Abstract

Approximately 50 percent of individuals with Learning Disability may also have one or more “related disorders."There is a range of neurologically based disorders that are frequently found together. The basic concept is that if something impacts on the developing brain, resulting in an area or system being “weird differently,” it is possible that other areas might be involved as well. These related disorders are referred to as “comorbid conditions.” If one among the family members has Learning Disability, it is important that the professionals working with him/her explore other problems that may be present so that they, too, can be addressed. A common disorder namely Dyslexia is known to be a complex neurodevelopmental disorder that affects 5 to 10% of school-age children and this condition consists in a specific learning disability with a neurological origin. This case study is intended to stimulate discussion on such issues which are hidden, unidentified and untreated. Also, it advocates that impact of increased awareness and utilization of workforce development (including the victim) on positive development of individuals with disabilities.
