Academic Skills Disorder

Academic skills disorder is an umbrella term for learning disabilities. Learning disabilities can take many forms: hyperactivity, visual problems that cause written material to appear to move and shift that makes reading difficult (dyslexia), math difficulties (dyscalculia), problems with physical coordination, and many others. Learning disabilities can be dealt with through personally tailored special education programs, cognitive/behavioral therapies, and sometimes with medication.
