Learning disability

            Having a learning disability doesn't mean you can't learn. Some of the most creative thinkers of all time were diagnosed with LD. People with LD aren't slow or stupid, they simply have trouble learning in certain areas, such as reading, writing, math, or communication. These difficulties are a result of the way their brains take in and process information. .
             The most common type of learning disability is dyslexia a learning disability in which someone has trouble understanding the written word. Dyslexia is sometimes called the "invisible disability" because no one knows a person has it unless that person is asked to read or write. There are other learning disabilities, too. Kids who have trouble doing math problems in school may have dyscalculia a learning disability in which the person has trouble understanding math. Someone who has trouble forming letters when they write may have dysgraphia Some kids have trouble understanding language even though their hearing and vision normal. These children are said to have language disabilities. Often children with language disabilities also have trouble understanding what they read. All of these conditions have something in common -- they are all types of learning differences.
             Sometimes kids with attention problems have learning disabilities, too. About 50% of kids with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a type of attention problem, also have learning disabilities. Problems with paying attention may make school-related learning even more challenging. Although you can have both ADHD and LD, neither one is known to cause the other.
