A learning disability, sometimes referred as a specific learning disability, is an umbrella term related to a neurological disorder ‘in one or more of the psychological processes involved in understanding or in using language, spoken or written, that may manifest itself in the imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell, or to do mathematical calculations (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act; IDEA, 2004). In general, a student with a learning disability may have difficulties in reading (e.g. dyslexia), mathematics (e.g. dyscalculia), writing (e.g. dysgraphia), organisation, listening comprehension, or a combination of these. It is important to note that a learning disability is a life-long disorder that can adversely affect many areas of an individual’s life; therefore, it is important to provide supports and services to give these students an opportunity to succeed in school and beyond.
