Supporting Learning Differences

Posted by Christen Barbercheck on


October is all about supporting and celebrating learning differences with ADHD Awareness Month, Dyslexia Awareness Month, and Learning Differences Awareness Month.  


What are Learning Differences? 

Learning differences are the diverse ways that we learn and interact with the world around us. Learning differences include ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, and executive functioning issues.  

1. ADHD - ADHD is an executive function-based neurological difference that can make executive function and self-regulation more challenging, particularly in time management and organizational tasks.
2. Dyslexia - Dyslexia is a language-based neurological difference that can make language-based activities more challenging, particularly reading. 
3. Dyscalculia - Dyscalculia is a mathematics-based neurological difference that can make mathematic-based activities more challenging, for example, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. 
4. Dysgraphia - Dysgraphia is a writing-based neurological difference that can make writing-based activities more challenging, for example, spelling, handwriting, and expressing oneself in writing. 


Executive function refers to our ability to plan ahead, focus our attention, remember details and instructions, and handle multiple tasks.
