True Love

YOUR CHILD HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH A LEARNING DISABILITY — NOW WHAT? HERE’S WHAT TO DO:

-

Consult a profession­al to conduct psycho-education assessment­s.

Provide your child with emotional and moral support and teach them how to overcome any obstacles they may face.

Manage your child’s environmen­t and ensure they are not overstimul­ated by TV, iPads and other gadgets. Focus on the child’s strengths rather than their weaknesses. Read up on the condition and join a parents’ support group. Always work closely with your child’s teacher so they can also support your child.

Don’t be impatient or overcompen­sate.
