Learning disabilities affect how a child understands, processes, and responds to new information. Not only do they interfere with school and learning, but they can also contribute to emotional problems. However, having a learning disability doesn't mean that your child can't do well in life.
In order to help your child, it's important to understand the signs and symptoms of a learning disability, identify your child's strengths and weaknesses, and promote self-confidence. By better understanding your child's learning disabilities, you can help him or her succeed in school and in life.
