Health Tip: Identifying a Learning Disability

How parents can help
(HealthDay News) -- Parents of school-age children may notice symptoms that could signal a learning disability. So what are worried parents to do?
The National Center for Learning Disabilities mentions these suggestions:
Collect your observations as well as documents from school regarding your child's academic progress. Talk to your child's teacher, and ask for his or her observations. Ask your school about alternate methods of teaching and helping your child. Prepare for a formal evaluation, which may include interviews with the child, classroom observation, medical and school history review, testing and collecting information from teachers.
