Many children may struggle in school with some topics or skills from time to time. When children try hard and still struggle with a specific set of skills over time, it could be a sign of a learning difficulty or a learning disorder. Having a learning disorder means that a child has difficulty in one or more areas of learning, even when overall intelligence or motivation is not affected.
Exactly. Changing the perception of how your child should be learning following a specific set of recommendations will accelerate progress at school. In fact, most individuals with a learning disability are highly successful once they embrace how they learn best!
