School is a major part of a child's life. When a child is in the hospital, it can interrupt the normal pattern of schooling. The hospital tutoring program addresses this concern by providing services that can provide a normal routine and encourage children to continue learning in the hospital.

The program serves inpatient children who are enrolled in kindergarten to 12th grade. Patients are eligible for hospital and homebound tutoring services if they anticipate being absent from school for 10 days or more. The 10 days of absence can be consecutive or add up to 10 days throughout the school year. Hospital tutors are certified with a teaching degree and patients receive attendance credit for each tutoring session completed. These services are free of charge to the family.

If your child is currently in the hospital and qualifies for tutoring, contact the child life specialist working with your child. Once the initial tutoring referral forms have been processed, the hospital tutor will contact the child's school to obtain a curriculum and develop an individual plan for your child.

For more information about receiving tutoring services, call 847.723.4569.
