Joshua Tree Programs

Helping Children, Adolescents and Adults

The Joshua Tree Learning Centre is pleased to provide remedial learning support to students of all ages

This type of support is ideal for any student who:

  • is struggling with academic skill acquisition in reading, writing, and math. (Students do not need to have a diagnosis of any kind to benefit from this program)
  • is feeling deflated about their school performance or themselves as a learner
  • has challenges with managing homework and/or staying organized
  • has a diagnosis of a specific learning disability, ADHD, Giftedness, Autism, FASD
 

An Individual Program Plan developed for each student

This plan is holistic and collaborative. The program may incorporate information gathered from parents, teachers, counsellors as well as psycho-educational, speech and language, and occupational therapy assessments.
 
Learning support utilizes a strength-based approach to intervention and remediation with a focus on HOW your child learns. Our remedial learning programs differ from traditional tutoring programs because we get to the root of the problem and provide remediation specifically to your child’s unique learning profile. 
 

Benefits of our programs:

  • Coaching/mentoring/guidance
  • Collaboration with your child’s school
  • A nurturing relationship that focuses on your child’s strengths and interests, while also addressing specific needs
  • Motivation and encouragement
  • Strategies for learning, doing homework, and taking tests
  • Self-management skills
  • Improved communication skills
  • Self-confidence, self-esteem, self-awareness, and self-acceptance
  • Thinking, decision making, and problem-solving skills
  • A development of metacognitive thinking. Your child will learn how they learn. They will develop strategies to advocate for themselves and take responsibility for their own learning.

INDIVIDUAL REMEDIAL READING PROGRAM

Before the firs session, an individual assessment will be completed. This allows the teacher to pinpoint specific concepts and curriculum expectations with which the student is struggling. The information helps guide the teacher to effectively and efficiently help the student be more successful in reading.
 
As many as 31% of children entering kindergarten with attention deficit or hyperactivity disorders (ADHD) will have difficulty learning to read. Initial problems in reading usually do not go away without intensive intervention and individualized tutoring. By 9th grade, over 50% of students with ADHD will have developed moderate to severe reading delays or other reading problems (Shaywitz, Fletcher, & Shaywitz, 1994; 1995). Early monitoring and early support for these students is critical if they are to progress with their age peers.
This program is designed to address the needs of individuals in the areas of phonemic awareness, reading, spelling and comprehension skills based upon assessments and recommendations.

INDIVIDUAL REMEDIAL WRITTEN LANGUAGE PROGRAM

Before the first session, an individual written language assessment will be completed. This allows the teacher to pinpoint specific concepts and curriculum expectations with which the student is struggling. The information helps guide the teacher to effectively and efficiently help the student be more successful in written language.
 
Evidence-based research shows that struggling writers can improve their skills dramatically if they receive the detailed, explicit instruction they need.(Graham & Harris, 2005.) Such strategies can improve the writing skills of students with learning disabilities and are equally effective for individuals who just need extra help. Instruction is individualized and tailored to each student’s needs. Research shows that students become stronger writers through practice, so our students are given homework in between strategy sessions to reinforce their learning.
