People who have learning disabilities  “find it harder to learn certain life skills”. Everyone is unique of course, but common difficulties experienced include: writing, communication, money management, personal care or reading. Two-thirds of adults with learning disabilities in the UK are cared for by their families. A learning disability is caused by an injury, gene or illness which affects the development of the brain. In some cases, the symptoms are mild and the impact on a person’s life is minimal. For others, there may be complex and profound disabilities requiring 24/7 support to manage daily life.
