Some Types of Learning Disabilities
Some types of learning disabilities may display with anxiety (about schoolwork, going to school, homework, etc.) and intense frustration about academic activities.
Here is the continuation of the story of Sarah, a 3rd grader displaying these symptoms. The story began here, and we'll pick up the rest of the story now where the parents got the results back from her aptitude tests.
5 Months Later....
"It's now February and Sarah's anxiety is a thing of the past.
Her school conference was last week and her teacher (who has 21 years+ teaching experience!) said simply WOW! Her teacher handed me Sarah's results from her STAR reading level assessment - her reading level has jumped to a 6.6 - this is the equivalent of a sixth grader in their sixth month of school - WOW! "
Her teacher shared with me that she has seen Sarah's work speed pick up and her accuracy increase greatly in the last two months. Her math skills are now at a level where they are considering moving her up a math level next year.
Lisa is so positive, kind and patient when she works with Sarah, she has been a pleasure to get to know. I give Lisa my highest personal and professional recommendation - she's the best!"
