Tutoring in Troy Michigan

04/14/2015


If you have a child who has been diagnosed with a Learning Disability, then you’ve likely already discovered that helping him or her to achieve academically can be extra challenging. Keep in mind that you’ve got many resources available to you, and you should educate yourself as well as possible on the specific disability your child is working through. The more you know, the better you’ll be able to help your child succeed. The Tutoring Center in Troy would like to assist you today, by providing some helpful tips you can implement in order to further encourage your child, who’s been diagnosed with a learning disability.

It’s important to remember that your child may be scared or disappointed, upon knowing that he or she has a disability. Therefore, it’s so important that you are there for your child, having learned all you can. Ensure that your child knows that you are his or her number one supporter on the journey. This could provide your child with a much needed confidence boost.

Second, be sure to take the time to focus on your child’s strengths and interests sometimes. Don’t always focus on the areas where your child needs assistance. Remember to highlight what your child is good at and finds enjoyable, in order to help keep him or her motivated for learning.

Depending on the age of your child and on his or her disability, you may have to guide your child in this, but remember the importance of allowing your child to make choices. If your child is older, more mature, you could allow him or her to make open ended decisions. However, for your younger child or a child that has a severe attention disorder, you will want to guide his or her choices. Provide your child with the tasks which need to be completed and allow him or her to choose the order, based on the time it takes, importance, or their favorite tasks.

Lastly, it’s important to remember that your child will face adversity. There will be times when he or she feels like it cannot be done, whatever it is. That being said, you can help your child become encouraged and more confident by providing your child with goals which he or she can attain. This does not mean, of course, that you should not challenge your child to difficult tasks, but make sure that what you ask your child to accomplish is reasonable and reachable.  

Don’t get discouraged if you are not seeing the changes you wanted quickly and know that your child may benefit from some extra assistance. You can also help your child focus more by creating a study space at home. If you think your child could use the help of a tutor, remember that The Tutoring Center is available and that our professional tutoring staff is prepared to work with your child.
