Helping children realise their potential
Parents and Teachers Ask: Why is this child behaving this way?
At Blue Horizon Learning we answer: Certain children are trying to get our attention. Why? It’s a cry for help!
They need us to know they are experiencing brain connections that are simply unreliable and this makes the world is an unsafe place!
Everyday is a battle to meet the scary unexpected.
Do you recognise these children?
These are only a few small sketches given by teachers identifying those children who are calling out for help
He is so quiet that he is really no trouble. He mostly is away in a world of his own most of the time. It’s no wonder that he is having trouble learning, he struggles to follow what is going on.
The Restless Wanderer
She is very unpredictable. She likes some things and not others. She is very behind with her reading and spelling and does want to try. She can’t stay on task and likes to wander and distract others. She enjoys outdoor activities the best.
The Timid Child
She is unhappy at school. She says that the teacher won’t help her but she won’t ask for help. She complains that the teacher never explains things and picks on her and all the other children think so too.
The Fast Talker
If she stopped talking for a while, she might learn something. She does know some things but the other children get tired of her showing off. She only listens to what she wants to and the rest of the time she is trying to get attention.
He is always in trouble, and when there is a problem, he gets argumentative and may be aggressive. There appears to be no apparent reason. When you try to talk it through, he won’t listen. He struggles to make friends.
He has such a lovely nature, he really wants to please. Tends to play with younger children He is a good trier but can’t remember things. He is very inventive and clever, so why can’t he learn?
The Class Joker
As soon as you turn your back, he is acting the fool. It’s just to get attention but it tends to disrupt the whole class. He wants to do as little work as possible and rarely hands in his work. If he would only try, he could do his work.
