Learning Disabilities : Overview

Learning disabilities: Our definition

A learning disorder 
may be a reduced intellectual ability and difficulty with everyday activities – for instance chores, socializing or managing money – which affects someone for his or her whole life.

People with a learning disorder 
tend to require longer to find out and should need support to develop new skills, understand complicated information and interact with people.


What can cause a learning disability?

A learning disorder 
occurs when the brain remains developing (before, during or soon after birth). Several things can cause a learning disability.

Before birth things can happen to the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) that can cause a learning disability. A child are often born with a learning disorder if the mother has an accident or illness while she is pregnant, or if the unborn baby develops certain genes.

A person are often 
born with a learning disorder if he or she doesn't get enough oxygen during childbirth, has trauma to the top , or is born too early.

After birth, a learning disorder are often caused by infancy illnesses, accidents and seizures.


Types of Learning Disabilities

Dyslexia - Dyslexia is that the 
commonest sort of all learning disabilities. It is a language-based disability during which an individual has trouble understanding words, sentences, or paragraphs. People with dyslexia often have problems with processing or understanding what they read or hear. Many dyslexic people are notably talented in arts and music; 3-D visual perception; athletic and mechanical ability.

Dyscalculia - Dyscalculia may be a 
life-long learning disorder that affects the power to understand and solve math concepts. There are many various sorts of math disability and these can affect people differently at different stages of someone's life. People with dyscalculia often have difficulty manipulating numbers in their head and remembering steps in formulas and equations. Just like dyslexia, people with dyscalculia are often taught to realize success.

Dysgraphia - Dysgraphia may be a 
writing disability where people find it hard to make letters and write within an outlined space. Many people with dysgraphia possess handwriting that's uneven and inconsistent. Many are ready to write legibly but do so very slowly or very small. Typically, people with dysgraphia are unable to see letters and don't possess the power to recollect the motor patterns of letters and writing requires an outsized amount of energy and time.

Dyspraxia - Dyspraxia may be a 
disorder that affects the event of motor skills. People with dyspraxia have trouble planning and executing fine motor tasks, which can range from waving goodbye to getting dressed. Dyspraxia may be a life-long disorder with no cure, but options are available for helping to enhance someone's ability to function and be independent.


Dyspraxia isn't a learning disorder , but it commonly coexists with other learning disabilities which will affect brain .

ADHD - ADHD may be a 
disorder that causes people to lose specialise in tasks very easily. ADHD has two main types, with a 3rd being a mixture of the 2 . Hyperactive-Impulsive ADHD is distinguished by the persons excessive amount of activity. This may include constant fidgeting, non-stop talking, problems with doing quiet activities, trouble controlling their temper, and more. Inattentive ADHD causes people to not put the needed attention into a required task. People with inattentive ADHD may struggle with listening to instruction, daydream tons , process information slowly, get bored easily, and be very poorly organized. ADHD isn't a learning disorder , but can cause people to struggle with learning and is usually linked to other learning disabilities.

Auditory Processing Disorders - Auditory processing disorders are disorders which will 
cause an individual to struggle with distinguishing similar sounds, also as other difficulties. Auditory processing disorders aren't considered learning disabilities by the Canadian Government, but they could explain why someone would be having troubles with learning.

Visual Processing Disorders - Visual processing disorders are disorders that cause people to struggle with seeing the differences between similar letters, number, objects, colors, shapes and patterns. Just like auditory processing disorders, visual processing disorders aren't considered learning disabilities by the Canadian Government, but might be a problem when it involves learning.

Non-verbal Learning Disorders - Non-verbal learning disabilities (NLD), or non-verbal learning disorders, are neurological syndromes that develop in the right side of the brain. People with NLD have a really strong verbal ability, remarkable memory and spelling skills, and powerful auditory retention; although they possess poor social skills and have difficulty understanding facial expression and body language. Many don't react well to vary and a few possess poor social judgement. Some people with NLD have poor co-ordination, balance problems and difficulty with fine motor skills.
