Learning difficulty

From Teflpedia
(Redirected from Learning difficulties)

A learning difficulty is a condition that can cause an individual to experience problems with learning. They are usually distinguished from learning disabilities.

The most important learning difficulty for EFL teachers to recognise is dyslexia. Due to the irregularities of the English spelling system, this is particularly relevant to English.

A second significant one is attention deficit disorder (ADD), in which a learner’s attention span is affected.
