Children with Learning Disabilities


For the student with a learning disability, school is difficult.
Parents come to us all the time asking what they can do to help their child. The answer is simple - but not always easy.

  • FIRST have the child checked to see if they have a learning disability.

    Getting this accurate diagnosis of the child's disability is the key to everything else going well.
    We offer our own testing through a learning specialist to first identify why the student is not successful. Once we have identified that there is a processing issue, we can become involved to help parents effectively get the schools to start the Request to Intervene (RTI) process that gives the student a right to free testing within the school. Then a claim for the services they need through an IEP or 504 Plan become successful in school can be made.
    In some cases the schools do inadequate testing or they are unwilling to do all the testing necessary to identify the problem. When this occurs, there is often a right for and Independent Educational Evaluation (IEE). We can also help parents navigate their way through this process.

  • SECOND, the parent needs to work cooperatively with the school to insure their child gets the necessary services to be successful in school.

    Children with Learning Disabilities But sometimes the schools are not responsive to providing the services needed. There can be several reasons for this problem.

  • The school is not recognizing the signs of a learning disability in a student that triggers their CHILD FIND duties;
  • The administration is not understanding the need for the specialized instruction and their obligation to provide that specialized instruction necessary to support the student with the tools necessary to improve the student's performance; or
  • The classroom teacher is not qualified with the specialized teaching skills necessary to be effective as is required by law.

Any of the above scenarios creates conflict. When the parents and schools are locked in a conflict, it often gets in the way of solving the problem and addressing the student's needs.

We are skilled in working cooperatively with the schools to help you get the proper match of services to learning needs while at the same time fostering a positive working relationship between parents, students and the schools.

Because as many as one third of our student population has some form of a learning disability, many students or their parents do not even know the problem exists. For any student, just getting through school is tough. But for a student with an undiagnosed learning disability it is nearly impossible.
