The symptoms of learning disabilities are a diverse set of characteristics which effect achievement and development. A learning disorder often affects a person’s ability to acquire and use academic skills. They aren’t the same as mental or physical disabilities, and don’t reflect a person’s intelligence. Learning disabilities are usually diagnosed in childhood and individuals with a learning disorder often have average to above average intelligence. Although there is no cure for learning disabilities, seeking help from a qualified mental health professional can help individuals learn how to cope and manage their lives to the best of their abilities.
