Does SPD prevent a child from learning?
by Rhianna Burns
my son is aware he is struggling and is 12. the school says that on a daily basis he is holding his finger in his nose and when he is trying to think he switches his finger and that this is a strong indicator that he has a mental handicap. he was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 6 and we know he has some trouble learning and behind in school not improving at the rate he needs to be.said they wrote down how many times he wore his shirt backward and he even scratched at his bottom and thinks its funny or does not care. because of that they think he is an able to learn and are wanting to move him into the handicapped classroom and redirect his education not for a high school diploma but to be able to function in the real world. I know he struggles but this is a complete shock to me...Would this be signs of SPD? Are kids with SDP unable to learn?
