1. Ways to Defeat Stress
Stress kills. Stresses of everyday life can be detrimental to your health. People with learning disabilities may have an extra dose of stress due to learning challenges. Using simple techniques to decrease stress can be very refreshing.
2. Reduce Stress in the Classroom
Teachers have a challenging job. It is a profession that requires much, but offers little monetary gain. The down side is stress. Much planning goes into each lesson. Such a demanding task brings many stresses. These tips can be used to reduce stress in the classroom.
3. Believe in Yourself
Change your circumstances by changing your thinking. I have taught students of all ages with learning disabilities. One thing that I have found is the fact that many students do not believe in themselves. Many have been beaten down by negative comments by others or even past experiences.
4. Differentiated Instruction
Everything about children, from thinking to learning, is different. Because we know that they are so different, effective teachers know that differentiated instruction is needed to help all children to make connections for learning.
5. Organize Your Life
The ability to focus is a concern for so many people, including those dealing with learning disabilities. These are simple tips to organize your life. As a result, productivity will increase.
6. Learning Effects of the Diet
An unhealthy diet can have a drastic effect on a child’s ability to learn. A diet consisting of high amounts of sugars and carbohydrates and not enough fruits and vegetables can actually starve the brain.
7. Stress Management and Learning Disabilities
If we feel agitation in our body or mind we can use strategies to reduce stress. Parents, as well as teenagers experience stress. It is important to manage stress because it can result in mental and physical problems.
8. The Necessary Life Skill of Budgeting
Budgeting can be a confusing concept for people with learning disabilities. It is a necessary life skill that everyone should have. Financial goals are just as important as career goals in many ways.
9. Know Who You Are
Children with learning disabilities can often get discouraged and suffer from low self-esteem and embarrassment. This can result from the lack of knowledge about their disability.
10. Diversity in the Classroom
Children in classrooms today have individual learning needs. Learning preferences, backgrounds, as well as the needs of students vary. In order to adapt approaches to differentiation, it is necessary to take a look at instructional plans in a critical way.
