A learning disability is a group of neurological disorders that affects the manner in which individuals with average or above average intelligence receive, process, store, or communicate information. People with learning disabilities have a large discrepancy between ability and achievement. They must have the potential and the opportunity to develop achievement skills. This invisible disability may be mild to severe and it may be in one or several areas. It is not a disease, so there is no cure, but there are usually ways to overcome the challenges it poses through study modifications and auxiliary aids and services.
