Providing personalised multisensory tutoring online for those with learning disorders or difficulties.
Tailored Multisensory Educational Support For Adults And Children Online
As an educational therapy and remedial teaching service, our passionate and experienced team at Neurosensory provides high-quality support to people with a variety of learning disorders or difficulties. Online tutoring is one delivery option we offer to facilitate assistance in a location of your choice, which may suit your personal preferences better than in-person delivery. We implement online tutoring for students with ADHD, autism, dyslexia, dyscalculia, and dysgraphia.
A significant goal of the Neurosensory team is to provide therapy and support that is personalised to the unique needs of each of our students. Using evidence-based methods, we carry out assessments and create a development plan that aims to reduce learning and developmental challenges. By employing a language-based, multisensory, structural, sequential, cumulative, and cognitive approach, we will work with you or your loved one towards target outcomes.
If you are looking for an educational tool that may be helpful for someone with a learning disorder or difficulty that is affecting their ability to read, write, do maths, or partake in general education or day-to-day activities, the multisensory approach that we engage in may be of interest and benefit.
Combining Online Tutoring With The Orton Gillingham Multisensory Approach
We utilise a teaching method known as the Orton Gillingham multisensory approach at Neurosensory, which is recognised by international bodies such as UNESCO as the preferred treatment for learning disorders and difficulties.
This style of education support differs from techniques typically used in schools. This is because it has an action-oriented focus that incorporates the following sensory factors to work towards creating new neural pathways:
- Visual (seeing).
- Auditory (hearing).
- Kinaesthetic (movement and touch).
Our online tutoring sessions involve consistent interaction between the student and teacher in an engaging, fun, and family-friendly setting. There is a diagnostic component as the teacher will assess student responses to determine and analyse learning difficulties and progress.
Following a range of individualised instructions, students use a variety of senses simultaneously with the goal of enhancing information retention and retrieval. This may include a combination of actions such as reading, writing, listening, speaking, or moving at the same time. This teaching style may have positive outcomes for many people with learning disorders or difficulties due to its different approach to focus, attention, assessment, and prescription.
Benefits of Multisensory Tutoring Online
Teaching that incorporates visual, auditory, and kinaesthetic learning techniques for people with a range of learning disorders and difficulties is increasingly popular. This approach encourages the brain to change with the aim of improving or overcoming some learning and developmental issues.
Potential advantages of online tutoring may include the following:
- Choice of setting.
- Personal control over surrounding stimulation.
- Ability to accommodate time commitments.
- Easier transport access to the service.
These factors may be beneficial for people with learning disorders or difficulties, which is why we are happy to offer online tutoring to our students.
Who May Benefit From Multisensory Tutoring Online?
Despite similarities and overlapping needs in certain disorders and conditions, all students have unique requirements and goals. This is why our team tailors all tutoring sessions to the individual, whether the lessons are conducted one-on-one or in a group. This allows us to target specific needs based on a wide variety of contributing and coinciding factors. Adults and children living with the following disorders, conditions, or difficulties may benefit from undertaking our online tutoring:
This collective term covers a variety of concerns such as reduced impulse control, overactivity, and inattention.
Autistic people often have communication issues, which may lead to difficulties in social and learning situations. Sensitivity to environmental factors such as noise may also be present, as may dependency on routines and intense focus on certain items or tasks. ASD symptoms are viewed on a continuum.
As a language-based, phonological processing disorder that may influence the interpretation of speech sounds, dyslexia may affect areas such as spelling, reading, or maths.
The main feature of dyscalculia is having trouble developing basic number concepts. Due to varying diagnostic definitions and comorbidities, some people may struggle to get a diagnosis for an extended period.
Dysgraphia involves a decreased ability to develop fluent and legible handwriting. Typing ability may also be affected.
Other circumstances in which the Orton Gillingham multisensory approach used in our online tutoring sessions may help include:
- Dyspraxia/sensory integration disorder, which affects fine motor skills and may impact tasks such as motor sequencing, planning, balance, or writing.
- Auditory processing disorder (APD), which results in difficulty recalling auditory information and telling the difference between sounds. It often overlaps with dyslexia.
- Visual processing disorder (VPD), which may cause issues with tasks such as concentrating on small text and comprehending maps.
- Generalised learning disorders.
- Difficulties with maths.
- Reading difficulties without a learning disorder (reading remediation).
- Comorbidities that may make learning more difficult such as hearing or speech impairments.
- Learning English as a second language (ESL).
