Learning Disabilities

A learning disability is a permanent (cognitive) disorder that affects the manner in which individuals with average to above average intelligence take in, retain, and/or express information. Like interference on the radio or a fuzzy TV picture, incoming or outgoing information may become scrambled as it travels between the eye or ear and the brain.

Disability (LD) assessment is provided as a service to Mesa College students
