The ASP Tutor addresses those students who have been identified and may be receiving accommodations for disabilities. The ASP Tutor also works with students who are experiencing difficulty with traditional classroom instruction and may need more specialized tutoring or one-on-one instruction. Time management, study skills, and organization are also addressed. The student may need help to better communicate with teachers, discuss improvement strategies with parents and therapists, and collaborate with the School Psychologist.
The School Psychologist provides a wide variety of services to the Hopkins community, including short-term counseling and therapy to students and staff, consulting with parents and teachers about concerns they have for specific children, and conducting psycho-educational examinations.
Accommodations for LD/ADD generally include extended time on quizzes and tests, the use of word-processing for in-class writing assignments, or enlarged text and diagrams. These modifications are made in compliance with state and federal regulations that require such measures be taken to reduce the impact of such disabilities. Each semester of the school year, the School Psychologist and the Diretor of the Academic Support Program notify the Head Adviser and teachers of students who qualify for these special accommodations.
The Peer Tutoring Program is a student-run organization made up of volunteers who tutor other students in grades 7 through 12 in a specific subject. Students are matched up by free periods and by subject need, and the commitment of both the student and peer tutor is essential. Sessions usually take place once a week.
