You wouldn't know if a newborn has a learning disability and most likely wouldn't until they start primary school. During kindergarten in the starts they screen all kids in a general way for learning disabilities and if issues become appearent, the school would request a formal evaluation. A newborn, you look for a baby to meet the common milestones---- smiling, rolling over, cooing, sitting up, crawling, pulling up, pointing, walking, etc. Your pediatrician can give you a guideline for that but remember that many babies are early and late with milestones with no issues at all. Good luck and enjoy your baby.
