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.
