  • Title: Help for Families
    Descriptive info: September can be a stressful time for students AND families.. Here are some tips about making the transition from summer to school schedules.. Six Ways to Get Your Child Back Into the Learning Groove.. By National Center for Learning Disabilities Editorial Team.. Perhaps you re familiar with these common symptoms of Back-to-School it is: rolling eyes, groans, moans, an inability to wake up in the morning it affects children of all ages! But before you diagnose your child with this seasonal malady, take a moment to reflect on what getting back into the swing of things might mean for a student who struggles to learn.. Many children dread going back to school for any number of reasons but for those with learning disabilities (LD), this transition can be particularly daunting.. For those with an LD such as.. dyslexia.. ,.. dyscalculia.. , or.. dysgraphia.. going back to school might be a return to the constant reminder that they are different from their peers.. When school starts, not only must children with LD switch their brains from relax mode to learn mode, they must meet the challenge of gradually more complicated assignments, getting comfortable with new teachers and classroom environments, and they have to again work harder to complete tasks that their classmates appear to do with ease.. Here are a few ways you can make the transition back to school more manageable and enjoyable for your child.. Reestablish bedtime routines a few weeks before school starts.. Many families allow their children to stay up later and wake up according to their bodies natural sleep/wake cycle during the summer.. Suddenly waking up three hours earlier than his or her body is used to can be quite the jolt for anyone!.. For students in elementary school.. : To ease this transition, start moving up bedtime in five- to ten-minute increments and wake your child up five- to ten- minutes earlier each day.. This subtle time adjustment may decrease your child s resistance to the new sleep/wake schedule.. Keep doing this daily until you return to the bedtime regimen that works best for your child during the school year.. For students in middle school or high school.. : Allow them to change their own schedules as they see fit, reminding them of how hard it will be to wake up on  ...   some.. fun, educational activities that help your child practice math, science, history and social studies.. Keep activities short and motivating to prevent stress.. Reviewing familiar concepts is a good way to start.. Often you can find skill review workbooks for all ages at your local bookstore.. Build excitement about the first week of school!.. Emphasize the positive spend time together.. organizing school clothes and planning special meals or activities for the first days of school.. Make welcome back to school cards for your child s teachers and friends! Or, for your high school-aged student, practice writing a letter to your child s teacher explaining his or her accommodations and limitations.. This will not only help establish a relationship, but will be helpful for helping your child prepare for college, when he or she must make these connections on his own.. Read books together about going back to school.. The following suggestions might be helpful with back-to-school transition.. For children pre-k through kindergarten..

  • Title: Book Reviews
    Descriptive info: By Lynn Frances Guthrie, BA, MA.. Adding to the complexity are the social and emotional problems related to learning difficulties.. Anxiety caused by constant frustration and confusion in school, can make a student vulnerable to feelings of fear, anger, inferiority, and a barrage of ensuing emotional/behavioral issues.. The world we live in also plays a part.. The fact that information is literally streaming towards us at an ever-increasing speed from multiple simultaneous sources has to have consequences on our ability to sit still and concentrate.. Is it any wonder that more and more children and adults are diagnosed with attention issues that affect learning? And finally, the greatest impact on educational success, and perhaps the most deeply rooted, is socio-economic status.. Is the playing field equal for a child born into the upper or middle class versus a child born to working class or welfare parents?.. As an educator I ve taught a variety of students over the years, both in-school and privately.. My current student roster is widely diverse.. It includes twelve males and five females.. One Cambodian American student, one Haitian American student, a Japanese American, a Somali American, an African American, a Native American, an Israeli American, and ten Caucasian students.. That incredible mix of backgrounds includes two seven-year-olds, two eight-year-olds, three nine-year-olds, three ten-year olds, three eleven-year-olds, one twelve-year-old, one seventeen-year-old, and two adults.. Thirteen of the students live in two-parent households.. Three split their time between divorced parents.. One lives in a single-parent household.. All of the parents work but their jobs and incomes range from upper middle class to middle class to working class, from lawyers to janitors.. Four students are enrolled in parochial schools, four in private schools, and seven in public schools.. My two adult students are developmentally disabled and work at forty-hour-a-week jobs.. For me, teaching involves awareness and understanding of such issues as dyslexia, dysgraphia, learning deficits for numerous reasons, developmental delays, attention difficulties, multiple intelligences, systematic instruction, attentive listening, and teaching moments that can inspire students of all levels to explore and expand.. Apart from the differences in age and sheer numbers, the composition of my clientele mirrors most inner city classrooms.. It is as complex and multifaceted with the same variables and immense challenges that arise from the same diversity.. The big difference is I have the luxury of tailoring my work to each student s individual needs.. So what is the best way to achieve student success? The answer is not simple.. It s not just through teaching methodologies, curriculum, technology, or academic standards.. It s more comprehensive than that.. Naming the pieces is important but figuring out how they best fit together is key.. Two books, one published almost twenty years ago and one published this past year, offer insights into the matter.. They also offer hope couched in the realization that change is painstakingly slow, when time is clearly of the essence.. There is such urgency to the task of rebuilding America s educational system, such a need to produce thinkers equipped to face the demands of this millennium and beyond.. In Meaningful Differences in the Everyday Experience of  ...   moving examples of teachers and students who persevere to realize their potential.. He agrees with Hart and Risley that early intervention in the form of nurturing support within the family, supplemented by the community, is both beneficial and crucial to healthy human development, but he also presents a strong argument for another ingredient in academic and professional success.. He leans heavily on the value of what he calls character strength or noncognitive skills.. Drawing on the ideas of innovative educators throughout history, including Lev Vygotsky, Geoffrey Canada, and others, Tough enhances his thesis that building noncognitive skills is key to the confident and questioning mindset that will carry students through the learning experiences in their lives and allow them to grow and flourish.. What then are noncognitive skills? Tough posits these develop as the prefrontal cortex develops, similarly to executive function skills such as self-regulation, the ability to focus attention, retain and process information, connect and organize thoughts, and engage in meaningful discussion.. Included on Tough s list are impulse control, tenacity, and grit or resilience all critical qualities when facing and managing adversity but lacking in many students.. Brain science shows that these noncognitive skills are not innate but learned, and their implementation takes time, often through adolescence and into adulthood.. The good news is this means they are valuable tools that can level the playing field across economic strata.. Both Paul Tough and the Hart and Risley study advocate more effective support for parents in developing skills and strengths in their children, but they do not stop there.. Tough urges taking an active role.. This means the rest of us society as a whole can do an enormous amount to influence [the] development [of character strength].. Teachers, mentors, coaches, neighbors, local and national government all of us have a role in creating smart, strong, thoughtful, caring children.. The Hart and Risley study and Paul Tough paint a harsh picture tempered with optimism.. It is possible to provide all children equal experience and thus equal opportunity, Hart and Risley state while encouraging early involvement on familial, educational, political, and governmental levels.. Tough, meanwhile, tells inspirational tales.. He presents struggling students who struggle at home as well as school, facing hunger, chaotic family situations, and often abuse and contrasts them with students from wealthy families in high achieving schools, wanting for nothing but their seldom seen parents who prioritize work over family life.. Against all odds and with support from the wider social safety net that both authors insist we must continue to create, these students and more not only survive but succeed.. Reviewed by:..
