Many of our service users have severe and profound disabilities and are diagnosed with more than one condition. Despite the wide variation, there are key factors which most people with LD’s typically face. These include difficulties with communication, learning and retaining learning and sensory processing issues such as motor coordination and hyper or hyposensitivity to sensory stimuli.
