[Self-Test] Could My Child Have a Learning Disability?
As many as half of all children with ADHD also have a learning disability (LD). Find out more about the symptoms in the self-test below.
If your child continues to struggle academically even after treatment for attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD), he or she may be among the 30 to 50 percent of individuals with ADHD who also have a learning disability (LD). The symptoms in this self-test relate primarily to elementary school, which is when LD is most often identified. Complete this test and take the results to an education professional for evaluation.
This self-test is designed to determine whether your child shows symptoms similar to those with learning disabilities, but it is not a diagnostic tool. A trained educational psychologist can make a diagnosis of learning disabilities through clinical evaluation. This self-test is for personal use only.
