Learning conditions

A learning condition (or disability) affects the way you understand and communicate information.

Learning conditions can cause a person to have difficulty processing complex information, develop new skills or cope on their own.

The type of condition can be mild, moderate or severe and occurs during the brain’s development, either before birth, during birth or in early childhood. NHS data shows 1.5 million people in the UK have a learning condition, and 350,000 of those have a more severe learning disability.

Talk to a GP for further support with learning and development - either for you or your child.
