Your Child Is A Slow Learner NOT Dumb

In our society, the term SLOW LEARNER is generally regarded in a derogatory sense. Due importance isn’t given to SLOW LEARNERS, and the situation is considered to be the result of a child’s mischief and stubbornness.

Negative comments such as disinterested, dreamy, loser, dumb affect a child’s learning process and result in a dark future for children.

A SLOW LEARNER is not a diagnostic category, it’s a term to describe a student who has the ability to learn necessary academic skills, but at rate and depth below average same age peers.

There seems to be a general consensus that if someone is slow, they are probably not very bright.

There’s more to life than simply increasing its speed. Mahatma Gandhi

Research has found no consistent link between speed and intelligence, and in fact, some research even suggests that taking extra time to learn can result in information being processed more deeply and with greater accuracy.

Don’t let speed get in the way of good learning. Fast does not always equal smart, and slow doesn’t necessarily mean stupid; it all comes down to how you learn best.

Find your child’s strength and focus on that over their weakness.
