Early signs of a learning disability

Help with Listen Feature Help with Listen Feature

Children who may have a disability often exhibit signs that their development is not typical at a very early age. The presence of significant delays in specific areas of development, when other skills are age appropriate, could indicate that a child has a learning disability. This resource page at the Learning Disabilities Association of America will connect you with helpful resources to help you understand the early signs of learning disabilities, early assessments, and ways to help children.
