A learning disability (LD) is a neurological disorder that affects the brain's ability to receive, process, store and respond to information.

The term, learning disability, is used to describe the seeming unexplained difficulty that a person of at least average intelligence has in acquiring basic academic skills.

These skills are essential for success at school and work, and for coping with life in general. LDs come in many forms and in varying levels of severity, so a person's pattern of learning ability needs to be understood in order to find strategies and accommodations to compensate.

Learning disabilities are a lifelong condition - they do not go away - but can be dealt with successfully by using areas of strength, effective learning methodologies, and accommodations such as technology, a note-taker or digital books.
