Too often these days children are misdiagnosed as having learning disabilities when other things are actually the culprit. Here is an article that explains some of the conditions that can mimic or even cause learning disabilities:

Before that, each parent must understand if their child has a real issue with learning and reading. My neighbour's child had a reading difficulty without the parents even knowing it. The parents must be aware of Readiness Reading programs that evaluate their child’s performance and can identify the areas where they are really struggling!

Learning disabilities are a brain operational aberration. This means that the brain assimilates and processes certain kinds of new information and performs operations in unique, unusual ways that often make it difficult to achieve normal learning milestones.

In many cases, there may be a genetic predisposition to the development of learning disabilities. They can also be caused by changes in the brain from social or environmental deprivations, deafness, poor vision, birth trauma, or neurologic injury in utero. Some developmental problems can be corrected or improved by addressing causes such as poor vision, deafness, and environmental factors.

I often wonder if a child just has anxiety or a learning disorder. My ds sometimes does something like a "tick" when they are stressed. However all else seems fine - I'm keeping a close eye on it.
