Learning Disability Tests for Children

Learning disability tests for children cover a broad range of areas. Children with learning disabilities usually have a normal range of intelligence. They try very hard to follow instructions, concentrate and act well at home and in school. Yet, despite their efforts, they do not master their subjects and, as a result, they begin to fall behind. Experts believe that learning disabilities are caused by a difficulty with the nervous system that affects receiving, processing or communicating information. Learning disabilities may also run in families. Some children with learning disabilities are also hyperactive, unable to sit still, easily distracted, and have a short attention span. But learning disabilities are treatable. If not detected and treated early, however, they can have a tragic effect on a person’s life. A child who does not learn addition in elementary school cannot understand algebra in high school. Children trying very hard to learn become more and more frustrated and develop emotional problems such as low self-esteem in the face of repeated failure. - See more at: http://www.learningrx.com/learning-disability-tests-for-children-faq.htm#sthash.yBHVAl66.dpuf

Learning disability tests for children: Assessment

Learning disability tests for children determine some of the most frequent signals of learning disabilities in a child. They include: difficulty understanding and following instructions; trouble remembering what someone just said; failure to master reading, spelling, writing, and/or math skills; difficulty distinguishing right from left; difficulty identifying words, or a tendency to reverse letters, words, or numbers; (for example, confusing “25” with “52” or “b” with “d;” lacking coordination in walking, sports, or small activities such as holding a pencil or tying a shoelace; easily losing or misplacing homework, schoolbooks, or other items; and the inability to understand the concept of time. These problems deserve a comprehensive evaluation by an expert who can assess all of the different issues affecting the child. A child and adolescent psychiatrist can help coordinate the evaluation, and work with school professionals and others to have the evaluation and educational testing done to clarify if a learning disability exists. - See more at: http://www.learningrx.com/learning-disability-tests-for-children-faq.htm#sthash.yBHVAl66.dpuf
