Learning Difficulty (LD)

A Narration from Mr. and Mrs. Goel (name changed)...

Both me and my husband as responsible parents were doing our best towards our child’s upbringing. However it became an alarming concern for me when he was not performing up to our expected standards in spite of several tuitions and assistance and with all possible teaching aids. Not that his IQ was less, but we found him facing problems like

About Learning Difficulty
  • His Oral test scores were good but failed in written
  • Seemed to be "Zone out" or daydream often; used to get lost easily
  • Had trouble with writing or copying; pencil grip was unusual; handwriting used to vary and was not illegible.
  • He was hyperactive
  • He kept reversing the numbers. For example he use to pronounce 23 but wrote 32

This was frustrating so I decided to take expert help. To my horror he was diagnosed with Learning Difficulty. I was scared.

What now...? What do I have to do to help my loved one...?

Then came certain comforting facts:

  • A learning disability doesn't have anything to do with a person's intelligence - after all successful people as Walt Disney, Alexander Graham Bell, and Winston Churchill all had learning disabilities.
  • Nearly 10% of children in each class suffer from Learning Difficulty. The most important task is to identify this at an early stage so that it does not become a nightmare for the child. There are many kinds of learning disabilities each having its own attribute and affecting a child in some or the other way.
  • If detected early with right guidance and remedial interventions, every child can be helped to integrate into academic mainstream.
