Learning Disabilities

Types of Learning Disabilities

Frustrated writerEach day, the millions of children with learning disabilities face tasks that, for reasons unknown to them, never become automatic and always seem to stand in the way of their progress as students. For parents and teachers of a struggling child, the picture is not much clearer or any less frustrating. Specific learning problems are difficult to identify; their causes are generally unknown; and the long-term effects are hard to predict.

Learn to recognize and understand different types of learning disabilities in order to thoughtfully and efficiently take the best course of action for a struggling learner.

  • Writing
  • Reading
