Distance Learning

A learning disability (LD) is a hidden disability. Unlike the student who uses a wheelchair or a seeing-eye dog, the student with a learning disability shows no visible characteristics of a disability. Because it is a hidden disability and many times goes undiagnosed, the person may have experienced being labeled as slow learners or stupid. On the contrary, students with learning disabilities generally have average to above average intelligence but may have difficulties acquiring and demonstrating knowledge and understanding. A learning disability is an information processing, storage, or retrieval problem, not an intelligence problem.

Individuals with learning disabilities have deficits in one or more of the following areas:

  • oral comprehension
  • nonverbal reasoning
  • expressive language
  • coordination
  • academic skills
  • integration of information
  • attention
  • visual/spatial perception
  • organizational skills
  • social judgment
