Learning Disabilities

Children with special needs need special attention. By “special needs” we mean “specific learning differences” that put some children in great difficulty. As a result, it affects their growth and development within the traditional school path. Indeed, traditional school is not quite made to accommodate them and deal with their specificity, with some exceptions. In the lightest cases, these children are given third-time periods during assignments, in the most special cases children with learning disabilities are placed in specialized centers or are forced to study at home.

Disorders, disabilities, differences, there are many terms, just as there are multiple profiles of children with special needs. Nevertheless, these terms often refer to children with autism, dyslexia, dyscalculia, literacy skills development issues, ADD/ADHD or Down syndrome to name a few. Many of these disorders often affect motor skills or memory.

Fortunately, there are several solutions for children with learning disabilities. And although they are all unique, they have one thing in common: they need a lot of support, a lot of attention, materials and activities that are appropriate for their intellectual, cognitive or motor development.

In this regard, research is unanimous and advocates support for children with learning disabilities and disorders through play. This is the best way to help them learn and improve. That's why sensory and visually appealing activities are of great help to them. That's also why the Montessori method is a great alternative education for these children since it consists in creating a learning process in a favorable environment for all children.

Indeed, the Montessori learning tools and pedagogy encourages children with special needs. It enhances children's development and refines skills and motor skills while having fun. Montessori material and principles support the child's growth and development at their own pace. Montessori is about active learning and improves children’s concentration, as well as encouraging them to become as independent as possible. This pedagogy is approved by many parents (and children of course). In this category, you will find articles full of guidelines and examples of activities with adapted material.
