Montessori is for every child

Montessori and the Learning disability child.

There are several things about the Montessori philosophy and materials that make it a wonderful option for children with learning disabilities.


The materials and the environment:

The Montessori classroom is filled with beautiful materials that engage all of the senses. The materials are hands-on, therapeutic enticing, and include a built-in control of error. In most cases, they teach only one skill at a time. they offer a wonderful chance for children with learning disabilities to use their hands to explore and learn.


Multi-age classrooms:

In Montessori, children are put into multi-age classrooms, so they can learn from older children, and help the younger children in the classroom.


Following the child:

Montessori children are encouraged to work at their own pace, without the burden of competition, test scores, and grades. They are also encouraged to follow their own interests when it comes to reading, writing, and research. This kind of freedom allows children with learning disabilities to flourish.



The multi-age classroom means a child is with a teacher for a 3- year cycle, allowing the teacher to build a strong relationship with the parents and the child as well. The child doesn’t have the stress of always starting in a new classroom at the beginning of each school year.


The philosophy of Montessori:

In Montessori, there is an emphasis on peace, cooperation, and respect, making it much less likely that a child with learning disabilities will be teased or ostracized. Instead, the other children usually make an effort to accept, be a friend, and encourage a learning disabled child.
