  • A disorder in which a person's ability to acquire basic skills such as reading, writing, speaking, listening, or computing results in achievement that is not commensurate with same-age peers. Typically, the disability is identified when a discrepancy (of specified magnitude) is found between a standardized ability measure and a standardized achievement measure, with the score on the ability measure being higher than the score on the achievement measure. A learning disability cannot be the result of a person's family background, economic conditions, or home language.
