    We had a very positive experience with Alissa as a tutor for our pod of 5th grade boys from January - June 2020. She cared a lot about the boys and worked hard to create meaningful activities for them. The pod experience was invaluable … More for all of our families during a difficult year and we were so grateful to have found this partnership! We also want to appreciate Craig for helping to match us with a tutor on very short notice after we had cycled through a few folks who were not able to see the commitment through. Thanks for sticking with us!

    Dusty was the exact person we needed to help our child finish out the school year. So grateful to him for the way he steadily encouraged her and helped her stay on track and organized. He is flexible, responsive to our needs/schedule as … More a family, and a delight to be with. We are also thankful that Craig at Themba Tutors really "gets it" and partnered us with such a wonderful tutor who was a great fit for our girl.

    My child worked with Gillian D virtually for math enrichment. She is an excellent teacher. She took time to understand my child's specific learning style and provided tools that would be engaging. She was kind and empathetic- really … More made it her goal to connect with my child and build trust and rapport. My child started the school year with confidence and without the typically "brain-drain" that occurs over the summer, thanks to Gillian.

    I am going into my second year as a Themba tutor. I have met so many great individuals while working for this company. Craig and the rest of the Themba team do such an excellent job picking and choosing Themba tutors that suit each client's … More individual needs! I look forward to meeting new tutors and clients in the 2021-2022 school year!

    Our son started in a new high school, 100% remote, and was really struggling with Latin and Physics. I found Themba Tudors online and had an initial call with Craig, who was very knowledgeable, responsive, and found 2 amazing tutors for … More us. Both the Latin and the physics tutors were fantastic, connected with my son really well and helped him go from 'failing' grade to 'honors'! I will for sure continue using (and recommending!) Themba Tutors. Thank you, C, K, and W!

    Giulia Mercuri is a great Italian tutor! She was very responsive and accessible. Giulia put a ton of effort into preparing for each session and really helped our son with test preparation and projects. We are grateful that she was able … More to help, especially since our son did not receive any live teaching during COVID. We are happy that she was referred to us!
  • Avatar Christine Gennetti ★★★★★ a year ago
    As an adult student diagnosed with a learning disability during grad school, I knew I needed help dealing with my Master's program's demanding workload. I was seriously considering dropping out when I was referred to Themba Tutors. … More I was paired up with a wonderful tutor, Julie, who was a total lifesaver. I learned many techniques that I can utilize in the future as I embark on the next phase of my career.
    I can wholeheartedly say after working with Themba for two years that I would not have finished my program without this organization. And I am so thankful I selected them.

    We were introduced to a wonderful tutor: Mcedwyn. He and our son, a freshman in college, worked well together. As a result, our son’s grades significantly improved. The tutor taught our son subject content and various methods to effectively … More study for quizzes and exams. Our son was also taught time management and organization. My son’s experience with the tutor made the first year of college a less intimidating experience.
  • Avatar Jude Eugene ★★★★★ a year ago
    We have been with our tutor, Cailin Schiller, for two years, from 5th - 7th grade. She started as an executive functioning tutor with my daughter. From the start, she demonstrated a depth of expertise and a selective use of techniques skillfully … More adapted to my daughter’s ADHD and Math disability. Cailin made Math accessible and understandable to her in a way that even her teachers had not been able to do. She differentiated reading, writing and math tasks and assignments to tailor them to my daughter’s unique learning differences. Not only did it have an effect on her grades and her work efficiency, but she finally could do her work with less anxiety. Even my daughter’s teachers used Cailin’s guidance to modify their work with her. But most importantly, she became my daughter’s favorite resource. I can’t say how invaluable Cailin has been to my daughter’s progress and well-being. I’d recommend her a million times over. She is a gem.

    Themba Tutors provided a leaning specialist that was a perfect fit for my daughter. I told them what we were looking for and they delivered. Our tutor is responsive and flexible and makes it easy for my daughter to reach out to her own … More her own, which gives her an added sense of responsibility over her learning. As a therapist myself, I now regularly recommend Themba to my patients. A much needed and well provided service to the community!!

    The tutors at Themba are fantastic! Caitlyn McNeill helped our son academically, but also with getting organized in every subject, which he so desperately needed. She offered great advice and useful strategies that helped our son become … More a more successful student. We are using Themba tutors again this year for our daughter. We're so happy to have been referred to them!

    Paul Smith at Themba has been an exceptional tutor for my son, both in terms of teaching the subject matter and teaching how best to approach the process of learning math and executing assignments. We feel very fortunate to be working with … More Paul.

