Understanding Learning Difficulties in Children

Learning difficulties in children can affect their ability to acquire academic skills, such as reading, writing, and mathematics. These challenges can impact their self-esteem, academic performance, and overall well-being. Early intervention and support are crucial in helping children overcome learning difficulties and achieve their full potential.
