In brief: See a Speciaist

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

In brief: 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.
