Direct Instruction Tutoring programs place particular emphasis on teaching thinking skills, and helping students acquire background knowledge. Program materials include fully scripted lessons to guide our teachers through carefully constructed instructional steps - modeling new content, providing guided practice, offering individualized practice, and applying skills. Signals, and responses are used to keep ADHD students involved, help them stay on task, and support lesson pacing. All of our tutor's are teachers, and are trained to assess student performance throughout the program, and struggling students receive extra practice through remedial exercises. Each level of the program typically spans one academic year. A commitment to a minimum of one-two years is recommended. For true mastery, and assimilation of our Di interventions, that last, time is needed. During the course of a year, a minimum of two 60-minute lessons per week are required. Accelerated programing by adding additional days each week can be arranged.

All family members need to work together with the therapist toward common goals. However, if one member refuses to attend a session(s), other family members can still benefit from attending. Each family member can also benefit from coming in for a few individual sessions before, during, after scheduled family time.
