The child with specific learning difficulties can be hard to spot. Often, intelligent and articulate it is their own sense of frustration that is frequently the first clue.
'Specific learning difficulties’ (SpLD) is an umbrella term to cover a number of problems: dyslexia (reading and writing), dyscalculia (maths), dyspraxia (co-ordination), dysgraphia (writing).
Some children with specific learning difficulties may exhibit behavioural difficulties, though frequently these diminish when the child receives appropriate help and support with a subsequent growth in confidence and self-esteem.
