Learning Disabilities


What Causes a Learning Disability?

Some learning disabilities can be passed down from generation to generation such as being hereditary, complications during pregnancy, birth, and incidents after birth. Learning disabilities can affect physical, cognitive, brain functionality, and fine motor skills. Learning disabilities do not discriminate and are not caused by environmental or cultural factors.

Sometimes things that often come easy for some may be extremely challenging for others. Disabilities don’t define who you are, it is the opposite. Once you know that you are as capable as another person, it empowers you to do things you always wanted to do despite the limitations you may have.
