Children with a learning disability have difficulty understanding, remembering and responding to new information. If a learning disability is not treated diligently it can affect self-esteem and self confidence with long-term effects. Most of the learning disorders cannot be cured and children with learning disabilities usually need special education, but your encouragement can play a huge role in helping.

  • Focus on your child’s strengths, interests and abilities, and help them to use their abilities to overcome their limitations.
  • Praise and reward them for accomplishments. Make them feel loved and secure as they need ample reassurance to boost their confidence.
  • Correct their mistakes with patience. Show them how to do a task properly.
  • Give them toys and games, and encourage other activities that will stimulate their brain development. Work with them on age-appropriate workbooks and puzzles
  • You can help reading and language development by reading together every day.
  • Provide an environment that will improve their ability to concentrate by reducing distractions.
  • Encourage them to interact socially, by playing with their peers and helping out at home.
