December 1, 2017 – December 4-8 is Inclusive Schools Week and LearningRx, the world’s largest personal brain training company, is sharing tips for schools to help students with learning disabilities.
- Look for accommodations that include, rather than exclude the students. Constantly sending students with weak attention skills to a separate room can lower their self-esteem.
- Seek out opportunities to highlight commonalities among students rather than differences.
- Teach tolerance in the classroom to help students develop kindness, empathy and compassion.
- Recognize that even very smart kids can have a learning disability. Many geniuses—include Albert Einstein and Thomas Edison—had learning disabilities.
- Focus on strengthening cognitive skills. The majority of learning struggles are the result of weak cognitive skills, not genetics, laziness or poor teaching. One-on-one brain training targets weak cognitive skills to help students of all abilities become stronger learners in all areas. Encourage students to sign up for a cognitive skills assessment to find out which brain skills are weak.
