I currently went back to school. I am taking a course called Exceptional Learning in the Classroom. Exceptional Learning in United States is view with people who have a learning disability and their IQ lies within 85 and bellow. In the arab culture, if your child has a learning disability, no one ever talks about it. It is very hushed. If we have the resources to educate our children, why do our own arab society has a negative affect on kids with learning disability. The concern people have is "Will my child get married?" and some families a learning disability is view as retardation. Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Walt Disney, and George Washington. For today people: Robert William, Tom Cruise, and Cher. There are others.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Attention deficit disorderDyslexia
There are more, but what would you do if your child had it? Would you let educator just deal with it or would you work with your child who has any form of disability? Why do you think it is a hush-hush topic? Im just wondering why do arabs or muslims shy away from it and not talk about it.
