What can cause a learning disability?

Each child is different, their intervention plan should be too!

Learning challenges have very little to do with IQ or intelligence. A learning disability is a result of either a cognitive weakness or progressive sensory issues.

Some outgrow or learn to cope and adapt while struggling silently with all the emotional, behavioral and academic issues, on the other hand, some children may not grow out of it. Researchers have also established a direct connection between certain learning challenges and mental health issues. These children become adults battling depression and anxiety symptoms—that depression and anxiety medications only help mask. Children with visual or auditory issues often do not realize their experiences are abnormal. Early detection and intervention are crucial to ensure proper brain development and help them succeed in life.
