LEARNING DISABILITIES from AAP website
If your child is trying his or her best to learn certain skills, but is not able to keep up with their peers, it's important to find out why. There can be many reasons. If your child has a learning disability the sooner you know the sooner you can get help. Learning disabilities describe a range of learning problems with the way the brain gets, uses, stores, and sends out information. Children with learning disabilities may have trouble with one or more of the following skills: reading, writing, listening, speaking, reasoning, and math.
The causes of learning disabilities are not always known. Most children who have problems learning can reach their goals by developing different ways of learning. Love and support from parents, friends, and teachers, as well as the right medical care are important ways to help your child. Remember if you have concerns about your child's learning, talk with your pediatrician.
