Signs Of Learning Disabilities In Children
Parents often have a difficult time recognizing learning problems, sometimes referred to as Children with Learning Disabilities, in their children. Perhaps the onset of the disorder is very gradual and does not have immediate effects. Some children seem to perform well until their educational setting changes such as from grade school to junior high. In other cases, the children may have had certain characteristics, like a short attention span, for as long as parents can remember. This can make a learning problem seem as if it is just part of the child’s personality.
When you begin to have questions or concerns, it is best to test and properly diagnose the problem as quickly as possible. The Windsor Law LLC can provide you with the legal and educational counsel you need to begin the process and move forward.
We also offer a program to consistently monitor your child’s needs and progress, as well as provide many supportive resources for your family. Our attorneys understand your situation and are prepared to help.
