June 20-26 is Learning Disability Week

Learning Disability Week is an annual awareness campaign aimed at promoting understanding and inclusion of people with learning disabilities. The week features a variety of events and activities aimed at raising awareness, promoting positive images of people with learning disabilities, and challenging negative attitudes and stereotypes. The goal of Learning Disability Week is to create a more inclusive society where people with learning disabilities have the same opportunities and rights as everyone else.

Learning disabilities are neurological conditions that affect a person’s ability to receive, process, store, and respond to information. Examples include dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyscalculia, non-verbal learning disabilities, Oral/Written Language Disorder and Specific Reading Comprehension Deficit. They can cause difficulties with reading, writing, mathematics, and other basic skills.

Learning disabilities cannot be cured, but they can be managed with proper support and interventions. People with learning disabilities can learn and succeed in school, work, and life with appropriate accommodations and instruction tailored to their individual needs. Early identification and intervention can improve outcomes and maximize potential.
