Reading and Scribing: What you need to know

Reading and writing can be difficult for a learner who has ADHD as both these tasks need focus and concentration. I have noticed that the handwriting of these learners can be very untidy to illegible which frustrates the learner because the educator cannot always read what was written. Concessions are given to these learners and this could include: a reader, scribe, additional time, additional breaks, a separate venue or special equipment.

Understanding Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is a client-centred health profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation. The primary goal of OT is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by working with people and communities to enhance their ability to engage in the occupations they want to, need to, or are expected to do, or by modifying the occupation or the environment to better support their occupational engagement.

Learning Difficulties

A learning disability is a broad term used to describe learning problems. Children with learning disabilities are often perceived as being slow, lazy, unmotivated or not smart enough. Learning disabilities occur because their brains understand (ing) and process information differently. As a result, learning new information and skills such as speaking, listening, reading, writing, reasoning and mathematics become extremely challenging for them.

Child Justice Act

The Child Justice Act 75 of 2008 (the Act) has had a long and tumultuous history. The process which resulted in the Act being signed into law on 7 May 2009 began in late 1996 with the appointment of a Project Committee of the South African Law Commission (as it was then known but now known as the South African Law Reform Commission) to investigate juvenile justice. This Committee began work in 1997 and in 2000 finalised its Report on Juvenile Justice together with a draft Child Justice Bill. This draft Bill was submitted to the Department of Justice and in 2002 it was introduced to parliament as Bill 49 of 2002.
