Be Able Difference

Be Able to Read & Write


We identify each learner's challenges - decoding, spelling, fluency, or comprehension. Based on their areas of need, we determine the specific tools/curriculum they require to advance.


We support writing advancement whether they need help at the sentence, paragraph, or essay level. We integrate the appropriate tools, strategies and technology on an individual basis.


While some learners may need extra support, others need to be further challenged. Be Able provides writing and reading enrichment to push learners to their full potential.

Reading & Writing
Computation & Problem Solving

Be Able to Compute & Problem Solve


 We provide individualized supports and tools to be used both in and out of the classroom for those learners who struggle with number sense (math facts, basic operations, number visualization, subitizing, etc.)

Problem Solving

Many learners are challenged by word problems and multi-step processes. Be Able provides scaffolding and strategies to break these down and make them  more accessible.


Some learners may need to be further challenged in the area of mathematics. We also provide this push in order for students to continue to advance.

Executive Functioning

Executive Functioning

Be Able helps learners understand how to manage their time, materials, and how to strengthen study skills while managing their emotions.


Be Able helps learners understand how to organize their materials and why this is essential for success. Simultaneously, working in the home allows us to show learners how to mange their work spaces.

Time Management

Be Able teaches learners how to manage their time by creating study schedules and assignment deadlines. We do this through the support of both concrete tools
(e.g., planners) and digital supports (e.g., Google Calendar).

Study Skills

Be Able demonstrates how to identify important information in larger texts, create study materials, and how to study from these materials and notes in order to be successful in academic and occupational testing.
