Learning disabilities, however they are acquired, are lifelong. They are neurological disabilities and as such affect how an individual understands and remembers information, how they learn and communicate. People can be born with learning disabilities or they may acquire them later in life. 

There are many differing types of learning difficulty and they can exhibit in many different ways and with many different characteristics.
