What they say about us
“My daughter was very comfortable with her which was quite important to me to ensure that we got reliable results from the tests. I appreciated the time she took to explain the required test before the sessions commenced and afterwards she also took time to explain the report to me and provided further clarifications to my questions......”
Learning disabilities take many forms and are usually not recognized until the child reaches school age. Too often, students are erroneously labeled as slow witted, insolent or lazy. They are constantly being harassed to work harder by anxious adults concerned about their academic performance.
When the usual tactics of reward and punishment fail, parents and teachers become frustrated but, no one is more frustrated than the students themselves. The most depressing words in the English language has to be, “just try harder” says a student whose disabilities were finally identified in high school. “I was trying but because I wasn’t succeeding nobody believed me.”
Students who have learning disabilities may exhibit a wide range of traits, including problems with reading, comprehension, spoken language, writing or reasoning ability. Symptoms such as uneven and unpredictable test performance, perceptual impairments, motor difficulties, and behaviors such as impulsiveness, low tolerance for frustration, and problems in handling day-to-day social interactions and situations can also indicate an underlying difficulty.
