How do I know if I have a learning disability or ADHD?
Most people have difficulty concentrating, or struggle with learning material for certain subjects at some point in school. It can be affected by life stressors, anxiety, worry, substance use, or even poor sleep habits, and is usually temporary. However, someone with an LD/ADHD experiences ongoing and significant difficulty that negatively affects their ability to do well in school, at work, and in family/peer relationships.
Wondering about an LD/ADHD is a question that commonly occurs to students. Because there often are other explanations for students’ academic struggles, thorough psychological testing is required to determine if your struggles are most likely the result of a learning disorder.
