Learning disabilities can occur as a result of numerous factors and it is often not possible to identify why someone has such a disability - in most cases it is how the person’s brain developed before, during or soon after birth.
Learning disabilities greatly affect the way in which a person interprets information and this can have a profound impact on the speed and ability of that person to process what they have experienced. The level of support needed by someone with learning disabilities ranges greatly from requiring help in making decisions in day to day life, to being fully dependent on another person for the most basic of needs.
There are many conditions associated with learning disabilities, specific examples are Down’s Syndrome, Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. However an individual with a learning disability could also be afflicted with numerous physical disabilities and mental health issues.
