It is very important to detect learning and reading disabilities as early as possible. About 20 percent of the population most likely has reading disabilities, yet only about 4 percent of young children receive special education for reading disabilities (Shaywitz, 2003). According to LD online (2010), the world’s leading website on learning disabilities and ADHD, this epidemic of people going through life undiagnosed is referred to as the “hidden handicap”. The article explains how this “hidden handicap” negatively affects its victims when it states, “The resulting problems can lead to poor self-esteem, failure to thrive in school, and difficulty in the workplace” (link). Therefore, it must be a priority to keenly aware parents of students who may be suffering with a reading disability and to ensure that these students receive the support they need to foster the best learning environment for their academic success.
