Living With Learning Disabilities: Relationships

Relationships require communication skills that often don’t come naturally to people with learning disabilities. If they are already struggling to make sense of printed words, or other sensory input around them, then picking up on tone of voice, facial expressions, body language, sarcasm, humor, or clichés is like learning yet another language. If they have problems producing clear speech, or speak more slowly than others, they might hesitate to join in conversations or give yes/no answers to avoid further stress.
