Introduction

Specific Learning Difficulties Associated with Dyslexia

In this unit you will learn about some of the other specific learning differences (SpLDs) that very often co-occur with dyslexia, and explore how they affect language learning. The main focus is on dyspraxia, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and Asperger?s Syndrome, as these have the most impact on language learning. Some of the materials also make reference to other SpLDs such as dyscalculia.
