  1. U. S. Government Study On The Labeling Of Children:

    The term "learning disability" has appeal because it implies a specific neurological condition for which no one can be held particularly responsible, and yet it escapes the stigma of mental retardation. There is no implication of neglect, emotional disturbance, or improper training or education, nor does it imply a lack of motivation on the part of the child. For these cosmetic reasons, it is a rather nice term to have around.

  2. Peter Shergill:

    We are looking at learning disability, delirium and end of life, as well as further additions, we have a unique solution that is transferable across ethnicities and backgrounds... users can see the impact they are having.

  3. Justin Berry:

    This guy felt emboldened, look what he does, he goes across state lines and kidnaps a kid with a learning disability and brings him back to Texas and sexually assaults him, that's not OK. People should be shocked by that. If that doesn't shock your conscience I don't know what will.

  4. Mona Hanna-Attisha:

    In five years, when kids are diagnosed with a learning disability, we can never say it was from the lead, or if that kid was always supposed to have a brain disability.

  5. Chris Lobanov-Rostovsky:

    The evidence is pretty conclusive that to use labels for people in a variety of areas, whether that’s in a sexual offense, or a learning disability, or other types of scenarios, that to label somebody actually makes outcomes worse rather than better.
