The five main types of learning disabilities

Posted Aug 26 2008 4:27pm





I recently came across a website entitled HealthLine.com . This site offers a wealth of information in a wide variety of health related issues. My interests, of course, centered on ADHD and LD. Their article entitled Learning Disorders provides a wonderfully simple explanation for each type of learning disability:

  • Reading disorders (dyslexia)
  • Mathematics disorders (dyscalculia)
  • Disorders of written expression (dysgraphia)
  • Disorders of fine motor skills (dyspraxia)
  • Information processing disorders

The article goes on to say:

Learning disorders affect approximately two million children between the ages of

six and 17 (5% of public school children)



If you are new to learning disabilities or suspect your child may have one (or more), I highly recommend you read this article .
