Learning disabilities are the most numerous group of special educational needs and refer to people who do not benefit from formal education and present in the majority of their difficulties in reading and decoding. In the work, you attempt to theoretically understand the information in relation to the physiology of learning difficulties, so that teachers are able to understand and subsequently intervene by improving the cognitive function of those individuals who present a strong differentiation of learning image compared to other children, which have low school performance. Early detection of learning difficulties allows for early and effective intervention. The thesis is structured in bibliographic research references and its writing was also based on my many years of teaching experience.
