How do I know if I have a learning disability? 

Learning disabilities are usually diagnosed by a licensed professional, often a psychiatrist or a psychologist. The assessment consists of an intake interview, during which the professional takes a comprehensive medical and educational history; and the administration of several tests, usually including instruments to assess your cognitive abilities and your current achievement levels. The professional uses all of this information to determine if a learning disability is present, or if there may be other explanations for the educational difficulties you experience.
