These are the examples of common developmental disabilities. If you notice the signs of developmental disabilities, it is critical to discuss with a specialist such as a special education teacher, doctor, psychologist, or therapist who has knowledge in developmental disabilities and receive appropriate diagnosis. Appropriate treatment and intervention strategies vary by individual needs. Please discuss details with a specialist.
Students with learning disability (LD) have average or above-average intelligence, yet are struggling with some specific areas of skills, such as listening, speaking, reading, writing, calculating, or analyzing. Since these students have average or above-average intelligence, identifying learning disability is relatively difficult. Instead, some students with LD may be misunderstood as "lazy" or "unmotivated." The following are the types of LD:
This type of learning disability has reading difficulty. Students with this type of LD may struggle in distinguishing similar-shpaed letters, connecting letter to sound, or recognizing letters and words.
This type of learning disability has writing difficulty. Students with this type of LD may struggle in learning new letters or make mirror copies of letters.
