Learning Disabilities: The Importance of Obtaining an Official Diagnosis

A diagnosis by a psychologist who is an expert in the field of Learning Disabilities is needed as it would provide an official diagnosis. Such a diagnosis would not only identify learning problems but it would also entitle a student to receive special accommodations – accommodations that could involve:

  • in-school remedial services;
  • a reduced workload;
  • extended time for exams;
  • oral exams for those with written communication difficulties;
  • permission for the older students to use note-takers or record classes.

This assistance would be applicable throughout a student’s academic career and this includes his/her college and university studies as well.
