HOW TO SPOT A POTENTIAL LEARNING PROBLEM

It used to be thought that children who did not progress at school were stupid or lazy. Today we know that ten per cent or more average to highly intelligent children have perceptual difficulties that make it difficult for them to cope with school work unless they receive expert tuition.

Children who cannot keep up with their peers often become aggressive and disruptive. Or they may show symptoms of stress such as bedwetting. Others develop antisocial tendencies like petty thieving and vandalism because of their feelings of inferiority.

Parents are usually aware that there is something amiss in their child’s development, especially if it is a second child. Unfortunately, well-meaning friends and even professional people are inclined to reassure anxious parents by saying that the child will grow out of it’. Some do, but many do not, and it is unkind to all concerned to neglect what should be remedied, before emotional problems complicate matters.
