What is a learning disability?
Learning disability is a term that refers to individuals who find it hard to:
- undertake everyday tasks
A learning disability is a lifelong condition. Many people with a learning disability will need support to live as independently as possible.
Learning disability doesn't include specific learning difficulties like dyspraxia or dyslexia. It doesn't include autism either, although lots of people with autism also have a learning disability.
