Learning Disability | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

A complete evaluation is done to determine if a child has a learning disability. The evaluation includes testing, teacher input, parental input, and observing the child.

Tests are done to see if the child's learning problems are due to vision impairments, hearing impairments, allergies, or any other medical issues. A child's mental capacity, school performance, eyesight, hearing, emotional status, and general neurological function may be checked. Often several different types of professionals will assess the child. These may include an audiologist, psychologist, doctor, and a speech and language pathologist.
