While there is no cure for learning disabilities, therapy may benefit some children depending on the severity of the learning disability.
A mental health professional may recommend any of the following types of therapy after evaluating your child:
Speech therapy helps children with learning disabilities become better communicators. Therefore, your child will find it easier to process information and express themselves. A specialist will assess the child's language-based skill areas (including oral language, reading, memory, writing, and attention) and help them improve weak areas.
Occupational therapy helps children with learning disabilities improve their motor skills (especially writing). An occupational therapist works closely with the child to solve underlying motor problems that are affecting their learning ability. Therefore, your child will find it easier to participate in daily activities, including learning, playing, and self-care.
Alternative/complementary therapy (like art, music, and dance) can also help with learning disabilities. Experts and parents set goals to see whether the child is improving or responding to the selected mode of support or intervention. However, there is no scientific evidence that supports alternative/complementary therapy.
