Impairment: Ld comes out of school observation that some children, despite average or higher IQ have major difficulties with a particular type of task such as reading, even with extra support. The focus usually is on key academic skills--reading, math, writing. I cannot draw nearly as well as many of my peers, but there is no artistic ld. The key impaired learning not explained by iq.
