Introduction

Learning difficulties are neurological and are not an impression of someone or their kid's intelligence or how hard someone is attempting. A mainstream way of describing learning difficulties is that the learner's brain is wired differently, and he or she gets and processes information differently (Gregg, 2009). Learning difficulties can make spelling, reading, writing, and mathematics troublesome. They likewise can affect someone's capacity to organise and remember information, tune in and speak, and can affect someone's short term and long haul memory and timing. The term learning difficulties is a broad term for a scope of specific learning difficulties. Learning difficulties are not issues with learning due to seeing or hearing problems or learning in a second dialect, and so forth. Individuals with learning difficulties typically have average or above-average intelligence, but there is an inconsistency between their accomplishments and their potential (Katz, Goldstein and Beers, 2002). Common learning difficulties include dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia and ADHD.
