Common Characteristics Associated with Learning Disabilities | Frequently Asked Questions | Types of Learning Disabilities | What are the Causes of Learning Disabilities?
Learning disabilities (LD) are neurobiological in nature. How do we know this? Over the last decade, particularly, compelling scientific evidence from genetic research and studies of the brain has clearly demonstrated the neurobiological basis of learning disabilities.
It is important to emphasize that individuals with LD can learn. Information can be processed, but at a slower rate and/or by different methods as compared to individuals without LD. The educational process, learning strategies, compensatory techniques, and remedial intervention can significantly impact the learning process. Therefore, effective and efficient learning and teaching methods are needed to specifically meet the needs of individuals with LD.
