Do You or Your Child Possibly Have an Undiagnosed Learning Disability?

Dec 23, 2022 | ADHD Testing, Adults, Children, Strategies

Do you, or possibly your child, struggle with tasks you think should be easy to accomplish?  It may be reading a selection and easily understanding it.  It could be acquiring and using math in school, work, or everyday problem solving.  It could be in constructing a clear, well written essay, note, email or business or school report.  Did your last promotion get you passed over because of your poor communication skills?  Is your child underachieving at school?  Whatever the circumstance, have you ever felt that you aren’t performing everyday tasks at a level you think you should?  Is your child struggling at school?

There are several causes of this, including lifestyle issues and attentional problems.  However, it’s also important to know that undiagnosed learning disabilities are also a potential cause.  The number of high-level professionals in all sectors of business who are dealing with learning disabilities on the job is surprisingly high.  One would think that schools catch every student with a learning disability, but they don’t.  They go on to struggle with work or college without understanding the cause of their struggles.  

This is where the diagnostic team at Start My Wellness can help.  Staffed with neuropsychologists and special educators, we have developed a quick, efficient, and cost-effective solution to screening for learning disabilities.  Rather than spend a thousand dollars or more to search for a solution, Start My Wellness is able to conduct a focused, outcome driven screening battery for learning disabilities in both children and adults which will pinpoint the areas of concern and suggest a next step strategy.  It can be added to our already popular ADHD testing, or can be done as a standalone service.
