Hello, I´m looking for a July Provision tutor for my 10-year-old son who´s been diagnosed with ADHD and high-functioning autism.

He is sociable, endearing, imaginative, artistic and very bright, but he can be immature for his age and often doesn´t ´click´ with other kids. Up until a year or so ago, his endless grandiose interests (archaeology, cosmology, etc), were studied to great depths. Now he seems to be dumbing down in an attempt to be accepted.

He doesn´t need academic tutoring as such, rather, he needs help with focusing, staying on topic, and learning how to relax and accept his own lovely self.

He does mindfulness and meditation with his resource teacher, which is great for him.

I´d love to hear from you if you´re patient, chatty, sociable, good-humoured and a creative thinker!

We live in Blackrock, Co Dublin, but he might be in Enniskerry for the first two weeks in July.

Thanks! C
