    My daughter is five years old and in in kindergarten.I was told by her teacher that she doesnt know how to read and write,read simple words ,sentences,write the alphabet ...etc

    I help her with her lessons at home and also noticed that howmuch ever she tries she keeps forgetting the alphabet,their sound,and the way they should be written.I have to guide her each and every time.

    Is this learning disability?Whom should i take help from?...Please help...I am really worried.

    This link may help:
    Does the school have a speech-language pathologist who can evaluate her?

    I would try this link to search for a professional near you and discuss what you're seeing. Even if the school doesn't have a SLP, they may be able to make a referral. Good luck!

    This may help too:
    P.S. I would also discuss this with her pediatrician. Sorry, I re-read that you're not in the US so the findpro link won't do you much good.
