Is your child struggling with reading, writing or math?

When a child’s ability to read, do math or organize their thoughts in writing is well below similar age peers, and the issue is not caused by causes such as an intellectual developmental disorder or lack of instruction, then the child may have a Specific Learning Disability. We can only identify a Specific Learning Disability through testing.

Children who have Dyslexia (reading disability), Dyscalculia (math disability), and Dysgraphia (a disability in written expression) learn differently. They may need individualized and multisensory approaches in order to understand concepts and improve skills.

If you notice your child struggling, start by talking with their teacher. Testing through the school district or privately will be beneficial, so services can start as soon as possible.

Miriam Learning Center offers diagnostic testing, as well as tutoring services that provide your child with the support needed for success.
