Hi,

Every school has a MOE Educational Psychologist attached to them. Has the school arranged for one to observe your kid in school yet?

What type of learning difficulty are you referring to? How old is your child?

Some learning difficulties affect the student's ability to focus long enough to absorb the new information (ADD). Some learning difficulties affect the student's speed at processing new information and reacting to it (SPD). Some learning difficulties affect the student's ability to sit still in a traditional classroom (ADHD). Some learning difficulties affect the student's ability to write (dysgraphia) or do math (dyscalculia). Some learning difficulties affect the student's ability to use language (dyslexia or foreign language students). Some learning difficulties are a lack of one of the senses (blindness, deafness).

Many times the learning difficulties are considered "learning differences" as any of the students with the issues listed above can also be very, very bright -- that is, they have a high IQ, an ability to learn, but have a difficulty in learning at the same speed and in the same way as what is considered a "normal" student. Oftentimes, these students learn better kinesthetically (hands-on work) or visually rather than from books or lectures.
