Learning Disabilities

Learning disabilities are disorders that affect the ability to either interpret what one sees and hears or to link information processed in different parts of the brain. These limitations can show up in many ways–as specific difficulties with spoken and written language, coordination, self-control, or attention. Such difficulties extend to schoolwork and can impede learning to read, write, or do math with age-appropriate facility. In some children, overlapping learning disabilities may be apparent. Others may have a single, isolated learning problem that has little effect on other areas of their lives.

Some children with learning disabilities have striking gifts, often in creative areas.

People tend to carry a learning disability into adulthood—although some develop ways to cope and compensate for the problems, minimizing their weaknesses and making the most of their strengths. Yet the stress resulting from having unusual “hard wiring” in the brain may continue.

The Asclepeion Center works with children and adults with learning disabilities.
