A learning disability is a condition which hinders a persons' learning. There are many different types of learning disabilities, ranging in severity from mild to severe. Dyslexia, for example, makes it difficult to read words in a 'proper' manner, causing the afflicted individual strain when trying to read and comprehend material. Some forms of dyslexia inhibit the afflicted's ability to write; what takes one person an hour to write may take another five, depending on the level of disability at hand.
A learning disability is a disability that makes it harder for people to do well in school and in life just in general. It could make is harder to read or write or make it hard to concentrate during school. It could make it harder for people to do activities.
