Learning Disability

A learning disability is a collective term for various difficulties in learning and working. The individual manifestations differ greatly from one another and can affect different areas of learning, such as arithmetic, reading, but also the formation of connections between information. A learning disability is not necessarily synonymous with reduced intelligence. And it should definitely be distinguished from weaknesses that are present because of an open learning process - for example, when a person has only been learning German for six months.

Here are a few tips for dealing with people with a learning disability:

  • Communicate clearly and unambiguously

  • If necessary, form tandems with people who do not have a particular limitation in order to emphasise individual strengths rather than weaknesses.

  • Designate a permanent reference person and try to build up

  • and try to build esteem in the personal relationship to encourage open interaction.

  • Encourage people to ask questions if they do not understand something.
