A learning disability is the inability of a person to learn the normal way due to unexplained factors affecting the way the brain functions as to processing and accepting information. Some of the learning disabilities of a person include writing, speaking, answering mathematical questions, reasoning, and reading. These people do not have an intelligence problem or a disease which other people call it but they are individuals who only have a slow thought process. Parents should not be ashamed of their children having this problem because there are solutions or ways to help them. We should understand what these individuals are going through especially with children because most of the time they become outsiders in their own society.
Learning disability is very common from ages 6 through 21 and most of them are enrolled in special education schools. Children with learning disabilities often do not show any easily detectable signs; however, medical experts and SPED teachers can easily observe on how a child responds to lessons in school. Children with learning disabilities usually have problems with alphabets, troubles when spelling words, struggles when expressing ideas, troubles in following directions, and may also have problems in pronouncing words or rhyming them. But the child should be evaluated further to make sure if the child really has a learning disability. If currently the child is enrolled in a pre school, he or she can be transferred to a school that provides special education services to young minds.
Help your child cope up with his or her learning disability and you will find that your child will work hard to learn because they are guided by skilled professionals. Parents should be more patient and should give more attention to their kids because children with learning disabilities get their confidence from the people who understand their situation and who are helping them. Find out if the child easily learns through listening or reading. Let them help in daily household chores so that they can build confidence since you trust them by giving chores. Remember to make your instructions as simple as possible for them to easily understand. And most importantly, never make them feel alone in this problem by making them feel loved and by helping them build their confidence and self esteem.
