What we know about Learning Disabilities

Understanding learning disabilities (LD) can be confusing. Sometimes it is hard to separate fact from fiction or truth from opinion.

  • People with LD have brains that are wired differently
  • LD impacts the way the brain processes information
  • LD can affect learning across many different subjects
  • LD continues throughout the lifespan
  • LD exists across class, culture, race, language, and gender
