Children with specific learning disability may appear normal or developing on par with peers. Signs and red flags occur when they are placed in a formal learning environment. It is important for parents to seek feedback from school or teachers to know if your child is facing specific challenges while in school. With their feedback, parents can seek for appropriate therapy or intervention to support your child’s learning.

It is important for caregivers and parents to take precautions to ensure a healthy developmental for their child. Therefore, it is extremely important for parents to take care of both their mental and physical health during and after birth of their child to reduce the risk of their child’s health being affected.
