Discovering that your child has a learning disability can be a difficult time. Knowing that he or she may fall behind his or her peers due to this disability is also quiet discouraging. However, being diagnosed with a learning disability does not mean that your child cannot learn, simply that you are going to have to come up with new and inventive ways to help him or her do so. Alongside your child’s teacher and the learning disability specialist at your child’s school, you’ve got a great support system to get started. Today, The Tutoring Center in Wichita would like to help you with this as well, by providing you with some ideas on how to encourage your learning disabled child to continue to strive toward knowledge. 

Your first step in encouraging your child who has a learning disability, is to be sure he or she knows that you are your child’s number one supporter. You’ll prove this by first learning as much as you can about the disability your child has been diagnosed with. Ask your child how he or she is feeling and let your child know that you are there as an advocate throughout the this process. 

You already know the strengths and interests of your child. You’ll do well to take time to focus on those as you are helping to encourage your child. Since there will be certain things your child feels limited in, and times when you will have to focus on those aspects of learning, you should take as much time as you can to ensure your child is participating in activities he or she likes and is good at. 

Another great idea is to provide your child with choices. Depending on the age of your child, as well as the level of learning disability, you most certainly can limit the choices you provide. You can even give your child options and have him or her decide which tasks should be completed first, by order of importance or time sensitivity. For an older child, you can continue to provide more and more room for your child to make the decisions on his or her own. 

Lastly, ensure that you are assisting your child in creating attainable goals. This does not mean to suggest that you should give your child only simple tasks to completely. However, it does suggest that you should help your child understand his or her weakness and set goals that are achievable in those areas, specifically. Challenge your child and know what he or she is capable of. 

As you are beginning to see results, you’ll do well to remember some other great ways to keep your child on track, such as ensuring he or she has healthy sleeping habits. If you feel your child could benefit from extra assistance, remember that The Tutoring Center has a professional tutoring staff available to help all learning levels and that we use techniques that help our young clients continue to pay attention and grasp the concepts being taught.
