North Coast Tutoring Services is attentive and knowledgeable about our students’ specific learning differences. Because of our specialized training, North Coast Tutoring Services is an approved education service provider for both the Autism Scholarship Program and the Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship Program.

From our highly-skilled master tutors to our unique, multi-sensory reading and math curriculum, everyone at North Coast Tutoring Services takes great pride in what we offer individuals with learning disabilities. For more than 30 years, we’ve tutored students of all ages, with varying needs, including autism, dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, developmental delays and other types of learning disabilities.

Autism Scholarship Program

The Autism Scholarship Program (ASP) grants qualified applicants up to $27,000 annually for services outlined in their IEP. Parents have the choice to send their child to a special education program other than their school district, such as North Coast Tutoring Services, with this scholarship’s funding.

We work one-on-one with our students and their Individual Education Plan (IEP). Our Autism Scholarship students fall into two categories:

  • Behavioral (lower functioning or younger children)
  • Academic (students ready to take on academic subjects like math, reading, writing and much more). Our directors meet with our Academic families to develop customized curriculum.
  • By working together with an North Coast Tutoring Services affiliate, we are able to help our clients qualify for high school diplomas. The program requires enrollment fees (very reasonable) and development of a customized education plan with North Coast Tutoring Services staff.

Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship Program

The Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship Program (JPSN) provides funds for eligible K-12th grade students who have an IEP from his/her school district. North Coast Tutoring Services can help families navigate the application process and match their students with a specially trained tutor.

“I cannot say enough about how happy I am to have found North Coast Tutoring Services! My son has been receiving services from them for about four years now and we have never had anything but positive experiences. The staff at North Coast is always very helpful with anything I need and truly care about the children they serve. I highly recommend them!”
