The owner of Y3K Tutor In Your Home has been a blessing to our family! A few years back I was having some behavioral issues with my son. Thanks to his help, the Y3K Tutor In Your Home website was a wealth of information and helped us to get through many rough patches. He is just a click away for whenever we need help.
I also have a nephew with ADHD, OCD, and other added issues. The owner is wonderful to work with especially during very intense moments. I would recommend Y3K Tutor In Your Home in a heartbeat! His wisdom, knowledge, patience, and follow up has brought much comfort to our family when we were truly feeling hopeless!
Kids with ADHD often have a lack of self-awareness. Before you are discipline them, be sure to explain what went wrong. Then teach what behavior is expected from them.
Give assistance, not advice in a crisis.

People with autism spectrum disorder tend to think inward to their own little world. Social interactions help them to see the world outside of theirs.
Many young girls and women have a subtype called predominantly inattentive ADHD. They may seem flighty or spacy but are not hyperactive. This might not raise a red flag with teachers or parents. As a result, girls often go without treatment until they reach adulthood. The use of ADHD medication among women ages 26 to 34 has risen 85% in just 5 years!
Tomorrow we will look at why girls are frequently overlooked for treatment.
Some students need time to play or relax right after school as they mentally burn out. Others students prefer get to their homework right away as they can remain focused and want to finish so they can have the rest of their evening to themselves. For this reason, Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutors are available as soon as school ends and up to 11:00 PM every day. It is important to allow students the ability to do their homework once they are mentally ready to do so as long as enough time is allotted to complete all assignments.
The written teacher evaluation and classroom observation information will help clarify the potential causes of a child’s difficulty in the classroom. In order to help a child, the teacher and the parents must consider many possible causes for the student’s difficulty. Without a careful evaluation, a child may be inappropriately labeled as a “behavior problem” or “special needs”.
