Quick overview Understanding Learning Differences provides parents and teachers with an overview of common learning differences, such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, intellectual difficulties, ADHD, dyspraxia, anxiety, autism, and speech, language and communication difficulties.
€14.00

It highlights and explains common traits and early indicators, while also providing strategies of support in areas of reading, writing, organisation, study skills and social skills. And it gives down-to-earth and honest discussions on parenting and teaching children with additional needs. All topics are viewed from the perspectives and experiences of parents, teachers and, most importantly, the
children.

Understanding Learning Differences stresses the importance of seeing and addressing the individual needs of the student as opposed to the ‘diagnosis’. While chapters are conveniently arranged into headings, the advice at all times asks you to look at the individual. The benefits of positive relationships between home, school and student are outlined, while roles, responsibilities and
approaches are explored.

Understanding Learning Differences aims to unlock some of the assessment jargon, discusses ethical questions and explores the alternative ways we should possibly be looking at additional needs or learning differences. Notably, the author shares her experiences both as a student and a teacher but,
most importantly, as a mother.
