It describes a group of disorders characterized by inadequate development of specific academic, language, and speech skills.Types of learning disabilities include reading disability (dyslexia), mathematics disability (dyscalculia) and writing disability (dysgraphia). Learning bridge was started on February 2013 as a trial basis with 7 students who were coming at NISH for regular speech and language therapy. Before enrolling the children into the group initial assessments including IQ & Speech and language evaluation were done.
Mission: To provide evidence-based services that anticipate and respond to the needs of individuals who experience learning disabilities.
