Useful Information About Learning Disibilities

Feb 29, 2008
Understanding what learning disabilities are can help you steer clear of the traps often associated with diagnosis and special education. At times, when a child seems to lack the ability to learn it might be due to an inability than a disability.

When a child has an inability to learn it might be due to lack of exposure to the information he or she needs to learn it. If a child seems to have an inability to learn a particular subject, it might help to locate resources that can aid in teaching him or her successfully. For instance, a number of math books are written so as to illustrate steps in accomplishing certain types of math, but the books are often written for a single level of learning. Therefore, all students are expected to learn at the same time and on the same level that the book teaches.

Some books teach through pictures and illustrations, while other books display graphs, charts, etc. Most everyone learns in a different way; some learn by looking at pictures, while others learn math by studying charts, statistics and graphs. Much of the problem we are dealing with is ineffective educational structure, and several foreign countries have shown this to be true.

In some foreign countries where education is the top priority, children are advanced and learn at a suitable pace. In the United States, priorities are shifted: control and money come before education, which is a main cause of the problem.

Regrettably, when a child has a learning problem, he or she is usually sent to mental health experts for screening or plopped into special education classes.

This proves to be highly ineffective, thwarting the childs natural progress, as he or she falls victim to labels. Because of statistics, parents are often frightened into searching for answers from anywhere they can get them.

More than half of all children in special education classes and being treated for mental health issues are not always disabled; more accurately, they are not able to complete certain developmental tasks. The whole scenario seems fraudulent, geared toward gaining profit at the expense of children.

Schools are aware that children enrolled in special education programs bring in money for the school.

The ultimate solution is that before labeling a child as having a learning disability, he or she needs to be assessed for irregularities in learning. The fact is that everyone learns at his or her own pace, and at varying levels.
