Introduction Learning style is different from one person to the other. In most cases, 40 students in a class will have their own selective style of learning, and these learning styles are important with aspect to their learning and schooling, but also important for nursing students who are training to be applied in their duties as Nurses for patients with learning disabilities. Most people associate learning styles with the commonly learnt seven patterns and styles that most people undertake. In the following summary we have illustrated how it is important for a nurse for patients with learning disabilities to learn and use learning theories in their practicallives as nurses. Main Body An Overview of Learning TheoriesAs per the Behaviourist Learning Theory, the behaviour is an important aspect of learning and the learner is a passive person who is only reacting to the stimulations presented to him/her by the environment surrounding them. There is significant belief in the theory of Behaviourism that no person is born with vices or good behaviour. They believe that behaviour is created with slow and collective reinforcement of negative and positive experiences[ CITATION Ert13 \l 1033 ]. Reinforcing the various influences also increases the chance of the people to face same situations and there is also the influence of punishment which can also be positive and negative. Punishment as per Behaviourism leads to a decrease in the chance of an event or situation reoccurring and it is also important to understand that behaviour is important aspect of learning as it creates a space for cognitive behaviour. This theory is predominantly used by learners and teachers too, which is used to provide certain specific duties from the teacher’s side. The first step taken by teachers in this theory based
education is to provide feedback to students in order to develop their skills; the teachers are also seen to divide the large task for easy management by the team member. As a Nurse working with patients with Learning disabilities understanding the various aspects of what can done to create a better education experience for them and to help them learn and understand better[ CITATION Pee05 \l 1033 ]. There is impotence to reinforcement of positive rules, using feedback to help the learner understand the various aspects of learning. Breaking down the tasks for a patient with learning disabilities provide them with the basic methods to help teamwork and also to create better. Learners; can be encouraged to ask questions and also ask for feedback. Albert Bandura’s Social Learning Theory States that the classical conditioning theories of behavioural learning is based on the theory that children are prone to imitating the beavers that are before them in the simplest ways. The famous Bebo doll experiment was done to make the theory of Bandura believable and useful in learning how individuals act and how people learn. In his approach there is a meditational process which is an effort to make Traditional theory of learning connect with the modern cognitive approach to learning. Bandura theory believes humans to process information and these processes are affected by their behaviour[ CITATION Ban06 \l 1033 ].
