Abstract:
A learning disability, or a learning disorder, refers to a condition in the brain that causes significant difficulty and struggle in comprehending or processing information. People with learning disabilities have trouble performing specific types of tasks or acquiring specific skills, especially if they are left by themselves, or given conventional instructions. Education of individuals with learning disabilities thus involves incorporating special techniques and methodologies, such as classroom adjustments, education therapy, and use of special equipment such as talking calculators, text-to-speech and speech-to-text programs.
