Learning DisabilitiesLearning disability is an umbrella term that includes conditions like ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyscalculia. These disorders can be qualified as “intellectual disabilities”, but are usually less cognitively inhibiting. Common accommodations for students with learning disabilities include longer exam periods, allowing students to take oral exams instead of written, or having a designated reader to assist that student. According toAHEAD, 1 in 25 college students had a learning disability in 2008-2009.
