Learning Disabilities Explained
A learning disabled child is not just someone who is having a difficult time in the classroom. Learning disabilities are neurologically based disorders that affect the brain’s ability to receive, process and retrieve information. Learning disabled children often have average to very superior intelligence and learn differently than other children. The more that a teacher knows about learning disabilities, the better he will be able to provide for a struggling child in the classroom. The more that a parent knows about learning disabilities, the better he will be able to advocate for his child.
Here is a list of some of the most prevalent learning disabilities:
- Executive Functioning
- Attention Deficit /Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD)
