Growing up can be hard for children with learning difficulties.
Even for children with common difficulties such as dyslexia or dyspraxia, as their confidence is often knocked due to a lack of attention in school, often making it hard for them to cope in some social situations.
Taking care of your child’s physical health is just as important as taking care of their mental health.
It is important that you find the right healthcare professionals to help you with this challenge.
When a child’s confidence is lost as a result of their abilities, they may feel as though they have something wrong with them.
Finding a doctor and dentist that is reassuring and engaging with young people is important.
It will encourage them to feel more comfortable and confident outside of a learning environment and being in social situations.
