only on some of them.1 Problems with written tasks.
A. Letter skip in written works.
One of the reasons for this problem is a low level
development of the child’s phonemic hearing. The roots of this problem go back as far as
in the preschool period. Sometimes parents do not pay much attention to

letters mentioned above). This is facilitated by
the non-formation of methods of educational activity (self-control, skills

are hovering in the clouds. Of course, there may be personal reasons for impossibility.
Focus on explaining the material, for example, a quarrel with a friend,
problems at home. But it can also be associated with a decrease in the level of
concentration and stability of attention, as well as a low level of
arbitrariness (i.e., the teenager does not have enough willpower to engage not
too interesting subject).
Difficulties in solving mathematical problems.
Everyone knows that among children there are also pure humanitarian sciences,
who find it difficult to understand mathematical constructions. But such a problem
occurs if a teenager does not have the ability to orientate himself or herself towards

or will answer orally. Low level of logical memorization (ie.
sequence) and general speech development may also add
difficulties during the paragraph retelling. If the teenager is anxious or
has a low self-esteem, then for such a child, verbal answers can become
a real challenge.
