Break it down

Positive comments and small successes can begin to repair motivation, but motivation can not be maintained if the tasks required are not felt to be achievable. For many students with language-based learning disabilities, repeated failures have destroyed motivation and undermined competence. Small encouragements may not be enough, so breaking down challenging task into manageable pieces can encourage students to continue to make an effort.
