What Are Learning Disabilities and How Are They Diagnosed?
Learning disabilities affect how a person reads, processes, or interprets information. Symptoms of learning disabilities can start at a young age, even before a child enters school. Approximately 1 in 5 children struggle with attention deficits or learning disabilities. Early intervention ensures they learn effective coping strategies as quickly as possible.
Here is an overview of common learning disabilities:
- Dyslexia – This affects a person’s ability to read, write, sound out words and distinguish between letters. Dyslexia is the most common learning disability in America.
- Dyscalculia – Similar to dyslexia, this condition impacts numbers and mathematics.
- Dysgraphia – Difficulty with handwriting and fine motor skills.
- Nonverbal Learning Disorder (NVLD) – Trouble interpreting nonverbal cues, like facial expressions and body language.
- Reading Comprehension Deficit – Difficulty understanding written or spoken information, which may also impact oral communication.
- Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) – Issues processing heard information. A person with APD may have trouble distinguishing background noise from foreground noise or hearing differences in sounds. Language processing disorder (LPD) is a subset of APD, specifically related to spoken language.
Diagnosis starts with a psychological or neuropsychological evaluation. A specialist will assess your child’s symptoms, behaviors, and other factors to determine which learning disability they may have if any. From there, we can connect you with local experts who can guide you through the next stage of your journey. We offer educational advocacy and executive functions coaching in addition to learning disability testing in Metro Detroit. Contact us at (734) 994-9466 to schedule an appointment.
