Influences Causing Learning Disabilities

Influences are the emanation of moral or spiritual forces and are the power of causing an effect by indirect communications. Influences are authority figures that strive to gain credit for exerting power over the minds of others and affecting their behaviors as a result.

Influences have an affect on our developing process, thinking and behavior processing. When we are adhering to negative influences, it is likely our learning capacity will wander.

Influential persons, including Congress, mental health experts, schools and so forth, sway millions to believe that learning disabilities are escalating.

Parents today have fewer rights than their superiors to determine how their child learns.

Parents teach their children to talk, walk, run, play, and so forth. When a child is growing, the child is developing strategies to function properly. However, when the development process is influenced by negative connotations, it often fails to learn in certain areas.

Regardless of our ability to control influences, our subconscious mind takes in all that it sees, hears, and then processes it for later action. Once the subconscious strikes out the influences will reflect in the persons behaviors.

Influences are strong sources that can hinder a person from learning. Unfortunately, we have a failure in education, government, law, and so forth that breaks down the minds ability to learn.

While millions of children are said to have learning disabilities, the fact is only 1/3 of our children are disabled. We can review to see that the influences in special education create learning problems.

For example, a young boy attends regular classes and has to fight through the bullying from other children everyday. The school personnel only see the reaction the persecuted child displays and finally gets tired of dealing with the child. The child is referred to special education, where here he is going through the same problem. The child displays symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), so he is labeled mentally ill.

The child is also considered borderline retard. Now, at home, the child gives his mother a series of problems, but she is able to work well with the child, providing that other influences stay out of the picture. She sees that the child requires a different level of teaching to learn according to his mental disabilities. She approaches the teachers that call her everyday to tell her that her child is interruptive.

She goes over the goals repeatedly set for the child by the teachers, all to go back to the beginning of the meeting later.

The child obviously was forced to achieve goals that were difficult for him to handle, otherwise he would be making progress.

Some of the demands placed on him also contributed to his interrupted outbreaks. For example, the child has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders; therefore asking the child to write more than 300 sentences for his interruptions is outrageous.

The child was asked to complete this task by a so-called expert that worked at a state hospital prior to instructing special education classes.

Now, we have children ranging from 13 to 16 attending this class and the entire class of children is asked to work tasks on the same academic level. As you can see there is a serious problem, since some of the children, including the child with interruptive behaviors has the learning level of a 12th grader.

The child was held back because of his behaviors. This kind of thing happens everyday and these people teaching our children are creating disabilities that may not exist.

If the child is truly ADHD, then writing 300 sentences for disruptions is an outrageous demand and will cause him to disrupt the class again. If the child needs punishment then he should be asked to write sentences on a short-term level. In other words, he can write 10 or 20 sentences per day until he reaches the number demanded of him.

Why is this teacher (so-called expert) teaching in the first place, when he said him self that he was tired of dealing with bad behaviors? I think we are wasting a lot of time trying to understand learning disabilities. In addition, we are definitely looking at the wrong people that are claimed to have a disability in learning.
