This landmark resource gives educational decision makers and researchers in-depth theoretical and practical insight into mathematical learning difficulties and disabilities, combining diverse perspectives from fields such as special /5(5).

12) Research on the neurological basis of learning disabilities A) has been relatively consistent in pointing to the left temporal lobe as being involved. B) has made it possible to use neuroimaging as a screening tool for learning disabilities. C) has largely failed to find any connection between brain function and learning disabilities. Students with cognitive-based learning disabilities may have difficulties in the following areas: Attention — The ability to stay on task in a consistent manner.. Working Memory — The ability to retain and process information for short time periods.. Processing Speed — The rate at which the brain handles information.. Long-Term Memory — The ability to not only store, but recall.

Your child may have a learning disability. Learning disabilities (LD) are neurological disorders that make it especially hard to acquire specific academic skills. Learning disabilities are due to genetic and/or neurobiological factors that alter brain functioning in a manner which affects one or more cognitive processes related to learning.

These processing problems can interfere with learning basic skills such as reading, writing and/or math. Learning Disabilities Characteristics What are some of the common characteristics of LD.
