In brief: Hard to generalize
LD's are all different.
Sometimes it is an issue of input.A kid that does not learn well from listening to lectures may do better reading or visualizing what is being taught.If you discover how they learn best and use that input, they will do better.If it is a processing or memory deficit, it is harder to generalize an approach.

There are a number of compensatory things to help a person with a learning disorder. It depends on the type of learning disorder a person has.
If memory is a problem, having the person carry a notepad to remind them of how to do an important process can help them at work.
