A Learning Disability is a condition in which an individual has difficulty learning in the usual way, due to some interference with the way that their brain stores, processes, or produces information. A person with a Learning Disability may experience problems in reading, writing, speaking, spelling, reasoning, or doing math.
People with Learning Disabilities may have trouble learning new things, but they often have normal or above average intelligence. One indicator of a Learning Disability is when an individual has low academic performance despite having average or above average IQ. While there is no cure for a Learning Disability, affected individuals may succeed in school and in life if they receive the right support and intervention.
