About Learning Difficulties in Children
According to AUSPELD, it is conservatively estimated that well over 20% of Australian children are currently struggling with learning difficulties and 3% to 5% of students are known to have a developmental learning disorder.
Students with co-existing disabilities, mental health challenges, or complex medical conditions may be at increased risk of difficulties with learning due to issues related to accessing the curriculum, or missed schooling due to illness and hospital admissions.
Our Approach to Supporting Students with Learning Difficulties
Intervention and support that is aligned with current research evidence gives students the best chance to catch up in the fastest and most time efficient manner possible. Through Language and Learning’s curriculum aligned approach, students with learning difficulties benefit from targeted intervention that profiles their areas of strength and weakness and allows them to work strategically and efficiently to achieve their goals.
