What are Complex Learning Disabilities?
OPTIONS recognizes the combined effects of learning disabilities (LD), Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), language-based processing issues, executive function issues, and the social and psychological implications of struggling to find success in an academic environment.
OPTIONS offers direct interventions for students with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Austism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Communication Disorders, Auditory Processing Disorders, Processing and Memory Deficits, nonverbal learning disabilities, and anxiety disorders. We also provide these for students with Specific Learning Disability, which is defined as a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or in using language,* spoken or written, that may manifest itself in an imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell, or to do mathematical calculations, including conditions such as perceptual disabilities, brain injury, minimal brain dysfunction, dyslexia, and developmental aphasia.
OPTIONS also provides interventions requiring behavioral and emotional support as it relates to academic barries.
