Specific Learning Difficulties FAQ

Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLDs) affect the way information is learned and processed.

Difficulties in the processing of information can make learning and expressing ideas difficult. They can have significant impact on education and learning and on the acquisition of literacy skills.

In general, a student may be diagnosed with a SpLD where there is a discrepancy between achievement and intellectual ability. Specific Learning Difficulties occur independently of ability.

Each person’s learning profile will be unique and their learning differences will manifest themselves in a variety of ways which may be mild or severe.
