What the Expert Says:

Check lists are helpful if you have a suspicion.  You know your child best; however, ask your pediatrician to weigh in on the diagnosis as well.  She/he may have some inventories or check lists which can be helpful.

A parent's intuition is always the most reliable indicator of the existence of a learning difference.  If you suspect that your child might have a learning difference -  immediately take action.  Don't wait to see. With early intervention, every child will have the chance to succeed.  Call an educational psychologist and get the child assessed.  The sooner you know, the better off the child will be.  Unfortunately, there is no standard checklists given to teachers in the primary grades.  It would be so beneficial if every teacher had a list of warning signs to look for.  For now go with your intuition.
