Having a learning disability or being a parent of a learning disabled child is not only academically challenging in traditional school settings, but can have a negative impact on one's mental health. Low self-esteem, blaming yourself, and other difficult emotions are common. If you or a loved one is having trouble dealing with a learning disability, let the online counselors at 7 Cups help.
Unlike physical disabilities, learning disabilities aren't immediately visible or easily diagnosed. A learning disability affects someone's ability to interpret and analyze information and can come in many forms. Some common forms of learning disabilities are dyslexia, speech disorders, and attention deficit disorders. It has nothing to do with a person's lack of intelligence, in fact, many people with learning disabilities have the capacity to be extremely academically talented.
Diagnosing a learning disability is the first step, but after that, you need to figure out the best plan of action to work with the learning disability. A counselor can help you figure out what the best path is for you or your loved one. Everyone will have a slightly different path to follow, but commonly, a separate learning environment, therapy, and occasionally medication can help an individual overcome a learning disability.
If you or a loved one is dealing with a learning disability, let the online counselors at 7 Cups help. Not only can we talk to you about your frustrations, we can also offer advice as to what's best for your particular disability and help you work through your treatments.
