Learning Disabilities

When a child is experiencing a learning difficulty, a neuropsychological evaluation of skills and abilities can provide useful information and a foundation for the correct diagnosis and subsequent treatment/recommendations.

A learning disability is more than just differences of or difficulties in a child’s learning process. A learning disability is a neurological disorder that impacts how the brain receives, processes, stores, retrieves, and responds to information. These are complex disorders that can manifest in a variety of forms and differ widely in how they impact the individual.

At this time, it is estimated that 2.5 million students are diagnosed with learning disability and are receiving special education services in their school (IDEA Part B Child Count, 2009). There are different types of learning disabilities. They are all lifelong conditions that will require management and support. A child’s sole responsibility or “job” is to be educated. Therefore, if a parent is watching their child struggle in this area, it is essential they seek assessment to determine if an underlying learning disability could be the cause. With the accurate, early diagnosis, recommendations and treatment can be provided to mitigate negative effects and help your child achieve his or her full potential.
