Special Needs Support

We offer tailored assessments and tutoring to help students with special needs realise their full potential

Special Needs tuition

TutorsPlus specials needs tutors work with students of all ages and provide after-school or in-school support, as well as home schooling if required. We understand differences in learning preferences and take the time to assess unique needs, designing a personal study programme (or Individual Education Plan) for each student.

All of our special needs tutors possess professional qualifications in their field and have classroom experience working with students with mild to severe difficulties. We work with students with the following learning differences:

  • ADD / ADHD
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Asperger syndrome
  • Dyslexia and other literacy difficulties
  • Dyscalculia and other numeracy difficulties
  • Dyspraxia
  • Dysphasia
  • Other health impairments

Our tutors do not utilise just one single method to teach but have the experience to use varied approaches to best suit individual students.

One to one special needs tuition is CHF 135.- per hour.

Special Needs assessment

Where required, TutorsPlus can organise a comprehensive assessment including both formal and informal tests which are administered to determine a student’s ability and level of academic achievement.

Test results are presented and analysed in a comprehensive written report. Extensive recommendations are given as to how parents, class teacher and specialist teacher (if appropriate) can best support the child.

The assessment and report are carried out by accredited specialists and are accepted by both the IB Examining Board and the IGCSE and A-Level Boards in the case of students requiring examination concessions.

Assessment update

This review is appropriate for students who have previously been assessed by an Educational Psychologist or Specialist Assessor, and for whom specific learning difficulties have already been diagnosed. The primary aim of this review is to test current skill levels (e.g. reading and spelling) in order to provide up-to-date information to the school/course.

The assessment fees will be agreed in accordance with the specialist and the extent of the services provided.
