Definition

Learning Disability is one of the most common forms of disability in the UK. People with a learning disability find it harder than others to learn, understand, or communicate. Someone has a learning disability all through their life, but it is not an illness or a disease.

Many people with learning disabilities prefer the term ‘people with learning difficulties’. This is the term used by People First, an international advocacy organisation.
