What are Learning Disabilities?
Learning disabilities are disorders that affect the ability to understand or use spoken or written language, do mathematical calculations, coordinate movements, or direct attention. Although learning disabilities occur in very young children, the disorders are usually not recognized until the child reaches school age.
Types of Learning Disabilities include:
Dyscalculia– a specific learning disability that affects a person’s ability to understand numbers and learn math facts.
Dysgraphia – a specific learning disability that affects a person’s handwriting ability and fine motor skills.
Dyslexia– A specific learning disability that affects reading and related language-based processing skills.
Non-Verbal Learning Disability– difficulty interpreting cues like facial expressions or body language and may have poor coordination.
Oral/Written Language Disorder and Specific Reading Comprehension Deficit– Learning disabilities that affect an individual’s understanding of what they read or of spoken language. The ability to express one’s self with oral language may also be impacted.
Learning Disabilities can affect social functioning in many ways. A person with a Learning Disability can have difficulty interpreting the behaviors of others, especially with nonverbal communication. They may struggle with connecting with peers, missing social cues, and not understanding what is expected of them in social situations; they may have difficulty finding suitable words or they may be unable to understand jokes.
