Does having a learning disability mean my child is slow or lazy?

No. Most children with a learning disability are of average or better than average intelligence. They are not lazy. Having a learning disability also does not mean that your child has poor vision or hearing, is mentally retarded, has a physical handicap, is emotionally disturbed, or suffers from a cultural disadvantage. It does mean that your bright child learns and processes information in a way that’s different from most people.
