Children and Learning disabilities


  • Many children struggle with studies and have difficulties getting good grades, however are very smart.
  • Often parents do not understand why their seemingly intelligent kids are failing at school.
  • Some causes include hearing impairment and weak vision‎, but there are other, less easily depicted causes that also affect kids’ scholastic achievements and grades.

Causes of Learning Disabilities

  • Learning disabilities impact students’ grades more often than any other disability.
  • They are defined as having a weakness in one or more of the following areas: reading, spelling, comprehension, writing, calculations, memorizing, visualizing.
  • These weaknesses can also co-exist with other types of disorders, such as hyperactivity, attention deficit (ADHD), executive function disorders, anxiety, OCD, and depression.

Symptoms of Learning Disabilities

  • Children and adolescents who have a learning difficulty may appear as lazy, inattentive, not studious enough or even as not smart.
  • Learning difficulties get worse with age and are not usually noticed at home or in the classroom.
  • They always have a negative impact on self-esteem and self-confidence and might destroy the social aspect of a child’s life.
Diagnosis and Treatment
  • Good treatment is only accomplished after having made an accurate diagnosis.
  • These tests include the assessment and measurement of intelligence, academic achievement, cognitive processing, memory, concentration and intelligence (IQ).
  • Therefore, it is important for parents and educators to take any weaknesses seriously and to seek professional help as soon as possible.
  • Appropriate intervention and treatment can largely help a child overcome those challenges.
  • Research shows that kids who have learning disabilities who have undergone special education, psychological support and speech/language therapy do much better as adults in the future than those who don’t get help as children.
  • They can improve to reach the level of performance of kids without learning and language difficulties.
  • Learning disabilities can have a significant impact on a child’s academic, social, and emotional development.
  • Early diagnosis and intervention are critical for the long-term success of children with learning disabilities.
  • Parents and educators should seek professional help as soon as they notice any weaknesses in a child’s academic performance or behavior.
