About this section


MedlinePlus:32 Learning disorders affect how a person understands, remembers and responds to new information. people with learning disorders may have problems listening or paying attention speaking reading or writing doing math although learning disorders occur in very young children, they are usually not recognized until the child reaches school age. about one-third of children who have learning disabilities also have adhd, which makes it hard to focus. evaluation and testing by a trained professional can help identify a learning disorder. the next step is special education, which involves helping your child in the areas where he or she needs the most help. sometimes tutors or speech or language therapists also work with the children. learning disorders do not go away, but strategies to work around them can make them less of a problem. nih: national institute of neurological disorders and stroke

MalaCards based summary: Learning Disability, also known as learning disorders, is related to neurofibromatosis and tuberous sclerosis. An important gene associated with Learning Disability is OMG (oligodendrocyte myelin glycoprotein), and among its related pathways are Neuroscience and Glioma. The compounds gelfoam and tecogalan sodium have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include testes, brain and heart, and related mouse phenotypes are hearing/vestibular/ear and liver/biliary system.

Disease Ontology:9 A specific developmental disorder that involves difficulty in scholastic skills such as reading, writing, spelling, reasoning, recalling and/or organizing information resulting from the brain's inability to receive and process information.

NINDS:42 Learning disabilities are disorders that affect the ability to understand or use spoken or written language, do mathematical calculations, coordinate movements, or direct attention. Although learning disabilities occur in very young children, the disorders are usually not recognized until the child reaches school age. Research shows that 8 to 10 percent of American children under 18 years of age have some type of learning disability.
