We know that being a parent of a child with any form of learning difficulty can be confusing, frightening and even alienating.

But discovering that your child has 'difficulties with learning' – and not knowing why – can be equally alarming. Either way, you don’t need to feel alone. At the Salvesen Mindroom Centre, we’re committed to providing information, advice and support – every step of the way.

Of course, you may have visited our website because you have a learning difficulty yourself. Or because as a teacher or a health professional, you need more information. This section provides some of the essentials, starting with an explanation of what exactly are 'learning difficulties' and how to identify them.
