WHAT PARENTS NEED TO KNOW

LEARNING DISABILITIES

The term Learning disability (LD) is used to describe a range of learning issues. These issues have to do with the way the brain gathers, uses, stores, and sends out information. As he grows your child will learn many things —how to listen, speak, read, write, and count. Some skills may be harder to learn than others. If your child is trying his best to learn certain skills but is not able to keep up with his peers, it's important to find out why.

If your child has a Learn Disability, the sooner you know, the sooner you can get your child help. Your child can succeed in school, work, and relationships. Children with LDs may have trouble with one or more of the following skills: reading, writing, listening, speaking, reasoning, and math. The most common type of LD is a reading disorder.
