Suggestions on Learning Disorders

Coping and managing children with learning disorders requires a lot of patience on your part as parents. It can be a stressful and frustrating experience. There will be times wherein you would have the tendency to blame yourself, or even God. However, learning disorders is a treatable condition. By working hand in hand with your child’s teachers, you can look forward to seeing your child fully recover from their condition. The key to successful treatment of learning deficiencies lies in educating yourself about the condition. The more educated you are with learning disorders; the greater is your ability to handle it. Here are some suggestions on how you can cope with the disorder.

  1. Praise your child for whatever they accomplish. Whether it’s in sports or academics, recognizing their accomplishments can mean a lot to them. It can contribute to their recovery from their learning disorder.
  2. Discover the areas where your child is strong or weak. By doing so, you can help them tap their strengths and improve on their weaknesses.
  3. Work hand in hand with teachers. In order to monitor the performance of your child, you can always consult with their teachers. Find out their problems or how they are doing, so both of you can come up with ways of helping your child cope with their studies.
  4. Have quality time with your child. If you are a working parent, find the time to spend some quality time with your child. Help them with their assignments. Ask them about what happened in school during the day. Whenever possible, communicate regularly with your child.
