Kumon Franchise Opportunities

Sunday, July 22, 2012 Stef dela Cruz 0 Comments

Franchising is a great way to earn from a brand that your market already trusts. Through a franchise, you get to take advantage of a trustworthy name, maintain the standards that come with it, and get your customers’ loyalty because your brand is familiar. And it isn’t only restaurants, coffee shops, or retail stores that offer franchise opportunities – even schools do! Kumon, for instance, offers franchise opportunities.

Kumon is a school known for its expertise in special education. It caters to kids with unique education needs. Children with attention deficit, learning disabilities, or autism can benefit from special programs offered by Kumon.

Learning Differences

Many people mistake attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder as something that equates to mental incapacitation. I have personally interacted with others who erroneously believe that kids with ADHD have lower IQs. Although I try my best to correct these misconceptions, not everybody believe me.

Learning in School

What’s worse, adults sometimes poke fun at kids with special needs or at the conditions these children have been diagnosed with. For instance, people can make jokes about autism when they have a friend who seems to “live in his own world”. These jokes are way too common, and although it may seem funny at first, it also pokes fun at people who have actually been diagnosed of these conditions. And it established a social stigma that tends to stick.

Learning differences may also provide a roadblock to adequate education. Dyslexia, for instance, may render a child incapable of doing basic math when in fact his IQ is superior. When the brain jumbles up the numbers “1010” and “0101”, addition becomes near impossible. But there are many ways to help a child cope with dyslexia and other learning differences.

There are schools that cater specifically to children with learning differences and developmental disorders. They specialize in educating kids with unique needs. Some even offer one-on-one classes, if that’s what it takes to teach a child effectively. Some offer art classes that help children focus and build self-esteem.

There are schools that offer academic curriculums, while others provide add-on classes that teach a child how to adapt in school or cope with lessons. Different schools have different specialties – and the right school for a child with learning differences will depend on his individual needs.

Kumon is a school you might want to think of if you have a child who is having a hard time keeping up with his lessons. Whether your kid has learning differences or not, Kumon can help your child learn more effectively.
