Types of Attitude Towards the Child in Significant Adults as a Factor Contributing to Learning Difficulties

1369

Abstract

The paper presents outcomes of a study on features of school readiness in preschool children and on psychological and pedagogical factors of learning difficulties in first-grade children. The techniques used in the study were aimed at revealing the developmental features of conceptual, logical, abstract thinking (verbal as well as non-verbal test materials), reading skills and psychoemotional development in the children. Types of attitudes towards the children among the significant adults (parents, caregivers, teachers) were also analysed. It is argued that the adult’s constructive attitude towards the child promotes his/her emotional well-being which, in turn, positively affects the child’s academic performance.
