Learning Disabilities

Learning Disabilities (LD) are manifested by significant problems in listening, understanding, speaking, reading, writing, reasoning, or mathematical ability. The LD may be mild or severe. Some people with LD have trouble performing tasks when instructions are too rapid to process; this is sometimes mistaken for carelessness or lower intelligence. While children may have LD detected at school, many adults struggle without receiving the proper diagnosis and help. Due to the many forms of LD, it is important that an individual receive proper testing and treatment.
