Do you know someone who honestly has a hard time coping up to learn English language or other foreign languages? Yes, all people have different levels of acquiring a learned language, but it is also a different issue when the factor in hindering him to learn language is not necessarily his will or determination, but his mental difficulties at all. This difficulty is honestly the most difficult hindrance to overcome.

When a learner has mental difficulties, this actually means he has learning disabilities. If you know someone—a child, a teenager, or even an adult—it might be overwhelming for you to comprehend it especially when this someone is related to you.

A person who has learning disability, according to Help Guide, cannot try harder, pay closer attention, or improve motivation on their own, particularly on cases concerning language learning. They honestly have to ask assistance to help them know these things. But, thankful to the source, such disability is not considered a problem with intelligence. “Learning disorders are caused by a difference in the brain that affects how information is received, processed, or communicated. Children and adults with learning disabilities have trouble processing sensory information because they see, hear, and understand things differently.  “

So what are we really going to do with these people is to expect for them because there is actually a hope for it.

According to Help Guide once again, science has made great strides in understanding the inner workings of the brain, and they have an important discovery that brings new hope for learning disabilities and disorders. Such term is called neuroplasticity. Such innovation refers to the “brain’s natural, lifelong ability to change to form new connections and generate new brain cells in response to experience and learning. This knowledge has led to groundbreaking new treatments for learning disabilities that harness the power of neuroplasticity to retrain the brain.”

Now, if you are a parent who has a child having a learning disability, you should keep things in perspective, do your own research and become your own expert, be an advocate for your child, and lastly, always remember that your influence on your child outweighs all others. If there is one person who needs to assist those who have disorders particularly when it affects their learning abilities, it is us parents. Never give up on them because such difficulty will be overcome when you as parents stand in their behalf.
