Treatment

There’s no cure for a specific learning disorder. However, certain ways can be followed to improve the reading, writing and mathematical skills of a child.

For children with reading difficulties –

  • Special teaching techniques can be used that may include multisensory experiences to help a child learn.
  • Some modifications can be done within the classroom, such as giving extra time to complete the tasks or providing recorded tests to enable the child to hear the questions.
  • Children with reading impairment can benefit from listening to audiobooks or using word-processing programs.

For children with writing disabilities –

  • Students can be allowed to offer oral exams.
  • A child can be allowed to use an audio recorder in class instead of taking notes on paper.
  • The teacher may also provide printed study notes to reduce the need for writing.

For impairment in mathematics –

  • Visual techniques can be adopted to draw pictures of word problems or using coloured pencils to mark different parts of problems.
  • Learning math concepts can be easier with rhymes and music.
  • Computers may be used as well for math drills and practice.
