In the UK alone, there are 1.5 million people with learning disabilities. Some of these people are visibly disabled, but there are others that are normal in most areas of development, but have difficulty functioning in other parts of their life. If you do not have a friend or family member with a learning disability then you may find it hard to imagine the difficulties that they have.
What is a Learning Disability
There are a lot of misconceptions surrounding learning disabilities. The casual way in which the terms “learning disability” and “learning difficulty” are used interchangeably is the root of many of these misconceptions.
Learning difficulties such as dyslexia are not necessarily learning disabilities. Someone who has a learning disability may also have dyslexia or dyspraxia, but they are separate conditions. Learning difficulties can usually be worked around, and the effects of them can be minimised. Learning disabilities are broader in scope, and unfortunately often less well understood by the general public.
The teenage years are undoubtedly rough, both for the teen and his or her family. It is a rare occurrence for any person to report their teen years as being “smooth sailing”. However, it does seem as though the 21st century has heralded a plethora of new issues for adolescents. The ways in which teenagers choose to amuse themselves can lead down pathways that even the most educated adult might struggle with. Gambling, for example, is a surprisingly big problem among our teenagers today.
Before labeling teen gambling as “dangerous”, it must first be understood that there are two different types of gambling. The first, social gambling, involves a set amount of money, avoids high stakes and is merely for harmless fun. There are no IOUs involved in this type of gambling and, typically, it is not a recurring past-time. Instead, it is an occasional means of entertainment when the mood strikes. The second, pathological gambling, is dangerous and can lead to darker habits.
Most of the consumers of alcohol are either unaware of the adverse effects of it or are unable to help themselves to get rid of this hazardous habit. Researchers have shown that even a casual drinker of alcohol is at risk of various fatal diseases like short term memory loss, slow response time to stimuli, sleep disorders and many more. Though, the regular drinkers of alcohol are more at risk. Unfortunately, these health issues do not show any symptoms of their existence at the initial stage. In many cases, these are discovered after a person has spent several years with these lethal diseases. And when these are discovered to be present in the person’s body, they have already done irreparable damage to his body.
