Learning Differently

The first five years of a child’s life is when their brain grows the fastest. This is the best time for families to understand their children’s learning skills and identify their strengths and struggles. Unfortunately, certain learning disabilities often go undetected by many parents and educators. Screening for these disabilities may take years to conduct. Coupled with the fact that these may coexist with other conditions, it is crucial to seek out the appropriate resources as soon as possible. Here are 3 of the most common learning disabilities out there:

Dyslexia

Dyslexia is the most common learning disability in the United States. While over 40 million suffer from the symptoms associated with the condition, only 2 million have been formally diagnosed. Dyslexia affects one’s ability to read and write, with many having difficulty associating letters with speech sounds. 

Dyscalculia

Like dyslexia, dyscalculia affects one’s ability to process information. In this case, interpreting numerical values proposes a challenge to the learner. Due to conflicting accounts regarding the prevalence of dyscalculia, it has not drawn as much attention as dyslexia. 

Dysgraphia

Dysgraphia refers to difficulty related to writing. Like the aforementioned conditions, it is not indicative that one does not understand the content. A pattern exists where common words are misused, misspelled, and sloppily written.
