Testimonials of Change

A specific learning disability may display in a number of different ways. There may be a deficit in auditory learning (memory, auditory discrimination), visual perception, memory, or integration, short or long term memory retrieval, or processing speed issues.

  • Trouble remembering what is heard
  • Slowness in completing homework or classwork
  • Math struggles
