Top Definition
A learning disability is a neurologically based processing problem, such as a disorder in auditory processing, visual processing, or non-verbal processing. Learning disabilities are diagnosed when there is a gap between potential and actual achievement, and therefor people with learning disabilities have average to above-average intelligence. Learning disabilities are lifelong conditions, but with appropriate specialized education students can achieve at the same level as their same-age peers.
