Re: Kids with Learning Disabilities
You haven't mentioned anything about talking to your kids.
I realize they are now teenagers, however, they are the only ones that can tell you how they really feel about what they are learning. Whether they actually 'get it' and are not interested, or that they 'can't get it' and just give up.
Surely there are signs at home, pre school, elementary that can provide some clues.
- trouble holding a pen,
- squinting at board / tv
- hard of hearing,
- misunderstanding what people say
- tuned out
- visual vs oral
- conceptualizing difficulty
Review their homework assignements, help study for tests, these too would assist in understanding potential problems - if any exist.
If you have any older take home paper from previous years, take a gander.
...for the time being, talk your teens and see what their asperations are, and help understand the connection between school and those asperations.
