Does your child have difficulty with academic learning?  Does he struggle to read smoothly, to sound out words, to remember how a word is spelled?  Is she unable to write a “sensible” sentence or a paragraph that is accurate?  Is he having trouble learning math facts or arithmetic skills?  Does she struggle to make sense of word problems?  How about handwriting—is it legible?  Does he struggle with gross motor or fine motor skills?  Is she overly-sensitive to sounds, textures, tastes, or the way things “feel”?  Is he confused by puzzles, mazes, spatial tasks, or reading “body language”?  Does she mis-hear a lot of what is said, have trouble remembering what she hears, or struggle to find the “right” words?

These problems and more can be signs of a specific learning disability.  These are neurological problems that make it hard for a child to understand and master basic academic instruction, in school or at home.  These learning difficulties can be helped by appropriate, focused remedial instruction, taught the way your child learns.  Often, classroom accommodations will be needed as well.  The first step is always a comprehensive evaluation by a skilled evaluator, who will gather data about your child’s learning style and the areas where he or she is not making effective progress because of neurological problems.  You need to understand why your child has trouble learning successfully, what teaching methods will help him or her overcome these difficulties, and how to get the help your child needs.