    We were very lucky to have found Edwouine Swift, my son's therapist through Themba Tutors. Thomas is 12 years old, and it is extremely difficult to get him to write. Edwouine just works her magic with him, he adores her and is so … More eager to follow her guidance. I have no doubt she will be a positive driving force in his academic future.

TESTIMONIALS

A learning disorder is a neurodevelopmental condition wherein an individual demonstrates significant learning issues when compared to peers. Due to this, students have difficulty with reading, writing, math, and learning new concepts. Students with learning disorders struggle in school and at home. Learning disorders do not only include difficulties related to academic skills. These children experience social difficulties as well. Many factors lead to these learning disorders, and it varies from child to child. Some children find it difficult understanding words, while others find it difficult reading and writing text, and others have difficulty with math. 

 

Experts suggest that learning disorders refer to central nervous system impairments. Improper growth and development of the brain may lead to poor learning. Certain parts of the brain are responsible for understanding new information. Immature brain functioning can be the underlying cause of these learning issues. Chemicals communicating to one another in the brain may also not be operating efficiently.  All these neurological factors can contribute to a learning disorder.

What Causes A Learning Disorder?

A learning disorder is also known as a “learning disability.” The following are risk factors for learning disorders:

  • Family history and genetics – Often, learning problems tend to run in families. So, genetic factors play an important role in brain development.
  • Environmental factors – Studies have shown that high levels of toxins, such as lead, can increase the risk of developing a learning disorder.
  • Physical injuries – Any serious damage to the head leading to brain damage may cause central nervous system impairments, leading to learning disorders.
  • Psychological abuse – Early childhood is a critical developmental phase for learning. Trauma during this phase may result in learning disorders.
  • Risk during pregnancy – Exposure to drugs or alcohol can cause neurological damage to a baby.  Premature birth also can be a risk for newborns.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of a Learning Disorder?

Symptoms of learning disorder vary from child to child. The most common of them are:

  • Trouble in learning colors, shapes, days of the week, alphabets
  • A problem in learning basic mathematical skills
  • Inconvenience in following instructions given to them
  • Poor organizational skills
  • Struggles with reading, writing and pronouncing
  • Issues in understanding the concept of time
  • Difficulty with learning how to tie shoes, zippers, buttons, etc.
  • Trouble in making the connection between alphabets and their sounds
  • Lack of coordination while doing homework, sports, or walking
  • A problem in recognition of words

How Is a Learning Disorder Diagnosed?

Diagnosis of a learning disorder is not an easy task. Seek professional help if you see your child struggling. A professional conducts tests to diagnose the disorder, which evaluates IQ, learning, participation, language, communication, and speech. They also notice symptoms, behavioral patterns, and check the academic performance of students. Based on test results, professionals determine the need for treatment.

 

  • Psychological evaluation Children suffering from learning disorders usually have anxiety and depression. Their self-esteem and motivation level drop. These behaviors help to identify if the child is suffering from a learning disorder.

 

  • Medical testing – In this type of evaluation, medical specialists check medical history.  Sometimes, loss of coordination in the nervous system may be the cause.  Specialists conduct physical examinations to check for any abnormality.

 

  • Academic evaluation – School teachers play a role in observing reading and writing skills. They check the classroom behavior and performance of children. They assess spellings, recognition patterns, understanding of concepts, etc. 

How Are Children with a Learning Disorder Treated?

Schools, parents, and psychologists play a primary role in treatment. Language specialists also provide their services. The treatment strategies include:

  • Extra help A tutor or learning specialist helps to improve academic skills. They enhance mathematical and study skills. They devise techniques that help children in improving their reading and writing skills.

 

  • Language and speech therapy – Therapy for children who suffer from a lack of communication proves helpful.  A speech-language therapist helps in enhancing language skills.

 

  • Use of medications – Sometimes, the disorder may become severe. In this case, medication serves the purpose. Prescription for anxiety and depression management help in this case. Medicines for improvement in concentration are also available. But, medication is the last treatment option.

 

If you start noticing that your child is struggling or exhibits some of the symptoms of a learning disorder, it’s best to take a more proactive approach instead of waiting for things to improve on their own. Consult a specialist as early as possible. An early diagnosis can lessen the chances of a worst-case scenario. Encourage your child during their treatment and therapy. This will help them regain their lost confidence. Focus on their strengths and help them in improving their skills. The treatment is a slow process but essential to improve the quality of your child’s life.
