Any first, second, or third grade student with any of the following would benefit from being tested if:

  • Teacher has requested a parent conference, and you hear Teacher comments like
    • – “student is immature for his/her age.”
    • – “could do better if he/she tried a little harder”
    • – “Fidgets, is rarely still, and is often out of his/her seat.
    • – Behavior is “disruptive” at times, or talks out of turn in class.

Ineffective educational management of students with learning disorders is a major cause of functional illiteracy in adults.

Schools usually only identify Specific Learning Disability students after they have fallen significantly behind their peers in second or even third grade. Less severely affected Specific Learning Disability students may not be identified at all because of the lack of recognition of the need to be evaluated by a school psychologist. SLD is a not a temporary problem. It is a lifelong disability. Once Specific Learning Disability students begin a corrective program, it needs to be continued even when they have reached the appropriate grade level because these students learn less efficiently than their peers and will fall behind again without continued treatment.
