Review Outlines Underlying Causes Of Learning Disabilities.

HealthDay (4/20, Preidt) reported that a review “published April 18 in the journal Science outlines the underlying causes of learning disabilities and the best way to tailor individual teaching and learning for affected children.” In addition, the study “discusses how best to train teachers, school psychologists and doctors who deal with these children.” Investigators “said that specific learning disabilities (SLDs) are the result of abnormal brain development caused by complicated genetic and environmental factors,” leading “to conditions as dyslexia, dyscalculia, AD/HD, autism spectrum disorder, and specific language impairment.”
