Children can experience Learning Disabilities in reading, math, or written language. Children with attention, speech and language, or other processing issues may also struggle with learning. A learning disability or disorder is diagnosed when a child’s academic achievement is substantially below that expected for age, schooling, and level of intelligence. Approximately 5% of students in public schools in the United States are identified as having a learning disorder.
Early detection and intervention is so important to prevent children becoming frustrated with school. UCCF offers comprehensive evaluations for children with attention and learning problems. UCLL offers evaluations for children with suspected speech and language difficulties which may also impact learning.
UCCF’s team of highly trained clinicians along with our educational specialist are here to help your family understand your child’s learning profile and how best to support him or her at home and at school.
