Specific Learning Disability

Specific Learning Disability (SLD) is a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or using spoken or written language in a child. The disability may be exhibited as an imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell or do mathematical calculations. SLD also includes conditions such as perceptual disabilities, brain injury, minimal brain dysfunction, dyslexia and developmental aphasia.

Children with SLD often struggle to keep up with their peers and see themselves as stupid or no good, have difficulty in following lessons, avoid doing school work, and due to the difficulty and inability self confidence is low in these children.

The child can recover from these symptoms if the problem is identified at the right time and in a correct manner, and has support from a special educator and family.

How to support a child with SLD?

  • Avoid long complex sentences
  • Give clear instructions
  • Get face to face with them while talking, making eye contact helps
  • Single instructions at a time, such as wear your shirt do not complicate the instruction
  • Reduce clutter, instead of many toys give one or two toys to play with
  • Encourage them to make clear choices such as “would you like to play with the dog or the cat?”
  • Reward efforts and success even if they are small, this helps boost their confidence
  • Help them develop extra-curricular activities such as sports, art, music

Overcoming an addiction to alcohol can be a long and bumpy road. If you are willing to get the support you need and ready to stop drinking you can recover from alcoholism no matter how bad the addiction is or how powerless you feel. Most people with alcohol problems do not decide to make a big change out of the blue or transform their drinking habits overnight. However, once you have made the decision to change, the next step is to seek help as some people can stop drinking on their own while others need medical supervision in order to withdraw from alcohol safely and comfortably.

There’s no magic bullet or single treatment that works for everyone. Everyone’s needs are different, so it’s important that you find a program that is right for you. Alcohol addiction treatment program should be customized to your unique problems and situation.
