Understanding Learning Difficulties
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
ADHD is a condition that is characterized by excessive behaviors of inattentiveness, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. ADHD differs from other behavioral disorders in that individuals will experience functional problems – such as school difficulties, behavioral problems, academic underachievement, and difficult relationships with family and peers – that affect the individual’s educational level, although their rate of intelligence is normal or even above normal.
Reading Difficulty or Dyslexia
Dyslexia is a language-based reading disability that affects a student’s ability to comprehend and use written and spoken language effectively in spite of having average or above average intelligence. It is characterized by difficulties or weaknesses in accurate and fluent reading, spelling, and writing.
Writing Difficulties or Dysgraphia
Dysgraphia is a specific learning difficulty that affects an individual’s writing ability. Dysgraphia can appear as difficulties with written expression (i.e. putting thoughts on paper), poor handwriting, and spelling. These challenges in writing are not a result of a student’s intellectual level (they usually have normal or above normal intelligence).
The “Math Difficulty” Dyscalculia
Dyscalculia refers to a math-related learning difficulty affecting a student’s ability to learn arithmetic concepts and to execute mathematical calculations. These difficulties may be due to struggles with cognitive functioning abilities associated with mathematical processing. Students with dyscalculia often exhibit challenges in their ability to perceive, process, analyze, or store and remember information. However, despite these difficulties, the student’s level of intelligence is normal or above average.
Memory is considered to be one of the most essential factors in the learning process. Student’s memory capacities play a significant role in their ability to progress in all areas of their lives. It is through memory that students attain the ability to effectively store and retrieve previously learned information and skills think and reason through them as they apply them to new experiences. Through this students are building a bridge between their past and their future.
