If you’ve recently learned that your child has a learning disability, you are entering a new role as a parent, and you will discover that it can be challenging to help keep your child with a learning disability, motivated and attentive. The Tutoring Center in Lawrenceville would like to help make this transition easier for both you and your child by providing four tips to help motivate your child through his or her learning disability. 

The absolute first way you can help to motivate your child with a learning disability is to ensure him or her that you are the number one advocate. You can do this by making sure that you know as much as possible about the disability, educating yourself on what your child is going through and offering support as much as possible. 

Next, you should take the time to focus on your child’s strengths and interests. You already know what areas your child does well in, so use that to your child’s advantage. These do not have to necessarily be academic strengths or interests either. If your child is very good at painting, or playing an instrument, make sure that your child has time to focus on those interests and strengths regularly. Remember that your child will be meeting resistance at every turn, so helping build your child up by focusing on those areas where he or she is gifted, is a sure way to motivation. 

Next, know that you should always be providing your child with choices. These choices can most certainly be guided, but choices nonetheless. What we mean by this is that you do not have to allow your child to make open ended decisions necessarily. You can provide your child with options, for example on what should be done first in a list of the days activities, and allow him or her to put the activities in an order. 

Lastly, ensure that you are setting your child up for success by creating attainable goals. This does not mean that you should not challenge your child to complete difficult tasks. However in the midst of that, you want to be ready to provide some tasks that you know your child can and will accomplish. This is a great way to provide an extra boost of confidence and motivation. 

Remember that you do not have to go this road alone and that The Tutoring Center is prepared to help each and every student that comes through our doors. We’re here with tips for you on situations such as motivating your child to read, and are available to assist your child in whatever subject is troubling him or her.
