Learning Disability v. Learning Disorder

Is there a difference between a learning disorder and a learning disorder? If you’re not sure check out  Special Ed Post. Kimberly Allen talks about what a learning disorder is and what a learning disability is. I always thought they were basically the same things. According to Special Ed Post a disorder is a “clinical diagnosis”, which means a doctor or a therapist has to diagnose. A disability is having problems learning in an academic area like a history class or math. This article is going to help me write my paper being I’m writing about what the difference between a learning disorder and a learning disability. It will help me understand both of them  more so I can help others understand that they are actually different. Also, the amount of kids  that have these problems and how they get help for them.

Learning disabilities do not correlate with intelligence but with processing.
