Learning disabilities are neurological disorders that make it especially hard to acquire specific types of academic skills. Almost 2.5 million students in the US have been formally diagnosed with some form of learning disability. This is probably just a fraction of the people who struggle. Learning disabilities do not always present in a straight forward way and this makes a clear diagnosis difficult and often elusive. Recognizing a learning disability is especially difficult when it has given rise to behavior patterns that muddle a diagnosis It is not uncommon for learning disabilities to give rise to moodiness, depression or apathy. Children can become frustrated and combative or easily distractible and agitated. Children may feel different, stupid or defective in some way, often without sharing their feelings and without understanding why.

Learning disabilities can impact both children and adults and are usually understood within the commonly agreed upon categories of Dyslexia (reading disability), Dyscalculia (mathematics disability) and Dysgraphia (writing disability).
