Every day we learn more about the human brain and how it functions. There are many unknown factors that affect the brain’s ability to receive and process information.
Learning disabilities generally mean “difficulty learning in a typical manner.” Children with learning disabilities such as dyslexia (reading), dyscalculia (math), and dysgraphia (writing), can face challenges their whole lives.
