Health Tip: Recognizing a Learning Disorder

(HealthDay News) -- Learning a new subject may involve many mistakes. But when they are too frequent and long-lasting, they may be symptoms of a learning disorder, the National Institutes of Health says.

A learning disability isn't a measure of how smart a child is. It's caused by a difference in the brain that's present from birth, or shortly after. This affects how the brain handles information, and may cause problems with reading, writing and math.

The agency says your child should be evaluated for a learning disability if the child has:

  • Difficulty reading or writing.
  • Issues with learning basic math concepts.
  • Difficulty remembering.
  • Trouble following directions.
  • Problems staying organized.
