HI, My name is Sandy Cook. I’m the creator of Learning Abled Kids. I’ve helped hundreds of moms and teachers searching for learning success for their kids. I’m an Instructional Designer, Learning Solutions Architect, Special Education Advocate, and veteran Homeschooling Mom.
Between my degree and consulting, I’ve acquired a LOT of knowledge about how to help kids overcome learning struggles. I’d be honored to be able to help you and our child too.
4 Keys to learning success you’ll want to LOOK FOR to help overcome your child’s ADHD, Aspergers, Dyslexia, and other LDs:
1st Key is to look for information specific to your child’s specific learning disability. It’s critical to understand the neurological issues your child has so you can work effectively with your child. This information will also help you separate your child’s disability related behaviors from ordinary childhood behaviors. Understanding the difference is important when it comes to both discipline and education.
2nd Key is to look for information about your child’s learning style(s). They’re really important for figuring out the best WAY to teach your child. Try to teach your child in his learning style. It’ll make both teaching and learning more effective. You won’t have to repeat yourself as much. Learning will also be more FUN for your child!
3rd Key you’ll also want to pay attention to the teaching methods and programs that are most effective for helping your child. There are numerous programs listed on the Learning Abled Kids website that have been proven to work for adhd, aspergers, dyslexia and various learning disabilities. Try to combine teaching based on your child’s learning style with proven programs. By doing that, you’ll have the beginning of a recipe for educational success. 😉
4th Keyis to look for assistive technologies that can improve your child’s access to educational information. For example, if your child can’t yet read, then audiobooks, text-to-speech and speech-to-text tools are important. They will help you teach and reach your child.
There are also Three Paths You can take for meeting your child’s ADHD, Aspergers, Dyslexia, and other LD needs and avoid your child being held back educationally:
1) ADVOCATE: Seek the learning support your child needs. Use the IDEA Laws to make sure your child’s school provides an appropriate education. Research shows that being held back does LITTLE to address a child’s ADHD, Aspergers, dyslexia and other LDs. Therefore, if your child is in public school on an IEP or EIP, you might find it helpful to go through the Free IEP Training here on Learning Abled Kids.
(By the way, did you know grade retention is proven by research to be INEFFECTIVE? It does little to nothing to help a child, and moving forward educationally is PROVEN to be more effective. 😉 ).
2) ADVOCATE & EDUCATE: You can hire private providers to fill in learning gaps to keep your child from being held back. Those providers might be tutors, therapists, learning coaches, private schools, etc. Even if you take the private, paid route for educating your child, you’ll still serve as an advocate for your child. Your child can make great educational progress IF the programs are provided properly. Therefore, you’ll also want to understand the programs your child needs. It will help you advocate more effectively for your child if you go through the steps to understand your child’s ADHD, Aspergers, Dyslexia, and other LDs.
3) EDUCATE: You can teach your child yourself (it isn’t as difficult as you may think). You CAN educate your child at home when you have the right information and proven programs. You can provide part-time help after school. You might choose to use a proven program at home full-time and (Overcome Your Fear of Homeschooling). You can homeschool learning disabilities right out the window just like lots of other moms have done, including US! It is NOT as hard as it might seem. It doesn’t matter if your child has ADHD, Aspergers, Dyslexia, or other LDs, you can teach your child.
I have followed all three paths. We did end up having to school our boys ourselves. I went through the Georgia Advocacy Office’s Parent Leadership Support Program to learn about special education advocacy. I advocated at my child’s school. We hired professionals to provide instruction I didn’t think I could handle. Ultimately I ended up teaching my boys myself in spite of their ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, executive dysfunction, and more.
Your child may be struggling with dyslexia (reading decoding), dysgraphia (writing and written expression), and/or have dyscalculia (math facts and math reasoning). It can be frustrating. It’s scary when you think about the long-term issues your child may have if he never learns the basics. I have been there. I have worried that!
If you’d like to know more about why we pulled our boys out of school, read our story of how we overcame learning disabilities through homeschooling. I helped my sons overcome their adhd, dyslexia and learning disabilities by designing well-planned, individualized education programs. Although our results are not typical, I am fully confident your child can learn when provided carefully chosen, one-on-one instruction.
