Does my child have learning disabilities?
Learning disabilities are common – as many as 1 out of 5 people in the U.S. has a learning disability. Learning disabilities need to be identified early in school since school requires children to focus in reading, writing, math, listening, speaking, and reasoning – the very things children with learning disabilities struggle with the most. The fist sign of a learning disability is that parents and/or teachers notice the child is not learning as expected. The child will not show all, or even most, or these signs; however, if a child shows a number of these signs, parents and teachers should consider an evaluation to confirm or rule out a learning disability. Take this quick assessment if you think your child may have a learning disability.
