Does Your Child Have a Disability?

School can be hard for children. Nobody goes in at kindergarten and automatically hits the books a hard with success. For most kids it will start off a bit bumpy and for others it will stay bumpy. If things continue down that bumpy path it may be a cause for concern. At some point it can be something more than just a kid not wanting to work. Here are some signs that your child can actually have a learning disability.

  • Completely Unorganized – Everyone had that kid in their class. The one that had a desk jam packed with papers and a backpack that was an utter stuffed mess. This isn’t exactly normal. Not if it is consistent. I remember one student having his desk completely packed with junk.
  • Problems Paying Attention – Perhaps you child just sits at his desk during class and just blanks out and spends the whole day zoning out into the corner, lost in thoughts of who knows what. He’ll bounce out of the zone, go home and remember absolutely nothing about his day at school.
  • Problems Reading and Writing – At a certain age, all kids should be able to read pretty well. Being ten and still stuttering on words can be a tall tale sign that something is wrong. Perhaps it’s time to take your kids to the doctor and see what’s up.
  • Problems With Math – Math is a very hard subject. Many kids struggle with these concepts. Yet at some point with a little listening and studying, things should make some sense.
  • Difficulty Remembering – If you child doesn’t seem to be processing anything. If they come back home a blank slate. Something is wrong. They should be at least hearing something in class. It’s common sense.
