Specific Learning DisorderA neurodevelopmental disorder or learning disability begins during school age but may not be recognized until adulthood. Learning disabilities refer to ongoing problems in three areas: reading, writing, and math, foundational to one’s learning ability. 5 – 15% of school-age children struggle with a learning disability. An estimated 80% of those school-age children have the reading disorder dyslexia. One-third of learning disabilities also have ADHD. Other specific skills that may be impacted include putting thoughts into written words, spelling, reading comprehension, math problem-solving, or calculations.
