Is there a cure for output learning disabilities?

Most learning disabilities are life-long conditions that cannot be "cured." However, many individuals with LD can be successful in school and beyond. One of the benefits of early diagnosis is the opportunity to begin teaching affected individuals to cope with areas of difficulty and to help them address weaknesses. With the cooperation of teachers and parents, many affected individuals can develop learning techniques that will enable them to be successful in mainstream classrooms.

Other students benefit from untraditional instruction and a multidisciplinary educational approach. Educators and parents can work together to develop an individual educational plan (IEP). Compensatory strategies many also be useful. While these learning techniques do not "cure" the source of the problem, they do allow students to learn material and skills that might otherwise be inaccessible to them.
