Further, if that same child has a writing disability, working with other learning modalities may help the child learn and retain concepts more easily than by writing alone. Motivating With External Rewards Externally, or extrinsically, motivated students may improve motivation when given some type of positive reinforcement for working on a task. Think about accommodations your child may need and decide if any existing accommodations could be changed or removed to encourage the growth of academic independence. Ask your IEP team what assistive technology they believe would help your child become more independent, and set plans for exploring and using AT.
Calmly and consistently using effective consequences is your fastest and best way to get your child motivated. Just be patient and persistent as consequences do their job and your child begins to learn better problem-solving skills. 1. Don’t let your anxiety push them to get motivated.
You will only motivate them to resist you or to comply to calm you down because they want you to leave them alone. This won’t motivate them as much as teaching them how to appease or resist you. Set the stage for learning by telling children why the material is important, what the learning goals are, and what the expectations are for quality performance.
Use specific language. Instead of saying, “do quality work,” state the specific expectations. Teach your child to accept that sometimes they will fail. Showing them how to lose or win gracefully, will give them the ability to deal with, and move on from, setbacks later in life. Encourage Interests.
Children who have a range of interests will be exposed to different opportunities. If, instead, you focus on helping your child take charge of his life, and support him as necessary to learn each new skill, your child wants to step into each new responsibility. Instead of your “holding him responsible,” he becomes motivated to take responsibility for himself. It’s a subtle shift, but it makes all the difference in the world.
1. Good teachers—teachers who encourage and inspire children, and then demonstrate the relevance of learning—can help us here. But a demoralized child is. Get your child out of her comfort zone.
When kids experience negative outcomes, they can lose the motivation to try new things. That can happen with activities outside of school, too. But taking risks and trying new things can help kids to uncover new strengths and passions.
Discovering your child’s learning differences, as well as ways to work through them, may help him to become an advocate in his education, to learn compensating strategies, to feel better about himself and his ability to learn, and to more fully reach his academic potential.
