What are Learning Disorders?
The Brain Balance Program in Norwalk helps children with learning and developmental issues through an integrated, whole-child approach. Learning disorders are a group of disorders that hinder the brain from receiving, processing, storing, and communicating information. At Brain Balance Achievement Center of Norwalk, we can help children with learning disorders through an integrated, drug-free approach.
Learning disorders affect 1 in 5 people across the United States, and they can cause an individual to have trouble learning and using certain skills. These disorders affect a child’s academic performance as well as foster low self-esteem and difficulty developing interpersonal relationships. Common learning disorders include Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, and Dyspraxia that the Brain Balance Program can help.
Reading, recognizing letters, learning letter sounds, and identifying rhyming words are challenging for children with dyslexia. These children often have trouble learning to spell and write once they are in school. Another learning disorder is Dysgraphia. Dysgraphia affects a child’s fine-motor skills, and it appears in distorted, incorrect handwriting. The next type of learning disorder is Dyscalculia. Children with Dyscalculia often have problems learning numerical skills. A sign of this learning disorder in children is noticing that the child has trouble with basic addition and subtraction problems. Finally, Dyspraxia is a condition characterized by challenges in carrying out routine tasks that involve balance, fine-motor control, and kinesthetic coordination.
