People With Learning Disabilities!

Learning disabilities are a set of neurological disorders which affects the person in more ways than one. These disorders hinder the processing system of the brain. A queer thing about such disabilities is that it does not or may not affect all the faculties of a person. For instance, a person may not understand something in writing, but when the same thing is presented by way of oral exchange of letters, he or she may be able to correctly interpret that. It may surface in disparate forms and garbs.

Here we are going to discuss some types of learning disabilities which have been observed to be more common than the others. The most common forms include dysgraphia, dyslexia, dyscalculia and aphasia. Dysgraphia implies problems in the sphere of writing. Dyslexia is a form of reading disorder and Dyscalculia means inability to properly process mathematical knowledge. Aphasia is known to be a form of general developmental disability.

Learning disabilities affect some crucial areas of a person. He is normally unable to differentiate among various disparate audio-visual experiences. When he looks at a specific object in front of his eyes, he ignores the background. Hence, if told to recall some events or objects, he fails to put the visualized thing in the proper perspective.

Apart from above, it also impairs the person’s memory. He or she has a tough time remembering the past events. Also, he can not put the chain of occurrences in sequence and fails to grasp the meaning of words and sentences.

Aphasia patients manifest articulation disorder which means it is difficult for them to utter meaningful words properly. They also suffer from expressive and receptive disabilities. They may be able to form an idea, thought or image in their minds but are unable to express the same satisfactorily. Furthermore, the brain of a person with learning disabilities can not process the information provided to him through conversations.
