What is your biggest challengge in dealing with learning disabilty child, how do you deal with it?
Because all children learn differently, it is more important than ever that parents become involved, focusing on their child's strengths & building confidence, not projecting worry and doubt! read more
i dont have any piratical knowledge. but i think first comes understanding that child.
I recently learned my 8-year-old twin daughters have learning disabilities. It has given me a sense of relief knowing that there is a reason, that they aren't just stubborn or something.
One of my biggest challenges in dealing with it is just the fact that there are two of them, not just one, and they are constantly bickering. They also practically refuse to do their homework, and it's difficult to get them to listen.
On a positive note, however, I have never received any complaints from their teachers or any other authority figures; they are always perfect angels in public. I'm thankful for that.
An interesting thing about this is that I was prescribed the anti-depressant Zoloft when I was pregnant with them, and now there are advertisements saying that Zoloft during pregnancies may cause the child(ren) to have learning disabilities.
I do not know if that is the cause, but it doesn't matter if it was or not, because they're my babies and I will do whatever it takes to help them with their difficulties.
I hope this made sense and answered your question.
I have been challenged with this for almost 17 years as my son was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome and ADHD in the 3rd grade. My daughter also has a learning disorder. They both process information slower than normal so they have struggled in school and have IEP's (individual education programs) that are formatted just for them. The challenge has gotten alot easier the past couple of years. You learn when to make a fuss over something and when to just let it go. My son use to have anger issues because he didn't know how to express himself, that was probably the hardest to deal with. My daughter went through a bad time with bullies in school, calling her retarded and giving her a really bad time. She finally learned to stand up for herself and put a stop to it. My son was just accepted into a JVS program for next year, he is so smart. I'm very proud of both of them and all that they accomplish.
My son is 8 years old and was diagnosed with speech delayed problem when he was 3. Today, he is still struggling with his learning but he improves day by day. I hope he will grow smarter 1 day.
