Questions to Ask Pediatricians

Every child can have problems learning from time to time, and parents are often the first to notice. Some learning problems come and go. But if they seem to persist, it’s important for parents to communicate with their child’s teachers and other caregivers about difficulties. Pediatric health care providers are interested in your child’s educational health, too—not just their physical well-being. If you’re concerned about your child’s progress in school, be sure to talk with your child’s health care provider. They can help you figure out if your child’s struggle is suggestive of a learning disability, and they can help you decide if testing is needed.
