The average child spends a tremendous amount of time mastering how to read and write.
If a child has learning challenges, this time can become associated with struggle and defeat.
It is critical that you find alternative ways for this child to experience success.
Be attentive and aware; seek out the child’s strengths and magnify them.
Keep in mind that a child may look to you as a barometer of their overall worth.
Remember that a child’s strength may not always be a traditional strength like sports.
It may be more unique, such as Lego construction or being a good friend to others.
