Learning Disabilities, Communication Disorders & Giftedness Grand Canyon University: SPE 526 February 22, 2012 Abstract There are different types of disabilities and they affect people in different ways. Some are recognized as the child develops, others happen in the womb and some are inherited. This document will discuss the definition, characteristics and causes of learning disabilities, communication disorders and giftedness. Learning Disabilities Learning disabilities are different from a physical disability because it is not visible to the naked eye. Their fellow students don’t see them using a wheelchair or crutches but notice that they get very low grades.
Caula Rogers Eng-105 English Composition 1 03/30/2014 Dr. Victoria Smith Impact of ADHD on a Child’s Schooling Children with ADHD generally have trouble in school, only because school causes many trials for children with ADHD. ADHD is not a learning disorder; however it can cause children to have problems with learning. Furthermore, children with ADHD have an excessive rate of learning disorders and will have problems with other school-work like calculation and following a long with his/her teacher during direct instructional time. But with enduring and an efficient plan, the child will be capable of succeeding in the classroom. ADHD negatively can affect a child’s social and emotional behavior and the ability to control them in a positive manner in a school environment.
I tried to keep focus but my solitude was starting to become unbearable. Yes there were many students around but they all seemed to have their own network since they knew their classmates from their previous schools while all of my friends were in regular ed classes. I started to rebel and slacked off so much that teachers began to wonder why i was in a advanced class since they thought i couldn't hack their work load when in reality all i wanted to do was be placed in regular ed just to be with my friends. Odd and dumb reason, i know but I didn't know that at the time. Eventually I was moved from classes due to my insubordination and i was content at the time.
She states multiple times that the children within the education system are being cheated every day because they are not being forced to read more difficult books. “Such benefits are denied to the young reader exposed only to books with banal, simple-minded moral equations as well as to the student encouraged to come up with reductive, wrong-headed readings of mulitlayered texts” (Prose 97). The reader can blatantly see that Prose thinks negatively of the high school curriculum that today's students face. It seems clear that Prose does not want to hide her personal view or feelings, so she starts her essay out in a way that we do not have to read between the lines to get a sense of how she feels about what she is writing. She uses more emotional language when she says, "The intense loyalty adults harbor for books first encountered in youth is one probable reason for the otherwise baffling longevity of vintage mediocre novels, books that teachers may themselves have read in adolescence"(Prose

My youngest daughter, Grace, since the start of her academic career, has struggled with both reading and mathematics. Having qualified for learning disabilities, she struggles every day with comprehension of basic math concepts but she does have other strengths that are overlooked because mathematics and language are the subjects that are important for schools to have their children master. According to college professor Wanda Hendrick, “the pressure to increase the importance of test scores has had negative effects on the curriculum of the schools. Instead of learning, an overwhelming focus on reading and mathematics suppress student and teacher creativity, problem solving, and the decline in science, music, and art activities.” (Hendrick). There are many ways to measure a child’s progress in school, but the one size fits all methods of standardized testing does not work effectively.
It is unfortunate, but it is also a fact of life that not everyone is capable of handling everything that someone else may be able to handle. 2. Does the book share insight into what special programs offer students who are identified as having learning difficulties? I believe the book about Joey Pigza showed very vaguely in the beginning of the book what special programs there were out there for children with his type of learning difficulties. It appeared that the school was making every effort to allow him to stay in a normal class.
Many teachers do not like “catching plagiarists and bringing them to academic justice.” As she states, it is not hard to just cite the author that originally had the information you are using (Bojar). Plagiarism is becoming a big problem in the school system. Many students do not understand what needs to be cited and what does not. The school system should teach students the proper way to cite, and they should teach them that copy and pasting is not writing a paper. According Bojar to students at the community college have a hard time juggling classes along with his or her family and a job.
If your child has proper nutrition there are many ways this will help out in the long run. One reason is school. As a child in school you would want to have friends, hang out, do homework together, and just be a kid. I was the kid nobody wanted to be around because I was a geek and I had a weight problem in middle school. I didn’t have friends because I liked school.
Without those papers I would be lost trying to recall what happened. Going through my papers I found I wasn’t very good at reading. At least that’s what I thought at first. I was reading my teachers comments and they all basically stated that I needed to concentrate and I would be fine. The first paper I came across was the results of a pre-reading composite test from kindergarten.
