To put it simply, a learning disability is a neurological disorder that is caused by a difference in the way a person’s brain operates. While the concept is simple, learning disabilities can affect individuals in many different ways and on many different levels. While some have trouble with basic skills like reading, writing, or spelling, others many have trouble with more advanced skills like reasoning, organizing, or time-planning.
Today, more than 4.5 million school-aged children in the U.S. are affected by learning disabilities. While many show signs during their school years, others don’t discover a disability until they’re an adult or even later in life. A learning disability can affect one or more skill and because each individual is different, we take an individual approach to our care.
How We Can Help
At New Generations, our Gary’s Gang caregivers are trained and experienced in the world of learning disabilities and are happy to help your loved one improve his/her life. We offer one-on-one care that’s friendly, trustworthy, and personal.
Whether it’s a struggle with reading, a difficulty with organizing, a tough time with spelling, or another learning issue, our experts can help your loved one improve their coordination. We know those with learning issues need extra attention and a different approach to understand certain concepts, and we can provide that for individuals on all levels.
It’s common for those with learning disabilities to become frustrated with themselves and lack the self-confidence that their peers have. At New Generations, however, we offer both social and individual therapy that can help individuals develop a more positive outlook and better relationships with others.
Many times, individuals with learning disabilities don’t understand how to ask for help or are afraid to do so, but with our communication experience, we can help improve that. In addition, we can address communication issues that involve feeling uncomfortable or shy talking to others. We understand communication can be difficult sometimes and we’ll work with your loved one to help them enhance their obstacles.
At New Generations, we’re all about love, and the place it shows most is in Gary’s Gang. From our staff members to our individuals with learning disabilities, we’ve created a community that is caring, accepting, loving, and warm. We pay close attention to our members and offer one-on-one care when it’s needed, but mostly, we love to have fun and enjoy life.
