How Graphics Visualization can help Children with Learning Disability
Having a learning disability can greatly affect a child’s development in terms of coping mentally and visually. Although this term refers to a very broad variation of disabilities, a higher number of children find it difficult to read and write. However, this does not mean that the process of learning should stop for them. It is important to note that these children require extra special attention in order for them to continually learn and develop their skills.
The use of graphics visualization has become increasingly popular when teaching or communicating with these children. Despite their learning disability, they are able to learn how to read and write. Graphics visualization uses visual diagrams and images that are presented in papers, thus making it easier for the children to see and understand. It can also be by means of videos, films or documentaries which enable them to still hear what the information is all about. These materials have been proven to be greatly helpful and effective to maximize the children’s potentials and learning abilities.
We can also make it fun and interesting for them by simply using catchy materials that would make them feel like listening or watching. Some teachers use comic books since it is easily recognized and very popular among children. And because of their learning disability, it is understandable that too much information may just be hard for them to absorb, which is why patience is a very essential character that a teacher or a parent should possess. But this does not mean that you should treat the children differently. It is a matter of treating them special without them having to feel like they are different. Remember that as a teacher, their confidence and outlook in life can dramatically change as they listen to you. Above all, love and care for them should be the key in helping them overcome their learning disability.
