It’s summertime again! Every school year, children look forward the summer holidays because they want to put away their school books, get involved in lots of exciting holiday activities and visit their favorite summer destinations. However, during this period, a lot of academic regression may occur if children are not engaged in activities that enhance learning skills. This regression is known as “Summer Brain Drain”
Simply put, it is the regression in acquired learning skills that school children experience over the summer holiday.
Although some children may not necessarily regress academically, they may rather be unable to make any measurable academic progress over the summer.
It is very common but can also be avoided
Tips to prevent summer Brain Drain
Parents can help their children retain educational skills by incorporating the following with summer plans
- Keep lots of academic books around and make regular trips to the library.
- Request information regarding new subjects/topics to be covered in the next school session and encourage your children to learn about them.
- Make daily schedules of activities involving learning.
- Consider summer school or tutoring. Children with and without learning difficulties can get a lot of help from these educational programs. Summer schools can also enrich and accelerate learning in areas where kids show special interest.
