I am just in the begining stages of knowing that my son has some sort of LD, but don't know where to begin. We went to the psychologist thru our HMO and it was so traumatic that I swore we would do no more until we researched it throughly. My son is 12 years old and extremely bright, but has difficulty in focusing, fidgets, and has trouble understanding concepts when presented in the normal manor. Has anyone ever heard of the Learning Spot at Loma Linda University, Ca.? They have such a good name for most medical problems, but haven't really heard about the clinic other than when I called to inquire for information. We live in the So. Calif area and would appreciate any guidance.
Where are you in southern california? I have not heard of the Learning Spot at Loma Linda. I have head good things about Regina Richard's Big Springs School in Riverside and Stowell Learning Center in Diamond Bar in Los Angeles County. I live in the south orange county area but it sounds like you live in Riverside County.
Some of the symptoms you are describing are indicative of ADHD. Daniel Amen has a clinic in Newport Beach for people who have ADD. Perhaps you might check that out as well.
