, developmental, psychological, neurological, or medical concerns which may be significant to his/her tutoring/therapy program, please sign a release which will allow the person or agency evaluating your child to share pertinent information with the The Learning Center tutors/therapists.
Your child may be dismissed from tutoring/therapy for any of the following reasons:
- Upon reaching age appropriate or developmentally appropriate levels.
- When progress has reached a plateau for a period of two consecutive months.
- Nonpayment of service fees.
- Upon your request.
