TEACHER ROOM: Causes and symptoms of learning disorders in children.

in steempress •  4 months ago  (edited)

Children with learning disorders have a wide range of symptoms. These include: problems with reading, math, perception, writing, speaking or mental abilities.


Hyperactivity, lack of attention and disorders of the sensory system can also be associated with learning disorders, but they are not in themselves.

These disorders are due to deficiencies in the processing of cognitive information, which occurs largely as a result of biological dysfunction.

Causes of learning disorders.

The causes of learning disorders are not fully understood. However, scientists distinguish such cases:


  • Some children mature and develop more slowly than their peers. Because of this, they can not cope with the school's curriculum. This learning disorder is called "developmental delay";
  • Some children with normal vision and hearing may misinterpret the visual and auditory cues due to some unexplained disturbances in the nervous system;
  • Injuries before birth and in early childhood cause problems with learning at a later age;
  • Children born prematurely and children who had health problems shortly after birth sometimes experience learning difficulties;
  • Learning disorders can be inherited;
  • Learning disorders are more common in boys than girls. This is probably due to the fact that children mature more slowly than girls.

The main symptom of learning disorders is a significant difference between the child's achievements in certain areas and their general mental abilities. Learning disorders usually affect five areas:


✔ oral speech: delays, frustrations and deviations in auditory perception and speech;
✔ writing: reading and writing difficulties;
✔ Mathematics: difficulties to perform arithmetic operations or to understand basic arithmetic concepts;
✔ Reasoning: difficulties with the organization and integration of thoughts;
✔ memory: difficulty remembering information.

Symptoms associated with learning disorders also include:


✔ poor performance in control work;

difficulties with the perception of time;
✔ wrong perception of your own body;
✔ clumsiness in movement;

✔ Restlessness during sleep;
✔ bad relationships with colleagues;

✔ delays in development in certain areas (for example, in the development of motor skills, speech, etc.);
✔ the behavior often does not match the situation;
