A learning disability affects the way a person learns and deals with all areas of life. Examples include developing essential skills, understanding complex information, managing finances and interacting with other people.
People with a learning disability typically find it difficult to accomplish day-to-day tasks, and often need support to develop the skills they need to live independently. Many people with a mild learning disability are able to live on their own, and may only require occasional support. However, those with a severe or profound learning disability could require full time support and care throughout their lives.
Individuals with learning disabilities are often treated ‘differently’ to the rest of society. They have to face prejudice and challenges on a daily basis, and may find it difficult to access services and have the control over their lives that most of us take for granted.
