The symptoms of learning disabilities are a diverse set of characteristics which effect achievement and development. A learning disorder often affects a person’s ability to acquire and use academic skills. They aren’t the same as mental or physical disabilities, and don’t reflect a person’s intelligence. Learning disabilities are usually diagnosed in childhood and individuals with a learning disorder often have average to above average intelligence. Although there is no cure for learning disabilities, seeking help from a qualified mental health professional can help individuals learn how to cope and manage their lives to the best of their abilities.

I have extensive experience working with both adults and youth with a variety of learning and physical disabilities. Extra stress can come along with having a disability, and it is important that both parents and children have a safe place to process the extra stress that disabilities can cause on a person, and on the family system as a whole.
