What to do if you suspect your child has a learning disability

 

  • ​Gather and review all previous standardized test results, report cards, progress reports, and written teacher comments.  Include records of your own observations of your child's development at different stages as well as any major life changes.
  • Consult with your child's teacher and express your concerns.  Ask the teacher to share their observations of your chid's academic performance and peer interaction.  Working with your child's teacher, come up with strategies to try both at school and in the home to help support your child's learning and behavior needs.  
  • Visit your child's pediatrician, ask for a hearing, vision, or any other necessary testing.
  • If after giving some time for the new classroom strategies to take affect, and both you and the classroom teacher feel new interventions may be needed, ask to hold a Student Study Team (SST) meeting to further pinpoint specific areas of academic and behavioral concerns.  Participants in these meetings can include your child's teacher, Education Specialist, School Psychologist, Speech and Language, and School Based Resource Teacher, among others, who will work to create other intervention strategies or refer your child for special education evaluation testing.
  • Finally, keep the lines of communication open!
