So, what is Learning Disability?
“Learning Disabilities” is an “umbrella” term unfolding a number of other, more detailed learning disabilities, such as dyslexia and dysgraphia. In short, and straightforward sense, a learning disability is a processing complicatedness along with any of our five senses that may be damaged.
As per the National Joint Committee on Learning Disabilities (NJCLD), “a heterogeneous group of disorders manifested by significant difficulties in the acquisition and use of listening, speaking, reading, writing, reasoning or mathematical abilities. These disorders are intrinsic to the individual and presumed to be due to Central Nervous System Dysfunction. Even though a learning disability may occur concomitantly with other handicapping conditions (e.g. sensory impairment, intellectual disability, social and emotional disturbance) or environmental influences (e.g. cultural differences, insufficient/inappropriate instruction, psychogenic factors) it is not the direct result of those conditions or influences.”
