Tutor helping struggling child with math and science
01/28/2015
If you have a child who has been diagnosed with a learning disability, you are bound to realize the possible challenges that come along with this diagnosis. Though there are several different learning disabilities, general symptoms consist of a lowered attention span and trouble in processing certain information. When you have a child with a Learning Disability there are specific ways you can motivate him or her. Today, The Tutoring Center in Bear would like to offer five ways you can help motivate your child with a learning disability. 

First, you need to learn as much as you can about the specific learning disability your child has been diagnosed with. The more you learn and understand, the better you are going to be able to assist your child. 

Likewise, your child needs to know that you are his or her number one supporter. If your child feels that he or she has your unconditional support, it is likely that he or she will be more motivated to try hard things. 

You should help your child set achievable goals. Now that you understand his or her learning disability, and are already familiar with his or her weaknesses and strengths, you can help your child set goals that can be accomplished. We are not suggesting that you do not allow your child to be pushed and to try for difficult goals. In fact, you may know your child can do something that he or she does not have the confidence to complete. Strive to help your child see his or her ability. 

You can also focus on the interests and passions of your child in helping him or her become more motivated. If your child has difficulty in one specific subject area or all of them, there is still bound to be one he or she is more interested in. If that is not the case, try to focus on an extracurricular activity your child is interested in and does well. If your child enjoys reading, but struggles, you can check out our tips on how to motivate your child to read. 

Lastly, even after all of the other motivational techniques, you can consider getting a tutor for your child. Here at The Tutoring Center we are prepared to work with students who have short attention spans. Our tutoring methods are geared toward helping with focus, in fact.
