Tutor helping struggling child with math and science
10/06/2014
Are you aware that when you are told your child or any child has “Learning Disabilities” there is a very broad spectrum of what this could infer. LDs are not simply one diagnosis, but in fact are a conglomerate of several disabilities. The common denominator is that the disability affects a child’s learning, specifically. Though a child with LD could certainly display emotion or psychological problems, it is important to note that they are not one in the same. 7 out of 10 adults will confuse the diagnosis of a LD with that of a mental disorder, more commonly called an intellectual disorder. The Tutoring Center in Bear would love to share with you some ways that LD can affect the learning process, as well as a few ways that you can help your child, should he or she be diagnosed. 

What LD Affects

Mathematical problem solving, Critical Thinking, Verbal and Written Communication, as well as Reading Comprehension are the major categories affected by LD. This does not mean that every child with an LD has issues in each of these areas. In fact, some children who have Autism Spectrum Disorder, which is part of the LD category may very well have difficulty verbalizing thoughts, but could be geniuses at math. They do not lack spatial skills, but instead communication skills. Likewise, someone who has severe math anxiety and dyslexia caused by stress, would more than likely dislike math, but could be excellent at understanding reading and communicating what he or she has learned. 

Your Help Goes a Long Way

- When your child is diagnosed with an LD you and your child may be frustrated or perhaps disappointed. We understand that it can be difficult to hear, however it is important for you to quickly get your emotions in check so that you can assure your child that he or she is not the disability they’ve been diagnosed with, that it is possible to rise above, and that you are there to assist them in any way you can. 
- You will therefore, want to be sure that you communicate with school personnel and that you understand what it is your child has been diagnosed with, what methods will work best for him or her, and how you can ensure those things happen.
- Lastly, you can always consider hiring a professional tutoring staff to help your child in the area of struggle. Remember that The Tutoring Center has expertly trained tutors who know how to help in the teaching and learning process of students with learning disabilities.
