Does my teenager have a learning disability?
We usually expect learning disabilities to be detected long before a child becomes a teenager. Young children who actually have learning disabilities may not be diagnosed because the child is a conscientious student and simply worked hard or learned to cope. In middle or high school, it may get too difficult to continue working harder and longer than other students, so teenagers with undetected learning disabilities may eventually fall behind and give up. Some teens suffer from one particular type of learning disability, while others will have symptoms from a combination of areas. It can be more difficult to believe teenagers have a learning disability because they seem to do well in most subjects, so we think their trouble area is just ‘not their thing’. Your teen can have normal or above normal intelligence and still suffer from a learning disability. Children should be able to succeed in every area taught in public schools. Otherwise, they may actually have a learning disability. This assessment can help you figure out which particular type or combination of learning disabilies your teen is showing symptoms in, so you can get help where it is needed most.

I took this test for myself in westview i had some problems like writing big, forgetting after maybe a minute, i had to have one on one with the teacher. In middle school i dont really remember i just remember trying my hardest in class and always getting poor scores like c d and f’s. it seemed like no matter what i did i always failed i started going to special ed in 7th grade that helped some. In high school i started noticing things like i was acting out in class, talking alot,getting into trouble, mixing up g and j sounds and mixing 59 with 95 or mixing 9 with 6. i have a short fuse and most times can’t control it. when people talk to me it’s hard for me to comprehend things, they have to explain it i dumbest terms possible. Also in highschool i had 1 teacher give up on me when he called on people to come up to the bored or answere a question i would raise my hand he would look at me and pick ANYONE ELSE but ME. for me i am in college now i still get g and j and 59 and 95 and 9 ad 6 mixed up, i get frustrated because of these disabilities please email me back i really wanna know my learning disabilities but wiith this test it was a mix of all of them… plz help!!

My 17 year old granddaughter complains that she zones out while trying to read. She can’t get interested in anything but vampire novels. She is reading at or about 10th grade level. She is enrolled in the GED program at a local Junior college. She has never been tested for learning disabilities. What can I do to help her?
I’m 21 and have been struggling with learning since i pre school. Its a relief to know that now i can understand what was holding me back for so many years.Its a shame no one picked it up when i was younger, it could have saved me so many from so much misery.
I have an 18 year old daughter with LD dyslexia, dyscalculia, and other disabilities and struggles daily with everything. She has had an IEP all her life through school but I feel as she has been just pushed through, I myself have LD and I have a hard time helping her or even understanding her IEP. There is so much more I could tell you but I would rather not talk about that here. I am feeling so hopeless and I need to be stared in the right derection in order to help her before she is on her own and cant live life on her own PLEASE GET BACK TO ME Thank you
I have taken about 20 or more of these quizzes and they all say i have high levels of possibly having dyslexia and ADHD, i am an highschool student and my parents have no idea, i don’t know what to do i am struggling hard in school, when i read word look like other words at first but i dontknow if maybe it is because of bad eye sight or something else. i can pay attenion in school and i cant even reada school book long enough to find a quote. is there a way i can get a test on the down low?
I think I may be a pumpkin!?!
All the Yes’s are a sometimes because I don’t have trouble with those things all the time.
i’m 15 and i’v taken a bunch of quizez like this including one for dyslexia that said i had all the singes for it. i can’t read out loud without studering or even do a simple times table problom( i never could memorise them) and my school did an iep but only said i had a high IQ.honestly i get really frustrated sometimes and have though about quitting school a few times so i can’t fail in class no more. my spelling is bad alone with everthing else and i just want to know if i have a learning disorder or not so my mom and my school can do something about it , even though my school didn’t detect nothing before i want to make sure because i don’t think they did anything. someone help im tired of not knowing whats wrong with me
