SLOW LEARNERS NEED A BREAK IN THE CIRCLE


SLP

Allah has made every human being different from the other this is evident when we see that human beings have finger prints and genetic formation. But these biological differences are not the only differences. People think differently, perceive differently, behave and act differently in similar situations. They have different interests, hobbies, likes and dislikes. Some are good in science, some are good in arts. Some are good in mathematics and some are good in philosophy. When it comes to medicine some people respond well to one type of treatment and some respond well to the other. Some recover faster from injuries, sickness or mental trauma and some recover slowly. All these things make one human being different from the other. Scientists might have different explanations for all these variations but one thing is for sure that these differences do exist.

Since all the human beings are different and they think, perceive and act differently in one way or the other, they also learn differently. Some learn and grasp faster while some take a little longer, some have better concentration while others have difficulty in concentration. Some like one subject or discipline others are good at different subjects or discipline. All these reasons make one student different from the other and create variation between their needs, interests, response and performance. SLP caters to these different needs of students. Students who were never admitted to schools or dropout at very initial levels from schools because they couldn’t perform well as per the requirement of the school or their teachers, families and friends discouraged them and think that it is a waste of time and resources to try and teach them or the kids simply lost their interest and confidence because they couldn’t perform well in their school, SLP takes them in.

At SLP teachers cater to their needs, nurture their interests and boost their confidence. This brings back their interest in learning and they start doing well in their studies. At SLP, there other talents and interests are also polished and they are given a chance to practice and show their talent. There are many success stories of such sort. Haroon Rasheed is one such story. He also was thought to be a child, who could not learn, by his parents and family. He joined SLP in 2011 alongwith his three brothers and one sister who passed out after one year but he remained there as his learning pace was very slow. It has been seen that slow learning in some cases also becomes a discouragement for the student and both factors reinforce each other due to which the student ends up losing interest in learning.

Contrary to that, as Haroon was highly encouraged for his every step of progress he developed a faster pace of learning and performing with time. Now he is doing really well in his studies. The formerly shy kid now has the confidence to participate in class discussions. He now believes that education is hope, it is the light at the end of a dark tunnel. According to him SLP not only helped him learn to read and write but also taught him how to talk and act properly and confidently in public. In his spare time he likes to fly kite.  He is also practicing his writing skills and his teacher at SLP helping him polish that skill.
