Learning disabled people have this problem because they face great difficulty in listening, speaking, reading, writing and mathematical intelligence. Learning difficulties can be caused by internal factors like inherent, physical, medical and neurological and external factors like family, society, opportunities and experiences. Internal factors are intrinsic to the individual and can cause a person to learn differently. They are usually life-long, and are usually considered a learning disability. Dyslexia is usually considered to be a learning disability, or a particular learning difficulty.
• Encouragement: if children are not given the praise and encouragement they need, this will affect their relationships and friendships as they get older and they will have poor attachment this can develop into anxiety, depression and they will lack motivation. • Learning difficulties are also a factor that influences a child’s development. Children with learning difficulties will need extra support with certain areas of development and may develop low self-esteem because they get annoyed with themselves for not being able to do something, such as a simple numeracy problem or read a book. External factors affecting learning and development are likely to be limited access to services and support, but parents and carers may not be aware of this. • Children with ill heath on a regular basis can develop much more slower, this may cause longer term issues such as failure to grow or thrive.
Such children become less attentive in class, due to difficulty in following lessons in school, leading on to even being dropped out of school. They can also develop squint, loss of binocular vision, and can be more vulnerable to trauma to the non seeing eye. Eye trauma can range from relatively
It can be acquired through diseases, can be hereditary or result of birth defects. Other causes include wars or other armed conflicts, unhygienic conditions of living, poverty, geographical isolation, natural disasters, malnutrition etc. Thus, causes of disability go beyond mere medical conditions. For example, on account of malnutrition, incidence of anemia among expectant and nursing mothers between the age group of 15-19 is highest in India in the SAARC region. Also micro-nutrient deficiencies can lead to diseases like blindness, beri-beri, scurvy etc.
This a quite a list which most of us do this without thinking. However, with those who have problems with planning and organising and time difficulties they also exhibit working memory difficulties which become more evident in a child’s teenage years. How Does Executive Function Affect Learning? In school, at home or in the workplace, we 're called on all day, every day, to self-regulate behaviour. Here are some signs to look for: • difficulty planning and completing projects; • problems understanding how long a project will take to complete; • struggling with telling a story in the right sequence with important details and minimal irrelevant details; • trouble communicating details in an organized, sequential manner; • problems initiating activities or tasks, or generating ideas independently; and • difficulty retaining information while doing something with it such as remembering a phone number while
Affects of Kids Kids born with Down syndrome are likely to share question less physical features such as a flat facial profile. They can have upward slant to the eyes, small ears, and a bulge tongue (Susan Skallerup).Low muscle tone is also component of children with DS, and babies in particular may seem especially "flabby." Sometimes this can and often does improve over time; most children with DS occasionally reach developmental milestones like sitting up, crawling, and walking. Their development is usually later than other kids (Kathryn L,
CHILDREN LAG AFFECTS THEIR LIVES Many factors influence what is called lagging in children. Children who lag behind tend to fall short on their physical as well as psychological growth. The following factors explain the cause and effects on children exposed to certain factors which cause their poor development. • Effect of television on children: Some studies suggest that children, specifically in their early years, who are exposed to too much tv learn to talk slowly. Their language development is slow.
Although there are always outliers, the students from lower-income homes often arrived at school with less experience and exposure to literacy which in turn delayed their literary development and abilities. On the other end of the spectrum, students who are born into higher socioeconomic status homes are more likely to receive exposure to words, print, materials, etc. before beginning their
Coping up with the demands of the subject course, catching up with the deadlines of submission, and more at a day might result to students’ poor performance in school. On the other hand, instructors and professors find it hard to accommodate a large class size in less than two hours. This
Literature Review “Children know how to learn in more ways than we know how to teach them.” —Ronald Edmonds (1991) Each child learns in a different way, therefore if teachers are mainly focused on instructing the majority auditory/visual learners; the students who have different learning styles needs aren’t being met, which results in lack of basic skills moving forward. The idea of one instructional strategy fitting all is creating a void in classrooms; which in turn is failing to help those students struggling the most. Campbell, Helf, and Cooke, (2008) suggests a reason for some students’ ongoing lack of achievements that, “too often, students are instructed indirectly, watching and listening to the teacher or other students with little or no opportunity to actually read” (p. 268). Children who are unsuccessful early are more likely to start disliking reading and avoid it all together (Campbell et al., 2008). When children aren’t successful at reading from early on, they’re at a substantially higher risk of being unable to read at grade level (Campbell et al., 2008).
