Hey, my loved ones.
If you’re new on my blog, I’m Shabria and thank you for taking the time to read my blog post. And if you’re day one reader, thank you for coming back for another blog post, really do appreciate it.
So, on today’s blog post I wanted to give my advice and tips to both middle and high school students who are struggling with their learning disability and how to overcome it. To the ones that may not know this, I do have a learning disability, I have dyscalculia, it’s difficulty with numbers (i.e. basic math, mental math, counting money in public/figuring out sale prices), and I have a hard time comprehending tasks/instructions without thoroughly explaining it me to my understanding (I later found out that I’m a visual learner). I also have an speech implement, where I mispronounced words sometimes.
For 7 years, when I was school I struggled with my learning disability and what I went through, so I wanted to share my advice for any preteen and/or teenager who’s struggling academically.
Advice #1: Please ask for help. If you’re way behind with your schoolwork, ask or tell your teacher that you don’t understand the assignment or homework instead of not doing anything about it. Either ask in class or after class or school.
Advice #2: Get organized. If you have a hard time staying focus in class, then this is very important. Buy a weekly planner and write down your school assignments and highlight the very important tasks to get them done.
Advice #3: Write down your goals. I remember when I was in school and I still do this as an adult, if you want accomplish your goals in during your school year; write them down on sticky notes or in your notebook. And after when you accomplishment them, you check them off and congratulate yourself.
Advice #4: Ignore people who make fun of your learning disability. Now, this is a little hard to do but you really have to. They don’t know your struggles and what you go through, academically. While you’re working on your academic weakness, they’re probably struggling as well but they don’t want to admit it or they’re skipping class or school. I remember my former classmates who made fun of my learning disability, didn’t even graduated with me because they waited to the last minute to get their class credits or trying to be cool and not care about their academics.
Advice #5: Figure out what you’re really good at while you’re in school. If you don’t know right now, it’s okay because you have plenty of time to figure out.
Advice #6: Don’t be ashamed of your learning disability. Letting you know that you can accomplish amazing things in your life, always believe in yourself and have self confidence.
So, those are all of my advice/tips for you. I really hope you take these tips into consideration. Thank you so much for reading xo.
