Learning Disability Information
A learning disability (LD) is neurological condition that affects a person's
ability to store, process, and/or relay information. It may show up as problems
with reading, writing, spelling, math skills, listening, memory, speaking,
physical coordination, social skills, self-control or other. A person can have
problems in more than one area but can also function normally or above-average
in many other areas. Functioning can also be inconsistent, meaning “normal”
sometimes and greatly below average at other times. Generally, individuals with
learning disabilities are average to above average intelligence.
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
(ADHD) are not technically considered learning disabilities but can impact
learning and often people with learning disabilities also have ADD or ADHD.
