Slow Learner

What is slow learning?

A “slow learner” is not a diagnostic category, it is a term people use to describe a student who has the ability to learn necessary academic skills, but at rate and depth below average same age peers.

What is the difference between slow learners and learning disability?

An individual with learning disability has average or above average scores on a standard I.Q. test. An individual who has difficulties in the various areas of academics like reading, writing, comprehension and mathematics and scores below average on a standard I.Q. test is termed as a slow learner. The difficulties faced by a child with learning difficulty is very specific to the areas of academics and is not due to below average intelligence but the difficulties a slow learning child faces can be attributed to the below average intelligence and not to specific problems in the areas of academics or learning.

Children with learning difficulty are assigned certain facilities by the government that assists them in their academic work and exams. Unfortunately we do not have facilities or benefits yet for children with slow learning difficulties.

What can be the treatment for slow learners?
