Learning Disability happens to be a chronic condition of a presumed neurological origin which selectively interferes with the development, integration, and demonstration of verbal and nonverbal abilities. Past experiences reveal that Learning Disability is something that can't be outgrown nor 'cured' by medication, therapy, or expert tutoring. Thus, an individual with Learning Disability gets to face multiple hurdles in day to day life. In order to make like a bit easier for such individuals, this study tries to connect the dots between an individual with LD and the prenatal factors, the delivery conditions, the early schooling environment of his mother. The current study aims at investigating some specific factors common in the history of children with learning disability. The objective of the present research is to understand the causes of learning disability in children and to find out the most dominant factors. This study started with the hypothesis that there would be a positive relationship between mother's bed rest and medication during pregnancy & learning disability. Also early school difficulties of the child and learning disability were expected to be significantly correlated. The study concluded on a positive relationship among mother's bed rest, mother taking medication during pregnancy, early school difficulties of the child and learning disability.

Abstract


Learning Disability happens to be a chronic condition of a presumed neurological origin which selectively interferes with the development, integration, and demonstration of verbal and nonverbal abilities. Past experiences reveal that Learning Disability is something that can't be outgrown nor 'cured' by medication, therapy, or expert tutoring. Thus, an individual with Learning Disability gets to face multiple hurdles in day to day life. In order to make like a bit easier for such individuals, this study tries to connect the dots between an individual with LD and the prenatal factors, the delivery conditions, the early schooling environment of his mother. The current study aims at investigating some specific factors common in the history of children with learning disability. The objective of the present research is to understand the causes of learning disability in children and to find out the most dominant factors. This study started with the hypothesis that there would be a positive relationship between mother's bed rest and medication during pregnancy & learning disability. Also early school difficulties of the child and learning disability were expected to be significantly correlated. The study concluded on a positive relationship among mother's bed rest, mother taking medication during pregnancy, early school difficulties of the child and learning disability.
