A child struggled at school for many years before she was finally diagnosed in her sophomore year. She had found that she had to work much harder than her peers to keep up with class work. She was diagnosed with dyslexia and an auditory processing disorder. However, some educators and psychologists believe that the condition is overdiagnosed and masks other problems where the child is not reaching their parentís expectations. Symptoms of a learning disability include: struggling with homework, losing interest in school, behavioural problems and unexpected failure. These same symptoms may be present if the child is coping with family stress, drug or alcohol abuse, depression or parents with high expectations.
