Specific Learning Disability (SLD): IDEA

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA) defines SLDs as a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or in using itself in the imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell, or do mathematical calculations. This term includes such conditions as perceptual disabilities, brain injury, minimal brain dysfunction, dyslexia, and developmental aphasia. This term does not include a learning problem that is primarily the result of visual, hearing, or motor disabilities, of mental retardation, of emotional disturbance, or of environmental, cultural, or economic disadvantage.
