About Attention Disorders (ADHD) & related Learning Difficulties
ADHD learning difficulties are a common trait in children who suffer from ADHD. These learning difficulties can make school very challenging for children. They may have difficulty following instructions, completing tasks and paying attention in class. Without proper support, they may suffer academically and have difficulties catching up.
Difficulties with attention and working memory (also known as executive functioning difficulties) will commonly co-exist with both Specific Learning Difficulties in Reading, Writing & Mathematics (Dyslexia, Dysgraphia and Dyscalculia) as well as other disabilities such as Autism Spectrum Disorders, Developmental Language Disorders and Hearing Impairment.
Language & Learning can provide ADHD learning support for children by using proven strategies to assist them with their ADHD learning difficulties. Contact us today to find out how we can help your child.
