What are output learning disabilities?

Output learning disabilities are a type of neurobiological disorder that affects learning due to differences in brain structure and function. Most individuals with this condition have average intelligence but have difficulty communicating using words or motor activity.

Output learning disabilities include language disability and motor disability. Individuals with language disability struggle answering questions and providing explanations. They tend to have more difficulty generating responses than initiating conversations. Individuals with motor disability may encounter problems with fine motor skills such as writing, cutting, or buttoning a shirt. They may also have difficulty with gross motor skills that affect running and walking.
