(HealthDay News) -- Difficulty reading and writing is common for children and does not always indicate a learning disability.

But children with learning disabilities usually show several signs that don't get better over time, the U.S. National Institute of Child Health and Human Development says.

Common signs of a learning disability include ongoing:

  • Problems with reading, writing or math.
  • Inability to pay attention and follow directions.
  • Trouble staying organized.
  • Difficulty expressing thoughts.
  • Impulsive behavior.
