Are You Struggling With Learning Disabilities?

Home » Areas of Specialty » Learning Disabilities

Learning disabilities, such as Dyslexia, visual or auditory processing disorder, or Dyscalculia, can lead to difficulties for children. Early intervention for learning disabilities is most effective. If children don’t get help, they may become frustrated in school and isolated from peers, leading to other mental health concerns.

Available Treatment Options

If a child qualifies for special education services, they and their family will work with a specialist to establish an Individualized Education Program (IEP). This plan allows children accommodations that help them learn best according to their needs and abilities.

Mental health professionals can help children with learning disabilities process their emotions related to their situation. This processing may include anger, frustration, confusion, or anxiety. Therapists use a range of tools to assist children in processing emotions, including play, art, and family therapies.
