Krutika (Nita) Jaggi is doing her M.Ed in Learning Disability from S.N.D.T University. She also happens to be India’s only female crossword creator!
My son is following the NIOS syllabus. He has already done his Pre-NIOS but is not doing well. His marks are low and he is to appear for his NIOS this year. I had earlier done an LD assessment five to six years ago and he has been given a certificate. What do I do so that he can improve in his studies?
Firstly, he needs to go in for a re-assessment so that you know his latest scores. All the assessments done should be repeated every one-and-a-half year. After receiving the LD certificate, did he receive remedial sessions? If not, then immediately get a psycho-educational evaluation done and based on the report start with his remedial sessions wherein he will begin learning study skills like Mnemonics, or memory tricks, to help him remember particular facts. This will definitely help him during his examinations.
