Students with learning disabilities (LD) have difficulty acquiring basic skills or academic content due to difficulty using or understanding spoken or written language.
These difficulties may impact a student’s ability to read, write, spell, think, speak, listen, or do mathematics. Learning disabilities do not include those difficulties that are primarily due to a student’s intellectual, physical, or emotional disabilities, nor those that are due to a student’s environmental, cultural, or economic disadvantages.
Common learning disabilities include dyslexia, dysgraphia, perceptual disabilities, and developmental aphasia. It is estimated that approximately 6-8% of school-age children have some sort of LD. Some experts believe that lack of and differences in screening protocols have resulted in LD being underreported.
