The importance of a dialogue between School and Family guiding Specific Learning Difficulty


The revelation of a specific learning difficulty often occurs during a child's school journey, causing concern among parents. Many struggle to accept their child's different developmental path, leading them to deny the problem's existence and adopt an attitude of perpetual expectation, hoping that difficulties will naturally resolve as the child grows. Studies indicate a worrying link between parental depressive and anxious disorders and their child's condition, often prompting them to seek “responsibility” within the school or among teachers. However, specific learning difficulties (SpLD) are neurobiological disorders necessitating a collaborative approach involving the school, family, and student. This contribution aims to emphasize the importance of dialogue between the school and family, promoting effective intervention strategies and best practices crucial for the student's well-being and educational success.
