Specific learning disabilities (SLDs) are estimated to affect up to 10% of the population, and they co-occur far more often than would be expected, given their prevalences. We need to understand the complex etiology of SLDs and their co-occurrences in order to underpin the training of teachers, school psychologists, and clinicians, so that they can reliably recognize SLDs and optimize the learning contexts for individual learners. 
Impaired school well-being in children with specific learning disorder and its relationship to psychopathological symptoms
A growing body of literature indicates that children with Specific Learning Disorder (SpLD) are at risk of internalising and externalising problems. Instead, less is known about the factors that ma...
Developmental Learning Disorders: From Generic Interventions to Individualized Remediation
TLDR
This review focuses on two of the most prevalent learning disorders, dyslexia and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and examines current interventions, and considers the benefits of approaches that integrate remediation within other activities to encourage sustained motivation and improvements. Expand
Are specific learning disorders truly specific, and are they disorders?
TLDR
It is argued that the problems associated with a categorical approach need to be overcome by taking into account interacting factors at multiple levels of analysis that are associated with overlapping rather than entirely distinct domains of learning. Expand
Learning Differences and Medical Education
Learning disabilities are the most common type of disability among medical students and may first present as a problem during medical school or later impairing achievement and clinical performance.Expand
Beyond the “Third Method” for the Assessment of Developmental Dyscalculia: Implications for Research and Practice
There has been a continuous debate on different criteria on assessment of mathematical learning disability (MLD). Originally, MLD was defined as an unexpected failure to acquire basic mathematicsExpand
Psychological Principles of Learning Language in Children with ADHD and Dyslexia
Recent epidemiological data show that Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Dyslexia are highly prevalent in children population which needs to focus on research of special forms ofExpand

TLDR
This chapter supports the view of DD as a multifaceted neurodevelopmental disorder that is the result of multiple aberrancies at one or multiple levels of the information processing hierarchy, which supports successful arithmetic learning, and suggests that interventions should target all these systems to achieve successful outcomes.

Evidence-Based Assessment and Intervention for Dyscalculia and Maths Disabilities in School Psychology
In this chapter we describe the current status of knowledge about maths disabilities and dyscalculia, as well as suggested assessment and intervention practices that may help children with theseExpand
Psychophysiological Characteristics of Children with Dyslexia
Dyslexia is a specific learning disorder that involves difficulty reading due to decoding problems for letters and words. Statistics shows that 5-10% of the general population has dyslexia. TheExpand
A meta‐analysis of math performance in Turner syndrome
TLDR
The overarching aim of this review is to provide a systematic meta‐analysis of the differences in math and number performance between females with Turner syndrome and age‐matched neurotypical peers. Expand

The Co-occurrence of Reading Disorder and ADHD
TLDR
The epidemiology, treatment strategies, psychosocial impact, and economic burden associated with the co-occurrence of reading disorder and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder are summarized. Expand

TLDR
Comorbidity of learning disorders was confirmed in a fairly standard school population and girls with AD and boys with SD found a preponderance, while for comorbid problems gender ratios were mostly balanced with the exception of deficits in arithmetic and reading which were more typical for girls. Expand
Dyscalculia: From Brain to Education
TLDR
The neural bases of numerosity processing have been investigated in structural and functional neuroimaging studies of adults and children, and neural markers of its impairment in dyscalculia have been identified. Expand
Developmental dyslexia and specific language impairment: same or different?
TLDR
The authors suggest that 2 dimensions of impairment are needed to conceptualize the relationship between these disorders and to capture phenotypic features that are important for identifying neurobiologically and etiologically coherent subgroups. Expand
Neurogenetics and auditory processing in developmental dyslexia
TLDR
A tentative model in which phonological deficits could arise from genetic anomalies of the cortical micro-architecture in the temporal lobe is proposed. Expand
Developmental path between language and autistic‐like impairments: a twin study
Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are diagnosed when individuals show impairments in three behavioural domains: communication, social interactions, and repetitive, restrictive behaviours and interestsExpand
Reading and arithmetic in adolescents with autism spectrum disorders: peaks and dips in attainment.
TLDR
The most pervasive profile was discrepantly poor reading comprehension, which associated with severity of social and communication difficulties, and the high rate of uneven academic attainment in ASD has implications for educational practice. Expand
Developmental dyscalculia and basic numerical capacities: a study of 8–9-year-old students
TLDR
It is concluded that dyscalculia is the result of specific disabilities in basic numerical processing, rather than the consequence of deficits in other cognitive abilities. Expand
Calculation difficulties in children of very low birthweight: a neural correlate.
TLDR
A neuroimaging study of adolescent children who had been born preterm at 30 weeks gestation or less is conducted, to investigate the relationship between brain structure and a specific difficulty in arithmetic calculation and establishes a structural neural correlate of calculation ability in a group of neurologically normal individuals.

Genetics of developmental dyslexia
Developmental dyslexia is a highly heritable disorder with a prevalence of at least 5% in school-aged children. Linkage studies have identified numerous loci throughout the genome that are likely toExpand
