All children need love, encouragement, and support, and for kids with learning disabilities, such positive reinforcement can help ensure that they emerge with a strong sense of self-worth, confidence, and the determination to keep going even when things are tough.

In searching for ways to help children with learning disabilities, remember that you are looking for ways to help them help themselves. Your job is not to “cure” the learning disability, but to give them the social and emotional tools they need, to work through challenges. In the long run, facing and overcoming a challenge such as a learning disability can help children grow stronger and more resilient.

Always remember that the way you behave and respond to challenges has a big impact. A good attitude won’t solve the problems associated with a learning disability, but it can give them hope and confidence that things can improve and that they will eventually succeed.
