Did You Know

Learning disabilities should not be confused with other disabilities such as intellectual disabilities, autism, deafness, blindness and behavioral disorders. None of these conditions are learning disabilities. In addition, they should not be confused with lack of educational opportunities, such as frequent changes of schools or attendance problems. Also, children who are learning English do not necessarily have a learning disability.
