Learning disability is a neurological disorder of psychological or language processing resulting from abnormalities in the cerebral cortex of the cerebrum. Our cerebral cortex houses many different cognitive functions, such as attention, encoding of new information, retention of newly learned material, word knowledge, reasoning, processing speed, reading, math computation skills, writing, comprehension of verbal instructions, and many others.
Dental problems affect all children even those with learning disabilities. Common dental problems like gum bleeding, gum infections, chewing
problems, and tooth decay create a bigger challenge to children with disability. Most of these problems start as early as the tooth start to grow in tender age.
Learning disabilities are certain nerve related processing problems. Those who have learning disabilities will have problems with basic learning skills like reading, writing, memorizing or calculating a math problem.
