Programs for overcoming learning disabilities can help your child can learn.

If your child is struggling with schooling, whether in public school or homeschooled, you can help him with a carefully selected, properly implemented program. You can pull information together to create an educational that will help your child learn better and faster.

I am here to help you pull an educational plan together for your child.  If you homeschool, you can implement the plan easily.  If your child is in traditional school, you’ll have to convince your school’s administrators to implement and follow the plan.

My main goal HERE at Learning Abled Kids is to help you figure how to help your child educationally. I’ll help you figure out which curriculum you should use and help you create a learning program that will enable your child to learn successfully. 

If your child is ever going to succeed educationally, you need a solid plan for properly meeting your child’s educational needs.  SO, let’s get started:

You can design a solid educational plan for your child in five steps:

  • Analyze -Your child’s special education needs by assessing learning strengths, learning weaknesses, and learning style.
  • Design – Figure out what type(s) of programs your child will need to be educationally successful in all academic subjects, including subjects where your child’s disability is a primary or secondary educational factor.
  • Develop – Acquire the needed programs and make a plan for implementing them, which involves a decision about whether to provide the programs yourself or whether you will pursue provisioning by your school through your child’s IEP (easier said than done).
  • Implement – Begin using your selected programs.
  • Evaluate – Determine if the program is working and make needed adjustments.

By applying this process to your individual child’s special education needs, you can provide precisely the right kind of program for your child. Using great Programs for Overcoming Learning Disabilities will enable your child to overcome disabilities.

Your child’s progress can be at the pace of your child’s learning. The intensity of the program you provide will affect your child’s rate of progress too. 

Providing Programs for Overcoming Learning Disabilities

If your child is in school, you can work towards having your school provide as much of your child’s program as you can get them to agree to. Convincing your school to provide programs for overcoming learning disabilities may be easy or difficult depending upon your school district. The level of willingness to work outside of their standard provisioning varies greatly from one school to the next.

I am creating this step-by-step guide for figuring out how to select the right curriculum to homeschool and help your child overcome learning disabilities. Thus, the site is not yet fully ready to provide you with the upcoming step-by-step guide.  However, updates are under way.

If you want to get started, the initial page for the Step-by-Step guide for Overcoming Learning Disabilities through Individualized Instructional Design is available along with Step 1: Learner Analysis.  Step 2 is also available, and steps 3-6 are being written.  The website will be updated and restructured as I complete each page.  In the end, I will provide you with a step-by-step template for designing effective instruction specifically for your individual child.

Thank you in advance for your understanding as I make this guide the best I know to make it! If you want the information as it is available in newsletter form, you can subscribe to the Learning Abled Kids’  Tips Newsletter by entering your name and email address in the form in the left hand column.

  1. Please help me. Granddaughter drowning in despair having just learned of disabilities. Thinks she is dumbest one in class. I don’t know what to say. So grateful for your input.

    • Encourage her! Point out her strengths and gifts. Let her know EVERYBODY is good at some things, and not so good at others. She may struggle with learning, but I’d be willing to bet she’s got other great gifts. If possible, do NOT let her continue to “drown in despair,” because that can lead to worse outcomes. Get her counseling, pull her out and homeschool, get her into a special program, or do whatever else it might take to help her make meaningful progress with learning. We only have one chance to raise our precious kids, so it’s important for the adults in each child’s life to do whatever they can to insure their child develops a good self-image and has HOPE! EVERYBODY has a gift to share with the world and academic learning is not the be-all measure of a person’s worth. 😉 If you have any inclination toward homeschooling her, I’d highly recommend reading Overcome Your Fear of Homeschooling.
