What is cognitive dysfunction?
Cognitive dysfunction is most commonly manifested in children and adolescents in the form of "learning disorders". A learning disorder is defined as difficulty in an academic area (reading, mathematics or written expression). The child's ability to achieve in the specific academic area is below what is expected for the child's age, educational level, and level of intelligence. The difficulty experienced by the child is severe enough to interfere with academic achievement or age-appropriate normal activities of daily living. Learning disorders are sometimes called learning disabilities, or specific learning disabilities. Types of learning disorders include the following:
- Reading disorder (sometimes called dyslexia)
- Mathematics disorder
- Disorder of written expression
The importance of cognitive skills:
Cognitive skills are what separate the good learners from the so-so learners. Here's why:
- Without developed cognitive skills, children fall behind because they aren't able to integrate new information as they are taught it
- The sad truth is that most students move on to the next grade before they have mastered the basic academic skills like reading, writing and maths... because they haven't developed cognitive skills
Remember: The ability to learn and make sense of new information is crucial to successful learning... and that's why developing cognitive skills is so important.
