Learning disorders are characterized by continual difficulty with learning in the areas of reading, oral/written language, and/or mathematics, despite targeted instruction. An evaluation for learning disorders can provide insight regarding your child’s individual learning style, as well as their strengths and weaknesses, and recommended supports.
Did You Know?
Evaluations for learning disorders can be provided by parental request at your child’s school, at no cost to you. However, independent evaluations can also be completed outside of the educational system.
