Learning Disorders in Children

Doctors at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone diagnose learning disorders and provide support to children in preschool and elementary, middle, and high school. Our neuropsychologists consider a variety of factors that can affect learning skills—including brain development, the learning environment, and medical or psychiatric conditions, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder—before making a diagnosis and recommending treatments that suit a child’s needs.

Given the lifelong nature of learning disorders, our doctors also diagnose and support young adults with these conditions.
