Types of Learning Disabilities

Learning Disabilities are neurological disorders that affect the brain's ability to receive, process, store, and respond to information. 

Dyslexia - A language processing disorder can hinder reading, writing, spelling, and sometimes even speaking.

Dyscalculia - Dyscalculia refers to a wide range of lifelong learning disabilities involving math.

Dyspraxia - Dyspraxia, a disorder that affects motor skill development, often coexists with learning disabilities.

Dysgraphia - This LD affects writing and can lead to problems with spelling, poor handwriting, and putting thoughts on paper. 

Executive Functioning - Many people with LD struggle with executive function, which governs your ability to plan, organize, and manage details.

ADD/ADHD - Although not learning disabilities, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and other disorders are not uncommon among people with LD.
