|LEARN THE BARRIER|
Barriers are challenges that learners needs to deal with. The most common barriers facing learners include reading , writing , problem solving ( math ) , etc
Learners having special needs are associated with learning and behavioral problems. Sometimes the barrier is within i.e. language or speech deficiency sometimes it is outside the child. A learner that is i.e. hard of hearing will not be able to hear everything the teacher says and will miss out a lot. A learner with poor visual perception cannot see clearly on the board. Teachers should be mindful of the different colour combinations they use on the board.
If the school does not cater for the child's specific needs then the school is actually a learning barrier and that might cause the child to feel unhappy and in order to cope they might use incorrect ways of coping for example he might feel that he doesn't need to pay attention because nobody understands him. Therefore, he disobeys teachers he disobeys his parents he fights with other children because he feels that his learning problem the way he feels in class. If certain spelling rules were not established learners may experience writing problems. Learners with a low self esteem may experience behavioral problems. On the other hand , if the learning material is too difficult the learner may become aggressive. In many schools many children cannot do their work because they either can’t concentrate or at times it could be the learner choosing not to learn. People will think certain learners have learning disabilities but the learners themselves choose not to listen/learn.
