By learning disabilities, we mean the range for learning disorders and learning difficulties.
Learning difficulties might be of a temporary nature. The subject matter can be too difficult, but with extra explanation the student can make up for it. The student may have problems at home and be less engaged at school. The student may be less motivated lately. Students with learning difficulties especially need a stimulating approach and they are sensitive to extra attention, extra structure and positive support.
Pupils with learning disabilities have a disorder that persists and severely impairs learning in one or more domains. Despite extra efforts by the pupil and his/her environment, a number of aspects remain below expectation. There is no clear cause in the student’s ability, social-emotional background, education, language or a form of disability. The pupil struggles in a limited number of domains and functions in accordance with expectations in the other domains.
