Let’s talk about specific learning disabilities…
THE REALITY – Children with a learning disability speak well and are smart and intelligent. However, they have academic difficulties which in turn cause emotional and behavioural problems
OBSERVATION – This leaves parents and teachers confused. The child’s behaviour is misinterpreted as a lack of motivation or interest
THE EFFECT ON THE CHILD – The child is left feeling misunderstood and frustrated
UNDERSTANDING THE PROBLEM – These children have trouble in –
- Processing information from visual and sensory perception
- The organisation of information to process the ability to read, write or do mathematics.
Learn about Specific Learning Disabilities, and their types to arrive at an effective management plan for your child.
NOTE: As you check for signs and symptoms of learning disabilities in your child, please understand that these signs may vary from child to child. Every child is unique. No child will definitively exhibit all the symptoms. However, you can aim to check if multiple signs described in the presentation above fit the characteristics exhibited by your child, in the event that a case for a learning disability may be suspected and assessed accordingly.
