Abstract

The pediatrician is in a unique position to evaluate the often multidimensional problems of the learning-disabled child. The primary care physician is generally most familiar with the social, economic, medical, and genetic background of the child, as well as having an insight into the patient's family dynamics. When this information is integrated with findings from the medical history and neurodevelopmental assessment, the pediatrician can appreciate problems in their broadest sense and prioritize problems detected by other professionals, such as the psychologist and educator. This report comprehensively reviews elements of the pediatric evaluation, including the medical history, neurodevelopmental assessment, and management plan, for the learning-disabled child.
