A learning disorder is an information-processing problem that prevents a person from learning a skill and using it effectively. Learning disorders generally affect people of average or above average intelligence. As such, there often appears to be a gap between the individual’s potential and actual achievement. This is why learning disabilities are referred to as “hidden disabilities”: the person looks perfectly “normal” and seems to be an intelligent person, yet may be unable to demonstrate the skill level expected from someone of a similar age, despite intervention or tutoring. Diagnostically, individuals may have a “specific learning disorder” in reading, written expression, and/or math. Contact us to schedule an evaluation.
