Cognition & Learning Difficulties
My child has cognition and learning difficulties.
What is it?
Students with learning difficulties have academic attainments which are significantly below those of their peers due to a slower rate of learning. They will have difficulty acquiring and applying basic literacy, numeracy and language skills.
What does it look like?
Children may have difficulties with:
- Spelling and Reading
- Writing and Number
- Working memory
- Learning and processing new information
- They may also find it difficult to concentrate for longer periods of time
- They may have ‘Specific Learning Difficulty’ such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia
- Children may have diagnoses such as Down’s Syndrome or Global developmental delay.
