Health Tip: Identifying a Learning Disability

(HealthDay News) -- Parents of school-age children may notice symptoms that could signal a learning disability. So what are worried parents to do?

The National Center for Learning Disabilities mentions these suggestions:

  • Collect your observations as well as documents from school regarding your child's academic progress.

  • Talk to your child's teacher, and ask for his or her observations.

  • Ask your school about alternate methods of teaching and helping your child.

  • Prepare for a formal evaluation, which may include interviews with the child, classroom observation, medical and school history review, testing and collecting information from teachers.
