Do output learning disabilities affect children differently than adults?

Output learning disabilities (LDs) tend to be most challenging for children. During early stages of development, many affected children become discouraged when they have difficulty keeping up with peers. These frustrations can lead to other social and behavioral issues, which is why early diagnosis is ideal. Once a learning disorder is identified, interventions can begin. Early interventions and Individual Education Plans can help children address areas of weakness early on and make them more likely to become successful adults.
Since most learning disabilities are present from a young age, most affected individuals have learned to compensate for and cope with their condition by the time they reach adulthood. However, undiagnosed LD can cause adult literacy issues and affect employment.
