Why Some Students Find Learning Difficult? An Introduction to Specific Learning Differences
Some students find it difficult to learn. It is not for the lack of trying or intelligence. Rather, they have specific learning differences that make learning more challenging compared to their peers. These learning differences are lifelong. Although some find ways to compensate, others do not. Worse, some navigate through life without an awareness of their difficulties. This talk is focused on providing an introduction on 3 common of learning differences. Although there are no specific "cures" for these learning differences, some strategies will be shared so that learners with and without such difficulties can learn more effectively.
