We have to also remember that even the brightest children sometimes have some learning difficulties. So if it's not obvious, here's some of the things to look for if you suspect your child might have some struggle with aspects of learning. First of all, sometimes children can read, but they have trouble with decoding. Sometimes your child reads beautifully, but they have difficulty with comprehension and understanding the main idea or concepts that they're reading. Or, we can consider math, where a child who can solve even the most complex math problems, but they work very slowly, and sometimes they may miscalculate or make careless errors. There are other types of learning disabilities other than reading and math. For instance, disorders of written expression. Sometimes children have a disconnect between their ability to share their creative ideas verbally and get them down on paper. If you see any discrepancies in your child's potential and their performance and some subtle difficulties in the areas of reading, math or writing, please contact your teacher. And sit down and have a meeting and openly discuss your concerns. If it is determined that there are some discrepancies in your child's performance and their potential, contact your child's school psychologist or guidance counselor, and let them guide you through the necessary steps to have your child evaluated or tested. It's only through the proper evaluation and thorough and comprehension assessment of your child's abilities can we determine if your child has a learning disability. These are just a few of the steps to take to determine if your child has a learning disability.

Learning Disability in Higher Education and the Professor Student Relationship The professor-student relationship in higher education may be one of mentorship, trust, and academia. In order to strive for this valuable relationship, we must adjust to the diverse population of students in higher education, particularly those with learning disabilities. A certain understanding of capability and confidence from both parties is needed in order to create an inclusive environment for prospering professor-student relationships. It’s time for students to advocate with a plan and for professors to listen with purpose. Altering how we take action will motivate professor-student relationships that will in turn stimulate growth within higher education. A native of the coastal town of Montara, California, Lexie Garrity is a junior at Vanderbilt University. She divides her time between her studies in premed as a Medicine, Health and Society Major; her office as club co-president of the Disabilities Awareness Partnership (DAP); the Vanderbilt Club Soccer Team; her membership in Pi Beta Phi; as well as other work, and internships. Lexie is honored to talk about learning disabilities in the context of improving student-professor communication. Additionally, she hopes to motivate others who have been diagnosed with a disability to pursue their educational and professional dreams. Lexie knows she would not have achieved what she has to this day without her diagnosis in her senior year of high school, and the subsequent support of professors, family, and friends.

Follow these steps to identify how your child might be struggling. Step 1: Note delayed development Notice delays in milestones. A long wait for your child's first words or first steps can indicate a problem. Step 2: Document patterns Document patterns of inattentiveness, carelessness, and slow responses. Avoiding mental challenges may be symptomatic of a larger problem. Step 3: Note problems with instructions Watch for problems following instructions. A learning-disabled child will have trouble remembering spoken or written instructions and retaining skills and facts. Tip Some psychotropic drugs may improve attention and focus, and limit hyperactivity; consult your pediatrician. Step 4: Watch for impaired memory and processing Notice if your child misreads information or transposes number, letter, or story sequences. Step 5: Be aware of physical problems Watch to see if your child has poor balance, has trouble running and jumping, or struggles with handling small objects. Step 6: Notice temper and behavior Don't ignore your child's temper. Some learning-disabled children are prone to behavioral problems. Tip Encourage your child to interact socially, and reinforce their strengths. Step 7: Keep abreast with help Be aware of changing symptoms as your child progresses through school. Talk to your doctor, who can refer you to a specialist. Did You Know? Up to 10 ten percent of U.S. children under age 18 have some type of learning disability.

► Need help with your Dyslexia? Get help here - https://betterhelp.com/authenticmentalhealth -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dyslexia is very common, affecting 20 percent of the population. Dyslexia represents 80– 90 percent of all those with learning disabilities. Reading is complex. It requires our brains to connect letters to sounds, put those sounds in the right order, and pull the words together into sentences and paragraphs we can read and understand. People with dyslexia have trouble matching the letters they see on the page with the sounds those letters and combinations of letters make. Children and adults with dyslexia struggle to read fluently, spell words correctly and learn a second language, among other challenges. But these difficulties have no connection to their overall intelligence. While people with dyslexia are slow readers, they often very fast and creative thinkers! Do you think you have dyslexia? 0. Do you confuse visually similar words such as cat and cot? 0. Do you lose your place or miss out lines when reading? 0. Do you have trouble telling left from right? 0. Do you get confused when given several instructions at once? 0. Do you find it difficult to find the right word to say? 0. Do you find it difficult to read out loud? Dyslexia can’t be “cured” – it is a lifelong condition HOWEVER with the right support dyslexic individuals can become highly successful students and adults. ► Need help with your Mental Health?

