A learning disability affects the way someone learns, communicates
or does some everyday things.
It is not an illness that
can be cured. It is not mental illness. It is not dyslexia.
people with a mild learning disability do not need a lot of support. Other people may need support in a particular area, eg:
going shopping or getting dressed. Some people with a learning disability also have a physical disability. They can need support
24 hours a day.
A learning disability does not stop
someone from learning and achieving if they get the right support.
