Learning challenges, affecting one in five children, are neurological conditions impacting how the brain processes information. They hinder the development of skills like reading, writing, and math. Examples include dyslexia, ADHD, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia. Learning challenges often lead to frustration and low self-esteem in students who struggle to keep up with their peers.
Identifying these challenges can be tricky, as they're often hidden and only become apparent during academic assessments. Indicators may include a constant struggle with homework, difficulty organizing sentences, falling behind in class, frequent spelling mistakes, test-related stress, trouble following instructions, and low self-esteem.
