Q: How does a language-based learning disability manifest itself in a child's development?

A: The answer to this question is taken in its entirety from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association website: "Dyslexia has been used to refer to the specific learning problem of reading. The term language-based learning disability, or just learning disabilities, is better because of the relationship between spoken and written language. Many children with reading problems have spoken language problems.

The child with dyslexia has trouble almost exclusively with the written (or printed) word. The child who has dyslexia as part of a larger language learning disability has trouble with both the spoken and the written word."
