Children with Learning Disabilities:
Technology the KEY to Success in the Classroom
Teaching Children with learning disabilitiesinvolves giving rewards more than punishments in order to build self esteem, finding ways to encourage the child, enforce classroom rules consistently keeping in mind the special needs of the student with learning disabilities, giving out only one task at a time and most importantly creating an environment that allows the student to be successful in the classroom.
Auditory Processing Disorder
A central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) is a condition in which one has difficulty processing or interpreting auditory information. The typical individual with a central auditory disorder has normal hearing, but is unable to interpret or process speech when in an environment which is less than quiet.
Environments such as a classroom setting, the work place, community gatherings, and church are often very threatening because of this auditory difficulty.
Dyslexic people are visual, multi-dimensional thinkers. They are intuitive and highly creative, and excel at hands-on learning. Because they think in pictures, it is sometimes hard for them to understand letters, numbers, symbols, and written words. They can learn to read, write and study efficiently when methods geared to their unique learning style are utilized.

Visual Spatial Disorders:Dsycalculia
It is important to recognize that average, bright, and even very bright youngsters can have the severe visual-spatial organization deficits that make developing simple math concepts extremely difficult. When such deficits are accompanied by strong verbal skills, there is a tendency to disbelieve the impaired area of functioning.
Parents and teachers can spend years growling, "She's just not trying ... He just doesn't pay attention . . . Because other accompanying weaknesses usually include a poor sense of body in space, difficulty reading the nonverbal social signals of gesture and face, and often severe disorganization in the world of "things," it can be easy to mistake the problem.
