Are you feeling tired, overwhelmed or managing a lot right now? Are you concerned that your child is experiencing worry or anxiety as they adjust to a return to 'normal' after two years of online and/or interrupted learning? Does your child experience strong emotional reactions? Do you ever receive phone calls from your child's school expressing concern, or has your family doctor suggested that you and/or your child may benefit from counseling? It is my intention to offer a space that feels good to talk out difficulties, explore resources that may be helpful, and to allow for healing in a manner that suits you/your child best.

Many people come to therapy wondering “what is wrong with me”? It is my view that the real question is "what has happened in your life that has impacted your beliefs about yourself and your ability to cope with stressful life events"? You may notice that you seem to automatically react to situations in a way that you don't necessarily choose and question if you will ever be able to change. If you have experienced highly stressful and/or traumatic events then you will benefit from a therapeutic approach that mindfully explores your personal experiences and strengthens your resiliency to respond rather than react.

Education and Learning Disabilities Counsellors

How effective is treatment for learning disabilities?

When initiated early and tailored to a child’s specific needs, learning disability treatment can be quite effective at helping a child cope with their disability, though its exact efficacy may depend on the severity of symptoms and whether comorbid disorders exist. Less is known about treatment initiated in adulthood, but it is certainly possible that an adult with a learning disability will see some improvement—or at the very least, identify workarounds and accommodations that could make symptoms less burdensome in day-to-day life.

When should someone seek treatment for learning disabilities?

It’s best to seek treatment as early as possible. Because learning disabilities often go unnoticed until a child starts school, or even until they’re a few years along, regular check-ins with teachers and doctors can help parents determine whether children are meeting milestones and keeping up with peers or whether an evaluation for learning disabilities may be warranted. And although earlier is always better, it’s never too late to be evaluated for learning disabilities and to seek treatment.

What happens if learning disabilities are left untreated?

Undiagnosed and untreated learning disabilities can be a source of significant frustration and shame for a child, who may feel that their challenges stem from a lack of intelligence or willpower. Such feelings can trigger low self-esteem, depression, or anxiety, which may push a child toward risky behaviors, including substance use. In adulthood, untreated learning disabilities can interfere with career success, and lingering feelings of self-doubt and shame can negatively affect someone’s mental health.

Are there medications for learning disabilities?

Currently, there are no medications designed to treat specific learning disabilities such as dysgraphia or dyscalculia. However, someone with a learning disability may be prescribed medication for a comorbid condition, such as anxiety, depression, or ADHD, which may have positive downstream effects on their learning disability; for example, a child with both ADHD and dyslexia may find that they’re better able to focus on their reading exercises after being prescribed a stimulant medication.
