Effective ways of helping kids with learning disabilitiesA recently released revealed found out that as high as 10% of students or between two and three kids in a classroom are likely to have some sort of learning disabilities. It has been found that there are multiple complex causes of these disabilities. Luckily, the review has gone a step ahead to suggest some possible approaches for the learning disabilities.

Learning disabilities in children

In most cases, most children experience several learning disabilities at once according to the results of a current research. For instance, between 33 and 45 percent of kids experiencing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder have also been found to have dyslexia as well while 11 percent of the same kids have dyscalculia. Basically, dyslexia refers to writing, spelling and reading disability among children while dyscalculia is a specific disability associated with maths.

Published in April 18, the study has clearly outlined the underlying factors which could result to children learning disabilities. Also, there is also helpful information on how individual learning and teaching techniques can be tailored for the children affected by the condition. In addition, the study has also discussed about the best ways in which the teachers should be trained as well as doctors and psychologists who attend to the children.

Researchers also reported that SDLs or specific learning disabilities are mainly caused by abdominal development of the brain. This results from complicated environmental and genetic factors which consequently give rise to conditions such as dyscalculia, dyslexia, autism spectrum disorder, ADHD as well as specific language impairment. Any of these disabilities are the result of how the brain develops and their extent of severity range from one child to another.

Possible solutions to children’s learning disabilities

There are so many neurological development disorders that are already known and which can result in learning disabilities, which can even be suffered by high intelligent and normal children. Depending on how prevalence they are in the children, they can at times be even more serious than you might possibly expect, according to Brian Butterworth who is a study author and professor at Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London. While there is no much that parent can do at times, it is recommended that children are given the necessary care they deserve during conception and after birth. This ensures that the brain develop in the best way possible and minimize the risk of such learning disabilities arising.

In certain cases, it is not even easy to realize that a child who is well known to be having DHD could also be having dyslexia at the same time. In such a case, a teacher can mistakenly attribute reading problems of the child to ADHD alone and fail to treat the other condition. On the other hand, if the doctor knows that the two conditions do exist, specific learning programs that suit the exact needs of the child might be developed and be of great help.
