How serious are output learning disabilities?

Output learning disabilities can range from mild to severe. Children with mild to moderate output learning disabilities are usually identified after beginning school, when they begin to struggle with academic concepts and skills. Early diagnosis allows for interventions that will help children learn to compensate for their condition and enable them to perform better in the classroom.

Individuals with severe learning disabilities are often identified at infancy because they are slow to reach certain developmental milestones. Their condition may affect them throughout life. Early diagnosis gives your child the best chance to overcome obstacles and learn to cope early. Late diagnosis is linked to adult literacy problems and can affect employment and other aspects of daily life.
