From LD Online a checklist that might point to a learning disability. Once a student manifests a number of these over a period of time, it is time to look for a specific diagnosis, realizing that many children have a host of related disorders as well. Image from LDOnline.

INTERACTIVE LD CHECKLIST

LD Interactive Checklist

The following checklist is designed as a helpful guide and not as a tool to pinpoint specific learning disabilities. The more characteristics you check, the more likely that the individual described is at risk for (or shows signs of) learning disabilities. When filling out this form, think about the person's behavior over at least the past six months. And when you're done, don't wait to seek assistance from school personnel or other professionals.
