My child has Learning Disabilities. What is that and how can I help him?
BC Ministry of Education states, “…Learning disabilities result from impairments in one or more processes related to perceiving, thinking, remembering or learning. These include, but are not limited to: language processing, phonological processing, visual spatial processing, processing speed, memory and attention, and executive functions…”
These things are trainable! Most kids with an LD diagnosis could overcome it if they participated in a program designed to do just that. Without specialized training, the child will likely have learning disabilities for his or her lifetime. Unfortunately, many kids with LD only receive an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) which merely addresses ways to cope with the problem, not solve it.
