Ld is defined on the basis of a major gap between a person's overall intelligence and his/her ability in a specific academic domain.
Named ones are reading disorder (dyslexia), mathematics disorder, and disorder of written expression. There also is ld not otherwise specified, for those with problems not captured by the above. It can't be because of lack of opportunity to learn.

In brief: CAPD

Dyslexia & dyscalculia are commonly known lds.
But most common are central language processing disorders. There are 4 divisions: discrimination, sequencing, figure-ground discrimination & working memory. These problems with language result in problems in academics, relationships, dialogue & work performance. There are equivalent disorders in the visual-spatial realm. ~ 15% population suffer these.
