Many parents live with children who face different learning and educational needs. When a mom or dad is caring for a young person with issues it is often a struggle. You may need to understand what are their unique abilities and the best way to offer them a supportive educational environment.
I was helping a young girl who faces depression and dyslexia. Her parents wanted to find a place where they understood her problems. They also wanted to find a setting that would nurture and care for her. This meant finding a program that had the experience and training that would work for cognitive and mental health issues.
They found a fantastic school where they work with kids who face these learning challenges. Their daughter began to make her first friendships at the school. The warmth and loving teachers gave her hope and she learned to enjoy obtaining her education. This led to a lifetime love of learning and a feeling of self confidence.
When you find the right school for your special needs child, you are opening a window to a brighter future. We all have different ways of developing and certain schools are very trained in identifying the appropriate tools. This child also was excited to be in a school that had no bullying or negative teasing. She had previously been in a public school where certain kids would be mean to her. In the right setting, she thrived and obtained the skills needed to make positive progress.
The power of the best school combined with trained teachers makes a big difference. Young people need to feel supported, nurtured, be around others who understand them and feel their is a place for them. It seems that deep down we all want to feel that we belong. There are appropriate places where a child with unique learning needs can find the strength to develop their abilities. They end up happier, healthier and filled with hope.