http://www.AboutADHDStLouis.com 314-984-8412 Learning Disabilities St. Louis - What is a Learning Disability? Neurotherapy & Neurofeedback Adults and Children with Learning Disabilities and ADHD: What is the Definition of a Learning Disability? What is Sensory Integration Dysfunction Disorder? Is ADHD a Learning Disability? Some of the more common questions parents ask Dr. Collins are related to what is the definition of learning disability? Does my child have a learning disability or why does he have behavioral issues? What can be done to help my child? Working with a professional to obtain testing for learning disabilities, brain mapping, QEEG or an academic assessment will help the parent understand if there are issues with how the child's brain functions or if there are learning disabilities present. The parent can then make an informed decision on how to move forward and help their child. Approximately 30 percent of all children have some form of learning disability. Learning disabilities are a complex set of problems that are sometimes difficult to diagnose because they only happen occasionally at first but compound over time. Some adults and children with learning disabilities have brains which do not process information in an efficient manner. Typically learning disabilities, if not caught early, will create sizeable problems for children in school beginning around age five. Then the learning disabilities could start to manifest into behavioral issues in children as well. Approximately 85 percent of children with learning disabilities have difficulty reading, speaking, writing and/or listening. Many children with learning disabilities don't remember things well, which means learning math, science and other subjects in school may be harder for them than other children. About 33 percent of children with disabilities also have ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). It then becomes a problem with multiple complexities. There is no standard definition for learning disabilities; however, many times the learning disability might show that there is a problem called dyslexia; which means it takes the child more time than the average child to read, spell and comprehend. Sometimes the learning disability may be associated with dyscalculia; difficulty with math problems, using math to get to solutions, and problems with sequencing or timeframe management. At other times the child may have a problem with dysgraphia; writing, being able to write and think at the same time, unfinished words or sentences. These learning disabilities can be made more complex if there is also a sensory disorder involved -- such as sensory integration dysfunction disorder or sensory integration processing disorder. Many times children with disabilities also have problems with the integration of sensory information. For example: the child might say that lights are too bright, sounds are too loud, clothing tags itch or certain foods feel funny in their mouth. The child may have balance issues or be "clumsy" and sometimes will experience motion sickness when in a car or bus. The good news is that there are therapies that address areas where the human brain has problems. These brain exercises or neurofeedback therapy are much like physical exercises, which enhance the way the mind works and helps children with learning disabilities, who are also struggling with school or social situations.

http://www.LearningDisabilitiesStLouis.com 314-984-8412 The Human Brain: What is brain mapping or qEEG testing? How can it help adults and children with learning disabilities or ADHD? Some of the more common questions parents ask Dr. Collins are related to testing for learning disabilities. What is brain mapping or QEEG assessment? How can it help people with learning disabilities or ADHD? According to Dr. Collins, brain mapping or QEEG is a measurement of the human brain and its electrical activity. To get this information, a mesh cap with 19-21 sensors is placed on the head. By means of digital computer technology, brain functions are recorded while the person uses different parts of the brain. For example, at first the person will sit with their eyes open for a short time, then with their eyes closed, next they will read an article and finally they will work through simple mathematical tasks. This mind map presents a view of each brainwave frequency and the average level of activity in each frequency. Brainwave frequencies are different depending on whether the person is sleeping, relaxing or working. The brain map is then compared to a database of people similar in age and gender to the client in order to determine where the human brain activity is too high or too low. This information helps to determine the underlying deficiencies in the brain that may be contributing to the learning disability or ADHD symptoms. The good news is that neurofeedback therapy can enhance the way the mind works and helps people who are having difficulties in school, work or social situations. If you or someone you know is struggling with children with learning disabilities, children with ADHD or ADD symptoms, sensory integration dysfunction disorder, or any type of child discipline issues, then be sure to check out our additional videos.

http://www.LearningDisabilitiesStLouis.com 314-984-8412 Dr. Collins is a board-certified neurotherapist and expert at solving kid's problems typically related to children with learning disabilities or dealing with adults with learning disabilities. Dr. Collins is also successful handling common challenges related to children with ADHD or ADD symptoms, sensory integration dysfunction disorder, and he works to create a parent support system for dealing with child discipline issues. Some of the more common questions parents ask Dr. Collins are related to the expected results from neurotherapy or neurofeedback therapy when treating children with disabilities. What changes can a family expect when using neurofeedback therapy? How quickly will children with learning disabilities change from neurotherapy? Understanding the expected results up-front will help you determine the type of treatment plan you choose for your child. Typically each child is different and will respond differently to various treatments, but you will at least understand the time and money involved in the process. Dr. Collins says that asking for results is wise when considering neurotherapy or neurofeedback therapy for children with learning disabilities. Typically families see the child's "symptoms" subside within 20 to 40 sessions of neurotherapy or neurofeedback therapy, with treatments scheduled 1 to 2 times per week. Those "symptoms" could include temper tantrums, problems with homework, the ability to study or work independently, socialization issues, gaining and retaining friendships, integration of sensory information or difficulties responding to an adult's requests in a reasonable manner. The good news is that neurotherapy or neurofeedback therapy can create long lasting effects and help the family start to rebuild relationships. Most people are surprised with the positive results when the human brain is trained to work more efficiently. The brain exercises involved in neurotherapy or neurofeedback therapy are much like physical exercises, which enhance the way the mind works and helps children with learning disabilities, who are also struggling in school and social situations.

