Do You Have Or Think You Have A Learning Difference?
There are various types of learning difficulties or differences that can impact your oral language, reading, written language, mathematics, organizational skills, and social perception. It can make learning and work environments challenging. Learning difficulties can co-exist with ADHD, autism, giftedness, sensory or medical conditions, or anxiety/depression. You might find it beneficial to learn self-advocacy skills, compensatory strategies, strategies to cope with frustration/stress, or manage anxiety/depression, as well as develop other counselling goals as needed.
What Are The Impacts?
Learning differences/difficulties can have a significant impact on a person's mental health and wellbeing due to stigma, bullying, and frustration from academic challenges. These include increased risk for depression and anxiety, low self-esteem, emotional distress, hindered academic or career progress, difficulties in interpersonal relationships, challenges in daily life management, difficulty with self-advocacy and disclosure, and added complexities in parenting and family dynamics.
What Can You Do?
Speaking with a counsellor that specializes in learning differences can be a valuable first step. A counsellor can help you develop a personalized plan, offer strategies tailored to your specific needs, and create a safe and supportive environment for you to address the impacts of your learning difference effectively. Counselling can address anxiety, self-advocacy, compensatory strategies, strategies to cope with frustration/stress, or other goals as needed.
