Neuropsych testing: The mainstay of diagnosing a learning disability centers around neuropsychological testing. This can be done by a board certified neuropsychologist, who will take a detailed history and then perform neuropsychological testing that can isolate and hone in on areas of learning deficiency and difficulty.

See a Speciaist: A specialist can help with diagnosis and proper therapy, if this is indeed present. Often psychologists do these things.
