Learning disabilities


Every child has problems with school at times. However, if your child is consistently struggling at school to master coursework, complete assignments on time, stay organized, maintain focus, and seems to be a “slow learner”, it might be time to consider testing for a learning disability.

Common signs of a learning disability include:
  • Difficulties with writing, reading, and math
  • Struggling to follow directions
  • Problems with focus or paying attention
  • Difficulty staying organized or remembering

Having a learning disability does not mean your child isn’t intelligent; rather, it means his or her brain mechanisms or “wiring” are different than other children’s, impacting how he or she learns, perceives the world, receives sensory inputs, uses technology, responds to feedback, stays on task, and more.

Common types of learning disabilities include:

Impact of a learning disability on your child
