Learning Disability

According to the National Center for Learning Disabilities, a learning disability is a “neurological disorder that affects the brain’s ability to receive, process, store and respond to information.”  Learning disabilities are a group of disorders that impact an individual’s ability to master skills such as reading, writing and math that are necessary to succeed in school.  Most people who have a learning disability are of average intelligence or better.  However, their brains don’t process information the way most people’s brains do, making it difficult for them to learn new concepts.


Symptoms of a Learning Disability

Symptoms of learning disabilities vary widely depending on the type of learning disability an individual has.  However, they typically revolve around reading, writing and math.  It is common for students with a learning disability to struggle in a certain area, such as math, but excel in others, such as reading and writing.

The signs and symptoms of learning disabilities vary depending on the child’s age and development milestones.  While some signs may seem like normal childhood behavior, if the behavior persists, it may be an indication that the child has a learning disability.  Below is a list of warning signs:

Young Children

  • Struggle pronouncing different words
  • Difficulty learning the alphabet, numbers or colors
  • Trouble rhyming
  • Difficulty following directions, beyond what is age appropriate

Elementary School Children

  • Inability to sound out words
  • Difficulty with basic age appropriate math concepts
  • Frequently misspelling the same words

Middle School Children

  • Lack of organizational skills that interferes with a child’s ability to complete assignments on time
  • Difficulty with reading comprehension or math
  • Difficulty verbalizing thoughts coherently


Diagnosis of a Learning Disability

Because children with learning disabilities often struggle in school, it is important to identify and treat the learning disability as soon as possible.  The longer a child goes undiagnosed, the more their performance will suffer, which can lead to a lack of self-confidence.  Because there are so many different learning disabilities, there is no single diagnostic tool or procedure that can be used to identify them.  Learning disabilities are frequently diagnosed through a combination of testing that may be conducted by the school or child’s pediatrician and observation by a learning disability specialist.  Identifying and treating disabilities requires collaboration between the parent, teacher, pediatrician and a specialist.


Treatment of a Learning Disability

Unlike other disorders, learning disabilities are not treated with medication.  Instead the way the child is taught needs to be tailored to their particular learning style.  To keep children with learning disabilities from falling further behind their peers in school, it is important for parents, teachers and specialists to work together to develop an individualized learning plan that is tailored to the needs of the students.  Often a learning disability tutor can help students catch up in areas where they struggle and stay on track going forward.
