Laziness, Late Bloomer, or Learning Disability?
This is the question!
As parents, this question churns around in our mind over and over again as we watch our children interact with others, work at their addition and multiplication facts, and attempt to sound out words in their favourite books. And so you wonder, “Why is this so hard for them?”
Laziness, Late Bloomer, or Learning Disability | Snippet of Online Workshop by Diane Geerlinks
Is my child just lazy?
Laziness – “the quality of being unwilling to work or use energy; idleness” (Oxford Dictionary)
Will they catch up eventually?
Late Bloomer – “a person whose talents or capabilities are not visible to others until later than usual.” (Wikipedia)
Do they have an actual learning disability?
Learning Disability – “refers to disorders that affect the acquisition, retention, understanding, organization or use of verbal and/or non-verbal information.” (ldao, 2001)
In an upcoming online workshop on February 4, you can see and hear Diane Geerlinks discuss this topic. She shares from her own personal experience as well as from the perspective of a Professionally Certified Educational Therapist. Most importantly, she’s an encourager!
