Question by luvmy4boyz: Do you view learning disabilities the same as physical ones?
I have noticed that many people tend to view a learning disability differently, as something a child can overcome if they try hard enough.

I have had people say things like “you know someday he’s going to have to do math independently
without help or without a calculator”

would anyone ever say that about a person in a wheelchair, “you know someday he will have to be able to walk on his own without a wheelchair” no they wouldn’t.

So I am just curious, do you view a learning disability as a true disability or do you think kids who have a learning disability could overcome it and they just aren’t trying hard enough? Would you ever see someone in a wheelchair and think they probably just haven’t tried hard enough to walk?

An answer from an earlier question got me thinking about this. Someone basically said it’s not fair that one child would get words like cat and dog for spelling while other children would have harder words. It makes me think that person doesn’t believe a learning disability is a true thing and that if the kid with the easier words tried harder they should be able to do the harder words like everyone else. To me that’s like saying it’s not fair that a child in a wheelchair should get to use the elevator while everyone else has to use the stairs. Personally I’d rather be able to use the stairs, I’d rather be able to do the harder words. No one chooses to have a disability and it aggravates me when people say things like that.
Selar: who said anything about an 8th grader being able to spell dog? You just said it wasn’t fair for one child to have words like cat and dog while other kids have harder words. So you think all kids should have the same words to spell no matter what? What if the words were too easy for your child? You wouldn’t want the school to challenge your child with words more at his/her level? Why is it different for a child who has a real diagnosed learning disability to get words at his/her level? Your answer is just to hold them back each year until they “get it”? LOL WOW

I do…and I also view a mental handicap as a disability as well. Ex: depression. Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it is any less real.

Does Your Dog Wear the Pants? Happy Paws K-9 Academy Offers New Approach to Dog Training











The answer to all your canine problems!


Maplecrest, NY (PRWEB) September 22, 2010

Happy Paws K-9 Academy, known for its unique communication-oriented approach to dog training, (http://www.happypawsk9academy.com) has opened a new location in the Catskills in Maplecrest, New York (the Hunter/Windham ski area).

Their philosophy is that training a dog is not just about the dog. Rather, in their approach to good canine behavior, they not only teach the dog what is acceptable and not acceptable behavior, but they also teach the humans how their dog perceives what they are saying or doing. They will show you how to modify your behavior to get the results you desire.

According to Head Trainer Lorraine Siena Reid (http://www.happypawsk9academy.com/AboutUs.aspx ), there are many things that affect your dog’s perception such as your body posture, timing, the tone of your voice, and your attitude – just to name a few. For that reason, Siena Reid uses lots of affection and praise in her training techniques.

But unlike most dog training firms, Happy Paws K-9 Academy does not believe one method of training fits all. Rather, they use a combination of methods that best fit the needs of your dog.

Does your dog just need some house manners or has that lovable four-legged pooch traded his halo for horns? Has that cuddly lovable animal you first brought home turned into Cujo overnight? Have you been asked to leave other obedience classes? Have other trainers told you your dog is hopeless and should be put down? Happy Paws K-9 Academy has had successful results with a vast array of dog problems.

Whether you need simple house manners, confidence building to overcome fear, or have a major aggression issue, they are there to help you. The firm also specializes in off-leash control, which Siena Reid notes “comes in very handy while hiking or biking in the woods.”

“The more issues we can help you combat, the better it looks for us,” adds Siena Reid.

Happy Paws K-9 Academy offers a free private in-home consultation to discuss the needs of your dog – and they do not believe in high-pressure sales tactics. “The only thing you’ve got to lose is your dog’s bad behavior,” says Siena Reid.

Lorraine Siena Reid is also available to speak with the media about a variety of dog training methodologies and behavior questions.
