Specific Learning Disabilities
Learning Disability (LD) is more than a “difference” or “difficulty” with learning—it’s a neurological disorder that affects the brain’s ability to receive, process, store and respond to information. LD will vary in how it impacts each individual child, adolescent and adult. Understanding the basic facts will enable you to help yourself, your child, or someone you know to be a well-informed and effective advocate.
“…neurological disorder that causes their brain to process and interpret information differently (NCLD, 2013)”
