You should determine whether not getting "A" or "B" grades is because of a learning disability. There are only five modes of communication that can lead to a disability; they are auditory, visual, verbal, nonverbal, and tactical communication. A child may have a deficiency in one or more of these modalities. Learning disabilities should also be understood in terms of life skills and not just school skills
How to Establish That a Child Has a Learning Disability
This is established by appropriate testing from an expert (whose title is Neuropsychologist), and thereafter produces a report so that an appropriate and individualized educational program can be crafted &/or appropriate accommodations are established and can be provided.
It is not enough that a psychologist performs this evaluation because the person has to have specific education and training to perform multiple tests to properly confirm a diagnosis and rule out others. Most psychologists are not trained in this specialty. Once the Neuropsychological Evaluation is completed and Report issued, you will have a basis to obtain special services.
