Learning Disabilities

How To Help Children & Youth Affected By Learning Difficulties/Disabilities

Children & youth with learning difficulties have difficulty learning, regardless of their intelligence. There are many different kinds of learning difficulties. Learning difficulties can affect listening, speaking, thinking, organizing, remembering, reading, spelling, writing. Without help, learning difficulties can limit a child or youth’s future. Social relations and self-esteem can also be very difficult because social cues are not noticed/learned. May be caused by and complicated by a combination of: genetic factors; physical or neurological challenges with hearing/vision; discomfort from emotional and physical traumas (falls, accidents and abuses of all kinds); exposure to environmental pollutants; nutritional imbalances; fevers; prolonged stress of any kind. Occasionally a lack of training can be mistaken for a learning difficulty. Children & youth have an even harder time when they are stigmatized and stereotyped as being damaged, not intelligent, lazy.
