Chalk Talk: What Is a Learning Disability?
Learning disabilities include a large number of disorders, and occur in people of average or above-average intelligence. The brain of someone with a learning disability processes, stores, and then gives out information. The biggest indication of a learning disability in students is a noticeable difference between the student’s level of performance and the expectations for what that student should be able to do. Learning disabilities affect students in a variety of ways, and can impact reading, writing, spelling, math, listening skills, logical reasoning, and much more. If you believe your child may have a learning disability, ask your child’s teacher or guidance counselor to arrange for testing. You should also discuss the concerns with your child’s pediatrician or other service providers. Learning disabilities should not hinder a child’s confidence at attaining the same expectations as any other child. In fact, the curriculum is written so broadly as to be able to provide a teaching style and necessary supports for a child to accomplish any goal.
