Does Your Child Have Learning Problems?

Do you feel frustrated whenever your child's teacher assigns homework? Do you think, "Oh no, there goes my evening. There goes my weekend." You will have to sit with your child and provide lots of 1:1 help. You know your child is smart, so why is your child having such a hard time learning? What's wrong?

Are you tempted to blame the school or the teacher? Are you considering options like private school or homeschooling? Are you already trying those options, but you still feel frustrated?

Have you ever wondered if your child has underlying cognitive problems that are the source of the problem? Does your child have attention or memory problems? Does your child have impaired language processing or auditory processing deficits? Trying to get schools to provide psycho-educational testing can take years. Discouragement can set in. If you have hired private tutors you know that tutoring doesn't make the slightest difference in your child's memory, attention and processing. 

Identify the Problems

Neuroplan's Diagnostic Checklist was created by Anna Krueger, a certified speech language pathologist. It will take you about 10 minutes. This is not intended to replace a formal assessment. It is a quick way to cut through all the confusion and get some answers.



  • Signs of poor oral communication
  • Signs of poor listening and attention
  • Signs of language processing disorder and dyslexia
  • Signs of learning disabilities
  • Signs of autism

Use Neuroplan’s checklist to determine why your child is having such a hard time learning. If you are a teacher, get answers about a student. If you are an adult who struggles, try it on yourself! This checklist will help you identify the problems.

  • Baseline Profile

    This section covers the influences that have shaped the person's profile of strengths and weaknesses.
  • For example, enter the name of your child or student. If you are an adult looking for help, enter your own name.
  • Date Format: YYYY slash MM slash DD
  • "Family history" refers to the person's relatives. Go back one or two generations. Think about parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles. Also consider the people in the same generation, such as siblings and cousins.
