Recent studies complied by the University of Cincinnati have revealed that peer interaction can help students who are suffering from learning disabilities. Those with problems such as attention deficit disorder and behavioral problems are helped by a conducive learning environment in which fellow students are encouraged to help each other. The university’s online behavior analysis program also developed a series of tips that teachers can use to help create the right learning environment for students with disabilities.
Acknowledging the problem is the first step towards making things better. Some teachers are now taking a more active role in identifying the behavioral problems shown by students instead of dismissing them as plain mischievousness. Teachers are also required to spend more time getting to know individual students and the challenges they face. These simple steps, along with positive peer interaction, can help students with learning disabilities a lot.
