About Attention Disorders (ADHD) & related Learning Difficulties
Difficulties with attention and working memory (also known as executive functioning difficulties) will commonly co-exist with both Specific Learning Difficulties in Reading, Writing & Mathematics (Dyslexia, Dysgraphia and Dyscalculia) as well as other disabilities such as Autism Spectrum Disorders, Developmental Language Disorders and Hearing Impairment.
