Teaching experience and strategies for students with special needs: Seven years’ experience of teaching students with autism, dyslexia, ADHD and slow learning ability during my work as a full-time tutor for more than fifteen years. Having taught one-on-one thirteen special needs students to date. Pedagogical approaches used for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders include (1) explicit teaching (including repeated practices and structuring for generalisation and independence) with friendly communication style, (2) individualisation (using the 5-Steps Approach) with accommodation for sensory and self-regulation needs, (3) Differentiated Instruction, (4) Universal Design for Learning, and (5) Self-directed Approach. Strategies adopted for students with dyslexia include (1) using visual and audio-recording supports with listening task and instruction, (2) teaching sound discrimination, phonics and decoding strategies, (3) providing lots of encouragement and patience during speaking, reading and writing tasks, (3) discussing vocabulary and providing motivating materials before reading task, (4) stimulating the sensory pathways (eyes, ears, hands and lips) and vocalising during spelling and writing tasks, (5) teaching irregular words on a whole word basis during writing task, and (6) teaching mind mapping technique and breaking up process into small, manageable steps during writing task. Flexible learning layout and friendly, conducive tuition environment at tutor's classroom.     Lessons to be held at office at Ang Mo Kio
