Schoolwork is hard for many young people, and reading and writing can be hardest of all. However, some students have trouble linking what one part of their brain tells them with the information they get from another part of their brain. These students have average or above average intelligence, but—although they don't have vision or hearing problems—they have trouble making sense out of what they see and hear. The result of their difficulties is called a learning disability.
