What Are the Advantages of Learning Disability Testing in New Jersey?

If you’ve noticed that your child is finding school a challenge, or still has difficulty completing tasks which others of their age have mastered years ago, it could be the case that they are suffering from some form of learning disability. A learning disability need not be a reflection of intelligence (many children with a diagnosed learning disability are of average or even high intelligence), rather, it may relate to difficulty with one or more areas of learning.

A Learning Disability Evaluation Covers a Wide Range of Conditions

Learning disabilities need not be wide-ranging. Some, such as dyscalculia, are confined to one branch of learning (in this case, numbers and math work). Other disabilities permeate into a number of different areas – dyslexia, for example, can have physical symptoms (clumsiness, difficulties with fine motor movement or issues with organizing tasks) as well as more widely recognized symptoms relating to reading and writing difficulties. A learning disability assessment can differentiate between a variety of conditions, enabling targeted assistance to be sought that offers the best chance of success.
