Problems with academics (Learning Disabilities – LD)
Problems with executive functioning or attention (Executive Functioning Disorder (EFD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder – (ADHD)
Individuals with EFD might have challenges with planning, organization, initiation, and monitoring themselves.
People with ADHD might show hyperactive/fidgety behaviors, inattention, distractibility, and/or impulsivity. These behaviors, present for years, can be seen at school, at home, and with peers.
Students with LD have a neurologically-based processing problem that interferes with the ability to master specific learning skills.
Possible learning disabilities can include:
Visual Processing Disorders
Auditory Processing Disorders
Once you identify a potential learning issue, MindWell typical recommends testing (psychoeducational, developmental or neuropsychological) to better understand the underlying cause of the learning problem.
