AIM Academy

Learn the Signs
Presentation at 2017 Symposium

Clinicians on the Front Lines
As with any medical concern, pediatricians and general practitioners are often the first professionals parents turn to when they
or a child's teacher are concerned about a learning difference.
Dr. Jeffrey L. Black, a physician at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital
for Children in Dallas, spoke to AIM faculty and area educators
in August at the school's Conshohocken campus about the danger of controversial therapies in treating language and learning
disorders and the important role primary care physicians play
in detecting learning differences.
"Primary care physicians, during well-child visits, can be the first
to detect children at risk for learning differences by developmental
surveillance that gives close attention to language, especially when
there is a positive family history," Dr. Black explained.

Recognizing early signs of a SLD can be key in
helping children receive the early educational
intervention they need to experience success.
