Co-occurrence of adult ADHD with developmental co-ordination disorder, dyslexia and depression
Specific learning difficulties (SpLDs; also termed specific learning disabilities) is an umbrella term for a range of neurodevelopmental conditions, including dyslexia, developmental co- ordination disorder (also known as dyspraxia), dyscalculia and, in some cases, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. In the UK, professionals with appropriate professional training can undertake SpLD diagnostic assessments; if an SpLD is present and is of a severity that places an individual at a substantial disadvantage in comparison to non-affected individuals, educa- tional institutions and employers are legally required to make reasonable adjustments.
