About cognition and learning difficulties

Last updated:

Cognition and learning refers to the acquisition of knowledge and skills through teaching (formal or informal) and personal experience.

Acquiring even the smallest, most seemingly straightforward piece of knowledge is a complex and multi-layered process, and difficulties may exist for one or more of the stages involved.

Cognition and learning difficulties are commonly divided into ‘general’ and ‘specific’ learning difficulties.
