Re: whats the difference between ADHD and LD?

A child with a Learning Disability must have difficulty in one or more academic subject, they must have normal intelligence and the disability is not caused by some other condition( like sensory deficits). A child with a Learning Disability can be helped, if proper teaching and learning methods are instilled and taught. A child with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is characterized as overactive, inattention and impulsive. This my have a negative effect on social skills, friends, and cognitive development. This is also commonly misdiagnosed on some children, it is best to have an accurate diagnosis.


hope this helps!