Lee Swanson, Ph.D., holds an endowed chair and the rank of Distinguished Professor in Educational Psychology/Special Education at the University of California at Riverside. His prime research interests are in the area of intelligence, memory and mathematics reading and dynamic assessment as they apply to children with learning disabilities. Dr. Swanson reviewed some of his meta-analysis work related to answering six questions: 1. Should cognition be added to the definition of learning disabilities? 2. What standard should be set to determine if treatment outcomes are meaningful? 3. Is IQ really irrelevant to treatment outcomes? 4. What are we really getting in terms of outcomes related to Dynamic Testing and Response to Intervention? 5. Is phonological awareness really that important? 6. Are adult dyslexics a lot like kids in processing difficulties? The Ruth Harris Professorship in Dyslexia Studies was created from a gift made by Ruth and Louis Harris to the VCU School of Education in 2007. The fund seeks to enhance the work in the field of language learning and reading disabilities with a focus on dyslexia.

There is an increasing number of children who suffer from learning issues and disabilities due to the non-friendly, stressful and extremely competitive learning environment in the educational system starting from early childhood. It is not easy to identify these problems by schools and parents and therefore, it may become too late to help the child. Progressive Education has been busy installing appropriate measures to not only identify and remain a passive informer, but to also assist and support any child who is not performing, nor benefiting in the learning system. This identification process requires professional testing which we provide in-house. Thereafter, for further help the child can be taken to professional councilors by the parents. This will reduce, if not eliminate the anger and frustration some parents may develop towards their children who are failing to achieve and instead continue to love and support them. Our belief is in an inclusive, professional and just approach with children; we try to work on all possible aspects which will enhance cooperation and support for them in society, even if they find them selves differently abled to others.

Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the Richmond Public Library. Dr. Linda Siegel's latest research in Understanding Dyslexia and Other Learning Disabilities addresses how our educational system has failed to identify many children with learning disabilities and calls for the adoption of straightforward diagnostic techniques so that treatment options can be implemented at a young age. Many children who struggle with learning become discouraged in the classroom and isolated from their peers. Many adults whose learning disabilities were not recognized in school suffer from deep feelings of inadequacy that often prevent them from developing close relationships, finding rewarding employment, or living happily. In this talk, Linda Siegel challenges the use of complex and time-consuming testing that is currently used to diagnose learning disabilities. In their place, she outlines simple and pragmatic techniques for testing for disabilities in reading, mathematics, spelling, and writing. Linda_headshot Dr. Siegel gives first-hand accounts of people living with learning disabilities, case studies from literature, and profiles of highly accomplished individuals who have achieved success despite their learning disabilities. Their stories encourage people with learning challenges and those who support them to recognize and nurture each person's special talents. Understanding Dyslexia and Other Learning Disabilities implores families, teachers, and other educational professionals to provide resources and services for all those struggling with learning so that no more lives are compromised. Speaker Bio: Linda Siegel is the Dorothy Lam Chair in Special Education at the University of British Columbia. Linda Siegel is an eminent psychologist and educator and is an internationally respected authority on reading and learning disabilities.

CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – Studying can be a challenging task, especially for students with learning disabilities. Alexis Avila, Founder of Prepped & Polished, Tutoring and Test Preparation joins us with 7 study tips to help students. 7 Study Tips for Students with Learning Disabilities 1. For ADHD Inattentive Type Pitfalls: Difficulty Paying Attention, Trouble with Multi-Step Tasks Strategies: Break your essays into small chunks. For SAT and ACT essays first spend several minutes brainstorming examples and outlining each paragraph BEFORE actually writing the essay. 2. For ADHD Hyperactive Type Pitfalls: Impulse Control Strategies: Write out all your math steps on paper before rushing directly to those confusing multiple answer choices. 3. Unmotivated, Low-Energy Type Pitfalls: Ambivalent Strategies: Don’t enroll in large classes. Small class sizes are more stimulating and engaging. Bonus Tip: Low on energy and need an energy boost during a test? Eat dark chocolate before or during your test to get the energy burst without the crash! 4. Executive Function Disorder Type Pitfalls: Difficulties with Time Management and Organization Strategies: Become an early riser. Develop an early morning routine by waking up early and doing homework exercises each Saturday two to three months BEFORE your SAT or ACT test. 5. Non-Verbal Learning Disorder Type Pitfalls: Drawing Inferences, Difficulty with Word Problems Strategies: Avoid Careless mistakes, Underline! Underlining key words in math problems will force you to read questions carefully and know EXACTLY what to look for. 6. Anxious Student Type Pitfalls: Catostrophizing Strategies: Practice tests bolster confidence. Take practice tests under timed conditions on Saturday mornings to mimic test day environment. 7. Reading/Language-Based Learning Disorder Type Pitfalls: Trouble with Working Memory Strategies: On long reading passages, mark up the passage, answer specific questions as you read, and answer general questions last.
