How are output learning disabilities diagnosed?

Children who perform below grade level expectations in language development and motor skills may need to be evaluated for learning disabilities. A team of professionals including special education specialists and healthcare practitioners may be involved. They will conduct tests to rule out vision and hearing impairments and physical disorders.

Output learning disabilities are diagnosed with a series of intelligence tests and academic tests in reading, writing, and math. These are often conducted upon parental request.

Early diagnosis can help prevent behavioral and emotional problems that can be associated with learning disorders. Untreated LD affects education, is associated with increased high school dropout rates, and can result in adult literacy problems.
