What is a Specific Learning Disorder (SLD)?

Specific learning disorders are neurodevelopmental disorders that are typically diagnosed in early school-aged children, although may not be recognized until adulthood. They are characterised by a persistent impairment in at least one of three major areas: reading, written expression, and/or math (DSM V, 2013).

ONLY a psychologist can diagnose a SLD.
