About Learning Disabilities
The term "Learning disability" covers a wide spectrum of conditions which can impacts each person differently.
It is commonly believed that a learning disability occurs due to the development of a person's brain being affected either before they were born, during their birth or in their early childhood.
They usually results in the intellectual ability of a person to be effected, and for them to have difficulties with some everyday activities.
While a person with a learning disability may require more time and support to learn or develop new skills, it does not mean it is beyond them.
