Learning Disability

What is a Language- Based Learning Disability?

Language- Based Learning Disabilities (LLD) refer to significant difficulties in the acquisition and use of listening, speaking, reading, spelling, writing and reasoning skills. There is a significant discrepancy between a child’s potential for learning and his/her achievement. Children with LLD have difficulties learning in the traditional way at the accepted rate for their age group. As children with LLD do not process stimuli and learn in the usual way, they will benefit from individualized learning and instructional strategies.

How could we help?

Speech-language pathologists play an important role in identifying a child’s learning strengths and weaknesses. Based on our findings we will develop instructional, learning remedial strategies to improve language, reading, writing, and cognitive-communication skills.

Our speech-language pathologists also develop creative ways to improve motivation, attention and participation in various therapy tasks.
