Learning Disabilities Research Paper
There is a strong relationship between inattentiveness and reading disabilities. The comorbidity of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children with LD varies from about 10% to as high as 60% depending on the sample taken. [ 13, 14] Co-occurrence of major depressive disorder (MDD) and LDs was studied in 100 children age 9–12 years.
Learning disability, learning disorder, or learning difficulty (British English) is a condition in the brain that causes difficulties comprehending or processing information and can be caused by several different factors. Given the "difficulty learning in a typical manner", this does not exclude the ability to learn in a different manner. Therefore, some people can be more accurately described as having a "learning difference", thus avoiding any misconception of being disabled with a lack of ability to learn and possible negative stereotyping. In the United Kingdom, the term "learning disability" generally refers to an intellectual disability, while difficulties such as dyslexia and dyspraxia are usually referred to as "learning difficulties".
Research shows that risk factors may be present from birth and tend to run in families. 1 In fact, children who have a parent with a learning disability are more likely to develop a learning disability themselves. 2 To better understand learning disabilities, researchers are studying how children’s brains learn to read, write, and develop math skills.
