Managing Learning Disabilities

Mental Health Tips from William James College Faculty: Managing Learning Disabilities by Bob Lichtenstein, PhD.

Tips for Managing Learning Disability:

  • Seek out your child’s teacher, guidance counselor, special education specialist, or school psychologist if you are concerned about your child’s learning.
  • You may formally request an evaluation for your child.
  • Educational psychologists, child psychologists, and educational advocates can provide you with an outside second opinion.
  • Children and adults with learning disabilities can struggle with shame and lower self-confidence. Parental reassurance can be helpful as can outside counseling.
