Learning difficulties can affect a child – even a gifted child. The parent’s task is to provide a small student with appropriate conditions for acquiring knowledge, as well as to help him when he encounters obstacles in acquiring it. What could be the cause of learning difficulties? How can they be solved?
What could be the causes of learning difficulties?
Learning problems can have many causes, and they are not always related to laziness. This is why it is important to identify what could be causing your baby to underperform.
Each child develops individually. Some students are simply a bit slower at acquiring knowledge, but the right support then helps to even out their educational opportunities.
It also happens that learning difficulties result from dyslexia (difficulties in reading), dysorthography (difficulties in writing) or dyscalculia (difficulties in counting). In such a situation, it is important to diagnose in a psychological and pedagogical counseling center (PPP), and then work with the child to help him overcome the problems.
The reasons can also be seen in the lack of proper learning conditions, family situation or difficulties in relationships with peers.
How to help your child learn?
There are a number of methods that can be used to help your child learn, depending on the causes of their problems.
1. Learning together
Learning together with the child gives very good results. Explaining difficult issues and doing exercises together can be a great support for a young student.
2. Adequate study space
The child should have an ergonomic space for learning – a large desk, a comfortable swivel chair, a desk lamp. A comfortable place to study motivates, helps to focus on responsibilities and, as a result, facilitates the acquisition of knowledge.
3. Educational aids
Teaching aids encourage learning and make it more interesting. A wide range of educational aids await in bookstores and shops that offer such items for schools and parents.
The following can help in learning:
- exercise books
- colorful boards and educational cards
- dry-wipe magnetic board
- abacus, sticks for learning to count
- globes and maps
- computer software
- books for children to motivate to study
When a student has difficulty understanding specific issues, tutoring will be a good choice. An experienced tutor will not only explain incomprehensible issues, but also motivate you to learn.
5. Help of a pedagogue and psychologist
When learning difficulties result from psychological reasons, it is worth seeking help from a pedagogue and psychologist, for example at school or clinics.
How much does educational aid for a child cost?
The costs start from a dozen or so zlotys for teaching aids. For an hour of tutoring, you should usually pay from 30 to 50 PLN. Furniture for a student is an expense starting from PLN 300.
When your bank account is empty and your child’s learning support cannot wait, quick loans, also available online, are the solution. The money can be used for any purpose – also to support a young student in gaining knowledge.
