Types of Learning Disabilities We Test For

At KMN Psych, we recognize the complexity and variety of learning disabilities. Many mental health professionals, including the Learning Disabilities Association of America, categorize several disorders as distinct learning disabilities. These include, but are not limited to, the following:

dyslexia san diego


Difficulties in accurate and/or fluent word recognition and poor spelling and decoding abilities characterize this learning disability. It primarily affects reading, where individuals might struggle with letter recognition, phonemic awareness, and the mapping of sounds to letters. Individuals with dyslexia often struggle with reading comprehension and might read at a level lower than expected despite having normal intelligence.



Individuals with dyscalculia experience challenges in understanding numbers and mathematical concepts. This includes difficulty learning to manipulate numbers, perform mathematical calculations, and recall math facts. Dyscalculia can also affect a person's ability to perform tasks involving money management, time management, and spatial reasoning.



Dysgraphia primarily affects a person’s handwriting ability and fine motor skills. It can lead to problems with spelling, poor handwriting, and trouble putting thoughts on paper. This might manifest as inconsistent spacing, poor spatial planning on paper, and struggles with writing within a defined space.

auditory processing disorder

Auditory Processing Disorder

This disorder impacts the ability to analyze or make sense of sounds, especially where there is background noise. Children with auditory processing disorder (APD) may struggle to follow spoken directions or distinguish between similar sounds. They might also have difficulty with reading comprehension and vocabulary, as these skills are often linked to the ability to process auditory information effectively.

language processing disorder

Language Processing Disorder

Closely related to auditory processing disorder, this disability affects the attachment of meaning to sound groups that form words, sentences, and stories. Individuals may have difficulty understanding spoken language, making it hard to follow conversations or instructions. This can also extend to difficulties expressing oneself verbally, affecting academic performance and social interactions.

nonverbal kmn psych

Nonverbal Learning Disabilities

This group of disabilities involves trouble with nonverbal cues, such as facial expressions, body language, and coordination. Children with nonverbal learning disabilities may be physically clumsy and may have trouble interpreting nonverbal signals from others. This can lead to misunderstandings in social situations and difficulty forming peer relationships.

Visual Perceptual/Visual Motor Deficit

A visual perceptual/visual motor deficit affects a person's understanding of information and ability to draw or copy. It might also impact recognition of shapes, the ability to track visual information, and spatial perception. Children with this disorder may struggle with activities that require visual-motor integration, such as handwriting, catching a ball, or buttoning clothes.

autism and adhd testing

Related Disorders:

While not classified strictly as learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are closely related disorders that significantly impact learning and development. ASD affects communication and behavior, leading to difficulties in social interaction and a restricted range of interests. ADHD is characterized by inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity, which hinder academic and social performance.
