We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of neurodevelopmental disorders that cause children to experience learning difficulties. The neurodevelopmental disorders in which we specialize include language disorders, reading disorders, writing disorders, math disorders, and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorders.  The term “learning disabilities” is generally used within the education system to describe the neurodevelopmental disorders that we diagnose and treat.

A child who is experiencing learning difficulties often has a neurodevelopmental disorder that negatively affects one or more of the basic cognitive processes involved in learning.  Such a child may have difficulty reading, listening, thinking, speaking, writing, spelling or doing math calculations. Dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyscalculia are all examples of relatively common learning disabilities that often go undiagnosed and untreated.

If you would like to explore the possibility of having your child evaluated by Dr. Smith or if you know that you want to do so, your next step should be to schedule a free phone consultation with Dr. Smith.  You will find more information about scheduling a free phone consultation here.
