We all have different learning styles. Someone with a learning disability has a neurological disorder that affects how he or she learns. Despite normal thinking skills, people with learning disabilities have difficulty reading, writing, spelling, reasoning, recalling or organizing information.
Learning disabilities are life-long and it’s important to learn strategies that encourage strengths in learning and compensate for areas that create difficulty for the learner.
For people with learning disabilities there may be a need to work on:
organizing spoken and written language,
reading comprehension, and
Language Delays and Disorders
Language disorders are difficulties in understanding and/or producing spoken and written language. These difficulties can have a profound impact on children’s academic, social, and emotional development.
A child may be late to talk, have a diagnosed condition that is known to affect communication, or their communication disorder may not be identified until they reach school. We provide assessment and treatment to children whose language problems stem from many causes and vary in severity.
Developmental disabilities are a group of conditions due to impairment in physical, learning, language, or behavior areas. About one in six children in the U.S. have one or more developmental disabilities or other developmental delays (from CDC). This might include cerebral palsy, Autism Spectrum Disorder, or intellectual disability. We provide services to adults and children whose communication abilities are affected by their disability.
