    Learning disabilities are problems that affect the brain’s ability to receive, process, analyze, and/or store information.  These problems affect the person’s ability to learn at the same rate someone else that doesn’t have a disability would.  However, learning disabilities do not have anything to do with a person’s intelligence.  Some types of learning disabilities include: dyslexia – a reading disability, Aphasia – a language disability, and Visual Processing disorder – A sensory disability related to processing images.

ADD is referred to as Attention Deficit Disorder and behaviorial characteristics of people who have this condition usually are: difficulty paying attention, inability to control their actions, hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention.

    In addition to these answers, men are much more likely to develop learning disabilities than women. Since the genetic code of males is XY and that of females is XX, and information is stored only on X chromosomes, if there is a problem with an X chromosome, females have a backup whereas males do not. Scientists believe that the extra X chromosome actually keeps women from developing learning disabilities at the rate men develop them.
