Will my child grow out of it?

Will my child grow out of it?

Have you ever caught yourself or someone else saying, “Will my child grow out of it?” Many times, adults and educators tend to think that the child may have behaviour issues. The common signs that lead to that conclusion are:

  • impulsiveness
  • inability to properly socialise
  • obsessiveness
  • aggression

They may be challenging to deal with, but to dismiss these as behaviour problems may be to misdiagnose the cause of the issue. In many cases, this may be a reflection of the child’s inability to properly communicate due to various speech and language difficulties.

These are things to take into consideration:

  • The child has poor vocabulary for their age
  • The child seems to have an inability to ask for clarification when given instructions
  • The child is inappropriately rude or careless when speaking

Especially in such cases where misunderstanding and miscommunication are high, it’s doubly important for parents and educators to consider what challenges the child may be facing so they can help the child resolve their issues.

College of Allied Educators offers our Advanced Diploma in Special Education, training educators and parents in the identification, diagnosis and treatment of these needs and the basic principles and practices of effective teaching and learning.
