Common Signs of Learning Disabilities

I wish draw your attention to THIS article that appeared in today's newsreel. I believe it is relevant and important to connect to this report to help us better understand what LD is and is not. LD has NOTHING to do with intelligence. To suggest that people with LD are 'stupid' is uncaring and even rude. Children with LD tend to have the following traits:

1. Slow to speak
2. Poor eye and hand coordination
3. Poor hearing and understanding skills
4. Slow to understand mathematical concepts
5. Slow readers
6. Tires easily
7. Difficulty in recognising space

Early intervention will help the child with LD overcome his difficulties earlier.
