Have you ever wondered if you should get tutoring for your child that is on an IEP or 504 Plan?  How do you find a tutor?  How do you know if they’re a good fit?  What kinds of tutoring models are out there?  We’ll answer all of your tutoring question in today’s episode… yes, even that one.  My guest, Kelsey Frobeen, and I will even talk about the risk that tutoring will take some responsibility off of the school.  


Kelsey Frobeen is the Program Manager of Learning Aid Ohio. She manages this statewide program which aims to provide in-person, supplemental learning support for students with IEPs or a 504 plan.
