These have been taken from SpLD Working Group 2005 DfES guidelines.
Students with SpLDs will present with significant and persistent
difficulties despite appropriate learning opportunities even when
additional educational provision has been made available.
Those affected by dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, attention
deficit disorder or any combination of these learning difficulties often
underachieve within the education system unless they receive
appropriate support enabling them to minimise their weaknesses and
utilise their strengths. Many underperform in examinations.
Both the severity of the impairment and the effectiveness of compensatory strategies vary widely.
