Recognize the Issue
MindWell describes learning disorders as falling into two major categories:
- Problems with academics (Learning Disabilities – LD)
- Problems with executive functioning or attention (Executive Functioning Disorder (EFD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder – (ADHD)
Individuals with EFD might have challenges with planning, organization, initiation, and monitoring themselves.
People with ADHD might show hyperactive/fidgety behaviors, inattention, distractibility, and/or impulsivity. These behaviors, present for years, can be seen at school, at home, and with peers.
Students with LD have a neurologically-based processing problem that interferes with the ability to master specific learning skills. Contact us today to schedule a consult to talk about executive functioning and ADHD.
