Drop-In Skills Tutoring
Lunchbox Tutors will be offering drop-in, skills based tutoring services. These sessions are based on specific skills students need to progress in school.
Reading skills-based sessions will be focused on either phonics/fluency or comprehension. Students will work on the skill for a 45-minute time period. Skills classes are $20. Please see below for information about dates and times. More skills-based classes will be added, so check back frequently! These sessions are perfect for refreshers as we return to school, or for more practice without a regularly scheduled tutoring session.

MTSS / RTI Process
Have you been told your child didn’t make progress and will be moved into Tier 3?
Were you invited to a Child Study Team (CST) Meeting to discuss a potential psychoeducational evaluation?
Do you feel your child is struggling more than he or she should be even though he or she is receiving Tier 3 interventions?
If so, this workshop is for you! We will focus on the process students go through when they are not meeting grade level expectations and are placed in MTSS. We will also discuss what happens when the CST determines an educational evaluation is necessary.
Length: 45 minutes
Audience: Parents or teachers who need more knowledge about the MTSS, CST and IEP process
Format: Online live meeting
Date and Time: August 1st, 6:30 PM EST

Social Skills Group, Tampa Bay
Citrus Park Mall
We will host a social skills group to focus on friendships with other neurodiverse and typical students from grades 4-7. Additionally, we will work on money skills, ordering skills, and manners. The event will take place at the Citrus Park Mall on Thursday, June 23rd from 2-5. Students will meet in a centralized location, make use of the library space for sharing social stories and holding conversations, and order a snack from the food court to practice money skills, ordering, and independent skills.
This group will be limited to six participants. Caregivers may remain with their child for no fee, or they may drop off their child if the child is able to communicate bathroom needs and there is no fear of elopement.
