Learning Disabilities – Is School Helping or Hurting Children?By
In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Mark Banschick, M.D., we discuss learning disabilities in children and help identify signs that a child may be in trouble. If you suspect your child is having difficulty in school due to the stress of divorce or a learning disability, it’s important to get them tested and identify the problem as soon as possible.
Getting your child into a set routine is a great way to balance their life. Good sleeping, eating, and study habits are critical to your child’s well-being, and Dr. Banschick provides an example of what this looks like.
We also identify common learning disabilities and provide options for treatment, including prescribed medication. 5% of children in school today are dealing with ADHD. If you suspect that your child may be exhibiting signs of ADD, ADHD, or a learning disability, know that you’re not alone–evaluation and help are available. Be proactive in getting help for your child.
