A licensed expert should conduct an evaluation if you suspect that your child has a learning disability. Learning problems vary from one student to another but tutoring can have a positive impact on correcting the situation and provide you with tips on what you can do to help them.
There are a number of different learning disabilities, including Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), or Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder(ADHD), dyslexia and autism. Children with these disabilities can learn ways to overcome them.
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are the most common forms of learning disabilities. Symptoms vary but can include disorganization, inattention, and impulsive behavior. ADHD students can't sit still and focus while the ADD students can sit quietly yet their minds will wander. Medications can counteract the effects of it.
Dyslexia can take many forms, affecting writing, reading and math skills. In dyslexia, inputs to the brain are not slowed down as they normally should be, causing an overload condition. Symbols, like letters or numbers, are difficult to comprehend. Symptons of dyslexia include letter/number reversals, spelling difficulties,and illegible writing. All students go through these problems, but if they persist, an evaluation by a licensed professional is needed. This section uses Comic Sans MS as the font, one of the best fonts a dyslexic can use.
Autism affects the child's communication and relationships; the symptoms usually develop before three years of age. Much can be done to help the student improve if it is discovered early. Research continues into the cause of autism but there is a genetic link to this information processing problem. Symptoms can include problems with verbal and nonverbal communications and repeating behavior.
