Learning disability refers to the inability of a person to learn like a normal person. Learning disability can be in the forms of difficulty to read, write, spell, organise or reason. Learning disability is a neurological condition that results from a difference in the way a person’s brain is wired. Learning disability does not imply the lack of intelligence in the person. People with learning disabilities have proven to be brilliant and have excelled greatly in life. Though they might have difficulties in learning, they can go onto learn in ways that well suit them, and thus can be termed as learning difference as well.
Learning disability is a huge concept that includes many types of learning disabilities and disorders such as Dyslexia, non-verbal learning disability, Dysgraphia and Dyscalculia. A learning disability is a lifelong issue and cannot be fully cured or permanently gotten rid of. However, with the right support and assistance, people with learning disabilities can sort out a way that well suits them to overcome the issue. Therefore, it is very crucial to identify a learning disability early on in order to provide the support and assistant that can lead to long-term improvements. Parents have to keep an eye out for any symptoms of learning disability in their children in order to treat them accordingly. Teachers are also equally responsible to identify learning disabilities in students and to report it to the relevant parties for treatment. This diploma in learning disability awareness – level 3 will tremendously benefit parents, teachers, students, job seekers and professionals related to learning disabilities. This diploma will also be worthwhile to anyone willing to be aware on learning disabilities. This diploma will teach you on learning disabilities, causes of learning disabilities and how it affects people.
