What is a Learning Disability?

A learning disability is a global impairment of cognitive function. It is a lifelong developmental disability which will always affect someone's ability to learn and function independently as an adult. It includes the presence of:

  • Significantly reduced cognitive skills - the ability to understand new or complex information, to learn new skills (often defined as an IQ <70) and
  • A reduced ability to cope independently (impaired social and adaptive functioning), which started before adulthood and has a lasting effect on development.

These disabilities will have been present since before the person was 18, and usually from birth. A learning disability is permanent and affects a person’s entire life.

It differs from specific difficulties such as reading and writing problems, Dyslexia, Autism and Asperger's.

The person may have a medical diagnosis already such as Asperger’s Syndrome, Autism or Cerebral Palsy, but this does not necessarily mean that the person has Learning Disabilities.

STOMP
