Attention Deficit Disorder, in itself, is not a learning disability. The term “learning disability” typically refers to a perceptual disability, such as an auditory or visual processing disorder, like autism or dyslexia. A person with ADD, however, has no problems perceiving or interpreting information. Therefore, it does not qualify as a learning disability.
That happened to me recently. I had a woman with a walking aid attend one of my health lectures. She had just come from dialysis and was wearing an operating boot. I asked her if she had any health concerns and she said no. That’s right, she told me that apart from the wound in her foot that would not heal and her kidney failure she was otherwise in good health.
