How do cognitive issues impair learning?

My son has trouble learning and his teachers want him to be tested for any cognitive issues. What can I do as a mother to help him learn things better?

You don’t have to do anything special to change cognition. There are a lot of tests to check for adhd and specific learning disabilities. Based on the results, the teachers will tailor to your son’s needs.
Remove distractions while going over his lessons. Do recreational activities to present the material so he will be more interested in it. Make sure his hearing and vision are normal because impairments in these can affect learning.
