Language-Based Learning Disability (LBLD)
Language-based learning disability (LBLD) is a spectrum of verbal and/or non-verbal problems in understanding and using language and in accomplishing numerical tasks such as in dyslexia and dyscalculia. These heterogenous neurological conditions significantly affect academic performance as well as movement and coordination. Thus, it is most often identified during school age. Those with LBLD often have difficulties in expressing and comprehending ideas. Around 15 -20% of American children have this condition.
