Learning disabilities affect the power to grasp or use spoken or written language, do mathematical calculations, coordinate movements, or direct attention. Though Learning Disabilities occur in very young children, the disabilities aren't usually recognized until the child reaches school age. Children with undiagnosed learning disabilities often struggle academically in school, suffer significant losses of self-esteem, and do not achieve their full potential.
Detecting a learning disability in a child is a complex and multifaceted process. So it is understandable that a child may go some time without getting diagnosed. At DHW, we take a comprehensive approach to understanding each individual’s cognitive pattern of strengths and weaknesses, as well as their unique learning profile to determine if there is a learning disability present. We also work hard to help our clients and their families understand the strategies and resources that work best for their learning styles.
