Helping Your Young Client Persevere in the Face of Learning Differences

By Adina Soclof, MS, CCC-SLP

Helping Your Young Client Persevere in the Face of Learning DifferencesClinicians and teachers working with students struggling at grade level are committed to raising their students’ achievement potential by creating opportunities to learn. In order to accomplish this, they need to learn new techniques that can help encourage discouraged students – particularly those who have different ways of learning – by supporting and motivating them without enabling self-defeating habits.

Helping Your Young Client Persevere in the Face of Learning Differences will provide new strategies and techniques for helping students minimize the patterns of “learned helplessness” they have adopted, appreciate and maximize their strengths, develop a growth mindset, value effort and persistence over success, view mistakes as opportunities to learn, and develop a love of learning that will help them take personal responsibility for their school work.
