TREATMENT

  • Special education is the most common treatment for learning disorders. Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), all U.S. children with learning disorders are entitled to receive special education services for free in public schools.
  • After doing an evaluation to pinpoint where your child is having problems, a team of special educators will create an individualized education program (IEP) for your child that outlines what special services he needs to thrive at school. Special educators will then help your child build on his strengths and teach him ways to compensate for his weaknesses.
