We know R has one. It he was never dx'd. His mother refused to have him tested and when I was able to get involved he refused to be tested. He has an IEP but no dx to go with it.

My son is not dx'd with a learning disability per se. But, his ID makes learning more difficult, and later than his typical peers. He is not on grade level on anything academic, but is making great strides.

Yes, multiple LD's, in fact.  Diagnoses can really HELP in figuring out how to teach a child.  A lot of people want to avoid a "label," but to me it's no different than if your child has a cough and you go to the doctor to find out if your child has allergies, bronchitis, or some other condition.  Without a diagnosis, people don't REALLY know what they're dealing with!  And I've found the best/only way to truly OVERCOME learning disabilities is to address each of the underlying cognitive deficits that is a problem for the child--whether it is a deficit with working memory, processing speed, executive functioning, etc., in addition to the more academically focused disabilties like dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, etc.

My son older was diagnosed with several LD issues when he was young.  One of the public school admins told us he'd "probably never read well" and she told us "you just need to lower your expectations." SO, we pulled out and started homeschooling.. My son reads fabulously, has excelled in his learning once I put programs into place to address all of his needs, and he is now about to graduate from a large university, Magna Cum Laude!!
