What is a Learning Disability?
"Neurological in origin, learning disabilities impede a person's ability to store, process and/or produce information. Learning Disabilities can affect one's ability to read, write, speak, or compute math, and can impair socialization skills.
“Individuals with learning disabilities are of average or above average intelligence, but the disability creates a gap between ability and performance.
“Without early and adequate identification and intervention, learning disabilities can lead to serious consequences for individuals and society - including loss of self esteem, school drop-out, juvenile delinquency, illiteracy, and other critical problems."-National Center for Learning Disabilities, 1997
