Asthma and Learning Problems

Asthma is more than a respiratory condition that causes difficulty breathing. The latest research conducted by Canterbury University (New Zealand) shows that children with asthma are more likely to fall behind with their reading after a year of school than children without asthma. Asthma is now a recognised physical learning disability, alongside visual impairments and hearing issues.

Unlike wearing glassess to combat short-sightenessd, however, suffering from asthma has no easy medical solution. Fortunately, learning disabilities caused by asthma can be overcome with the help of learning styles

It's really as easy as 1,2,3:
  1. Let your child answer the Learning Style Analysis questionnaire.
  2. Read the report on how they like to learn.
  3. Create the optimal learning environment.
You'll find you may need to change the time slot in which you schedule homework. You may need to change the room's lights or allow your child to do homework on the floor. There are many environment, physical and social elements that can affect your child's performance. They are impossible to guess without an expert tool.

Our Learning Style Analysis questionnaire is an expert tool. We invite you to use it.
