COVID-19: We are pleased to announce that we are integrating the use of telehealth as part of our assessments. This option is being utilized as clinically appropriate. If you are interested to learn more, please contact our office and we will work with you to assess all of your options. 

It is not uncommon for children to experience difficulties in school from time to time. When you notice that your child has been putting forth significant effort, but continues to struggle with certain skills, it may be a sign of a learning disability. Learning disabilities are often diagnosed when an individual's academic or functional skills (reading, writing, spelling, speaking, listening, mathematics) are below the expected ranges based on their intellectual ability.
