The term “specific learning disability” (SLD) applies to specific areas of academic learning in subjects who are intellectually normal, with normal vision and hearing, who do not have any chronic medical or mental disease, and who receive adequate education—but still do not succeed academically. The reason for the failure to learn and achieve adequately in these subjects is a neurologically based learning problem. This group is the subject of this book.
