    Explanation
    Emotional wellbeing encompasses more than just a person's current emotions. It also includes their intellectual abilities, such as their cognitive impairment or deficit (IQ). Additionally, emotional wellbeing involves an individual's self-awareness of their own emotions and their ability to appropriately react to situations based on societal norms. Furthermore, emotional wellbeing is influenced by a person's ability to motivate themselves to take action, regardless of their emotional state. It also involves their capacity to empathize and understand how others feel. Lastly, emotional wellbeing involves the ability to make informed decisions and determine the best course of action in various situations, which is closely related to social skills.

    Learning disabled children may be more willing to conform to peer pressure in an effort to become accepted, but this can also manifest as:-  (Select Three)

    • A.

      Low self-esteem or self-worth.

    • B.

      Decision making

    • C.

      Stress and anxiety.

    • D.

      Depression.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Low self-esteem or self-worth.
    C. Stress and anxiety.
    D. Depression.
    Explanation
    Learning disabled children may be more willing to conform to peer pressure in an effort to become accepted. This is because they may feel a sense of low self-esteem or self-worth, leading them to seek validation from their peers. Additionally, the pressure to conform may cause stress and anxiety for these children, as they may fear being rejected or judged by their peers. This can further contribute to feelings of depression.

    Many times it is tempting to fit all learning disabled people into the same bracket, but it is important to remember that everyone is an individual.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because it emphasizes the importance of recognizing that individuals with learning disabilities are unique and should not be generalized or stereotyped. Each person with a learning disability has their own strengths, weaknesses, and specific needs. It is crucial to approach their education and support on an individual basis, taking into account their unique characteristics and abilities.

  • 5. 

    The difficulty with the coordination of groups of small ______ is called fine motor disability.

    • A.

      Muscles

    • B.

      Tissues

    • C.

      Cells

    Correct Answer
    A. Muscles
    Explanation
    Fine motor disability refers to difficulties in coordinating small muscle movements, such as those required for precise tasks like writing or buttoning a shirt. The question asks for the term that describes the difficulty in coordinating groups of small entities. Muscles are the correct answer because they are responsible for these fine motor movements. Tissues and cells, while also important in the body, do not directly relate to the coordination of small movements in the same way that muscles do.

    The definition of ‘learning disability’ is quoted as follows:- •    a significantly reduced ability to understand new or complex information, or to learn new skills (impaired intelligence), with; •    a reduced ability to cope independently (impaired social functioning); •    which started before adulthood, with a lasting effect on development.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A learning disability is characterized by a reduced ability to understand new or complex information and learn new skills, which is often accompanied by impaired social functioning. These difficulties must have started before adulthood and have a lasting effect on the individual's development. Therefore, the statement that the definition of a learning disability includes these criteria is true.

    Even more importantly, IQ does  show off a person’s strengths and abilities.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    IQ does not show off a person's strengths and abilities. IQ, or Intelligence Quotient, is a measure of a person's cognitive abilities and problem-solving skills. It primarily focuses on logical reasoning, analytical thinking, and memory. However, it does not take into account other important aspects of a person's abilities, such as emotional intelligence, creativity, social skills, or practical knowledge. Therefore, while IQ can provide some insight into a person's intellectual capabilities, it is not a comprehensive measure of their overall strengths and abilities.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True

    Non-verbal learning disability is characterized by difficulties in understanding and interpreting non-verbal cues and information, such as body language, facial expressions, and spatial relationships. These difficulties can lead to imbalances in thinking skills, as individuals with this disability may struggle with tasks that require visual-spatial reasoning, problem-solving, and abstract thinking. Therefore, the statement that non-verbal learning disability is considered to be an imbalance in thinking skills is true.
